The installation will see the utility achieve up to 1,200 amperes of current on a 3.3km 110 kV double-circuit overhead segment of its Cheremushki-Yughnaya line.

The line serves the Nagatino-Sadovniki portion of Moscow’s Southern Administrative District.

This is the second installation of 3M ACCR by MOESK in Moscow with three more soon to be completed.

3M ACCR is a lightweight, low-sag, high-capacity conductor which can carry twice the current or more of conventional steel-core conductors of the same diameter, on existing towers

The conductor was developed with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy with early contributions by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

MOESK is a Russia based interregional distribution grid company, serving a 47,000sqkm area with a population of about 17 million.

3M is a multinational conglomerate corporation based in the US.
