May 25, 2022
FLORIDA, N.Y.—A newly expanded line of cables from Remee Wire & Cable is designed specifically for power collection and distribution in solar and wind power generation systems. The renewable energy cables, marketed by Remee as Renewables™, are manufactured under ISO 9001 certification, according to a release from the company.
Remee Wire & Cable manufactures electronic wire and cable, including copper and fiber optic cable. Its experience in manufacturing rugged cables for use in many types of harsh outdoor environments provides assurance of signal integrity and continued performance, Remee said in the release.
For wind towers, Remee provides cables for blade grounding, cabling from the nacelle to the intermediary collection point, and collection cable from the many intermediary collection boxes to the substation.
For solar power, Renewables by Remee include Photovoltaic (PV) Cables for interconnecting solar arrays; Collection Cables to connect the panels with intermediary collection points; and Medium Voltage Cables, in copper or aluminum, to transmit power to substations.
Remee’s Solar Array Cables incorporate copper PV wire, rated at 2,000V with cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) jackets for durability. Its Collection Cables use aluminum PV wire, also rated at 2,000V with cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) jackets for durability.
The company’s Medium Voltage Cables include the Aluminum and Copper MV Series, both rated at 35kv. They feature tree-retardant cross-linked polyethylene (TF-XLPE) insulation and a cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) jacket. The cable is designed for use in three-phase systems with voltage not exceeding 35,000 volts phase to phase, and conductor temperatures not exceeding 105°C for normal operation. They are suitable for direct burial, the company said.
The Renewables cables also include a family of interference-free Fiber Optic Cables. These cables are available with loose tube construction, featuring gel-free AquaLock™. They are available with and without armor, and with fiber in duct upon request, according to the release.
In addition to offering a large selection of standard cables, Remee can summon its engineering and manufacturing expertise to modify standard cables and produce complex and custom-made cables. Its Bare Stranded Copper Ground Wire is available per custom requests, the company said.
According to Remee, its Renewables cables comply with all applicable requirements of the following standards: ICEA S-94-649 (standard for concentric neutral cables rated 5 through 46 KV); AEIC CS8 (specification for extruded dielectric, shielded power cables rated 5 through 46 KV); UL1072–MV90 and MV105 (standard for medium-voltage power cables); and CSA 68.10 (shielded power cable for commercial and industrial applications, 5-46 KV).
All compounds are handled and loaded in a Class 10,000 clean room, and an optical pellet analyzer is used by the supplier to perform 100 percent pellet inspection, the company said.
