Tratoswind is the latest generation of medium voltage power cables from UK manufacturer Tratos Ltd. for use with wind turbines.
With the UK boasting 40% of Europe's total wind energy, the new range of Tratoswind cables has been designed to provide home-grown industrial, commercial and larger domestic wind power users with quality cabling for wind turbines that combines flexibility and durability.
Tratoswind cables have a maximum torsional stress of +/-100º/m, a tensile load of 30N/sqmm on the copper cross section and operate at temperatures ranging from -40ºC to +90ºC. They are oil, ozone ad UV resistant and manufactured to DIN VDE 0250.
Tratos has invaluable experience operating in the wind farm industry, having supplied medium voltage cables and fibre optic cables to several wind farms across Europe. The most recent of these has been Wolf Bog wind farm in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, which is operated by Scottish Power. The farm generates enough energy for over 5000 homes and offset 22,000t of CO2.
