parachute.jpgEastleigh MP Chris Huhne has warned that many lives could be lost in fires caused by sub-standard imports of electrical cable.
“This shoddy cable is a threat to British lives and local jobs and we must fight it vigorously” said Mr Huhne. “Buying cheap sub-standard cable is a clear fire risk and could expose builders and wholesalers to actions for negligence or worse”.
Mr Huhne has tabled parliamentary questions on behalf of Prysmian, a major local employer in Bishopstoke that produces EU-tested quality cable. More than a quarter of the electrical fires in England are due to problems with wires, cable and leads to appliances.

The ACI (Approved Cables Initiative) recently formed, led by the BCA (British Cables Association) is an initiative involving the whole cable systems supply chain from end to end – from manufacturer through installer to end user.  To ensure that the cables systems and products purchased and installed throughout the UK are safe, fit for purpose and fully compliant with the requisite specifications, standards and approvals.

The British Approvals Service for Cables is stepping up its scrutiny and testing of cables on the market in the UK, with the active support of the British Cables Association (BCA).
BASEC purchases a range of products from the open market to check conformity.  End users also approach BASEC when they experience problems with cable they have purchased.  On testing, many of these are found not to comply with British Standards, and some could be considered as dangerous.

Innovative 11–25kV aluminum-steel overhead conductor
R. Emma, F. Boiani, M. De Nigris, R. Berti, R. Fava, D. Valori, G. Civili
During the last decade the cost of copper and aluminium base metal has risen and challenged Energy Utilities in developing alternative cost-effective technological solutions. Enel SpA, together with Cesi Ricerca SpA and two accredited manufacturers (Tratos Cavi SpA and De Angeli Prodotti SpA), engineered an innovative MV overhead bare conductor made of annealed aluminium, extruded around a supporting steel core. In this paper we will illustrate the new conductor with the more traditional overhead conductor types and its economical and environmental benefits and drawbacks.

The correct application of the product will be carried when the cable on the drum has an homogeneous winding. In order to assure the complete protection of cables, the product has to be overlapped about 4 cm before the closing of the drum.
