Our two leading types of medium-voltage cable are XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) and EPR (Ethylene Propylene Rubber). The former is used worldwide, while the latter is mainly for selected markets.

From a design point of view, medium-voltage cables are of three types:

  • single-core cable,
  • three single-core cables laid-up,
  • three-core cable.

Nexans cables are custom designed to meet your high performance standards.
