Prysmian Group is relaunching its P-Laser cable, which focuses on offering innovative technology for power transmission grids, ensuring superior electrical performance, lower costs and greater environmental sustainability
According to Prysmian Group, P-Laser is compatible with existing cables and accessories and can boast more than 50,000km of cable produced.
The P-Laser cable system is based on the use of a patented thermoplastic material, high-performance thermoplastic elastomer (HPTE), which ensures that the product is fully recyclable, a simplified manufacturing process and a lower environmental impact than the traditional cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE).
Additionally, the P-Laser technology aims to provide better electrical characteristics, and in particular higher performance at high temperatures, greater intrinsic reliability and greater productivity.
The Group is celebrating this accomplishment with a renewed product image and a new milestone: its Pignataro Maggiore, Italy production plant has obtained the Carbon Footprint certification, thus further confirming the environmentally sustainable and 100% eco-friendly nature of this type of cable even in the production stage.
P-Laser cables are manufactured at a single continuous production facility and no chemical reactions are required to obtain the strong stable electrical properties required for MV and HVDC systems, thereby cutting production times and thus the related power consumption and gas emissions. P-Laser technology may be applied to power grids, renewable energy projects and underground and submarine HVDC cable systems — a unique first in the cable industry.
