Research, Science, Innovation & Forensics Case Studies

High Temperature Low Sag Conductor Adoption

Energyline have supported the type registration schemes for both Aluminium Conductor Composite Core (ACCC, CTC) and Aluminium Conductor Composite Reinforced (ACCR, 3M). Our involvement included developing the type test regime in the absence of a wholly applicable UK standard, test witnessing and factory audits.

New Suite of Transmission Structures – NeSTS

Energyline have been a key contributor to Scottish and Southern Electricity Network’s (SSEN) successful Network Innovation Competition (NIC) proposal to develop a New Suite of Transmission Structures (NeSTS)
