The Power Behind Wind Energy
facilities, General Cable
is a global leader in
the development,
manufacture and
distribution of wire and
cable needed for the
generation, transmission
and distribution of
electricity from emerging
wind energy technology.
From the Wind to the Outlet
From the nacelle and tower of the wind
turbine where electricity is created to the
step-up transformer where electricity is
transferred to the collection system, and
from the substation to the power grid,
General Cable provides a broad range of
renewable energy products for the
terrestrial and offshore wind markets.
Besides developing next-generation wind
products, General Cable has the offering to
comprise a complete cable solution for
wind power applications. From optical fiber
and grounding wires for SCADA systems,
low-voltage DC and AC connections and
medium-voltage distribution, to
high-voltage overhead, underground and
submarine transmission lines, only General
Cable has the range of products
engineered to withstand the demands of
entire wind power generation, transmission
and distribution systems — from the wind
to the outlet.
• Stable electrical properties over a broad
temperature range (-40°C to 90°C)
• Superior UV/sunlight, oil and ozone
resistance for use in a wind turbine
