Composite Technology Corporation (CTC), through its subsidiary CTC Cable, has won the first conductor order in California, US.
The order, issued by the City of Riverside Public Utilities (RPU), California, is comprised of ACCC 1183kcmil conductor and associated hardware to be used for reconductoring a 69kV, one mile portion of a 120 MVA transmission line for RPU.
The installation of the conductors is slated for early Spring 2011.
The company said that RPU considered upgrading its existing 654kcmil ACSR conductor to achieve higher capacity and lower losses at the same clearances.
CTC Cable is the global supplier of composite core conductor with over 6,100 miles (9,900km) of ACCC conductor selected for 156 commercial deployments on transmission and distribution lines.
