Alliander confirms trust in Laborelec’s cable quality assessment

The Dutch distribution network operator Alliander has renewed its contract with Laborelec for quality checks for its medium voltage cables. Laborelec uses an accelerated water tree test that makes it possible to better monitor cable condition, increase cable availability, and evaluate the quality of new cables. Quality assessment is becoming more and more important as cables are increasingly ageing and experiencing more stress due to growing decentralized energy production. In addition, new cable manufacturers are entering the market, but their quality is not yet known.

Accurate thermal soil measurements prevent cable overheating

Cables are increasingly being installed in soils and, as a result, are more prone to overheating. Laborelec now offers highly accurate thermal soil characterization measurements for medium voltage (MV) cables. Network operators can use this information to select optimal cable trajectories.
