Product Overview: Protection-Layer Pipe Systems for Power or Energy Cables

Energy makes our life easier. It allows human beings to greatly enhance their comfort and wellbeing. To reconcile the increasing energy demand with the climate goals, powerful electricity grids designed for renewable energies are required.
In doing so, it is not always possible to produce electricity close to the consumer. A reliable, cost-efficient and environment-friendly transportation of energy from renewable sources is crucial in this context. Underground cable routes are an essential component of the new European electricity grid.
Sustainable expansion and protection of this delicate electricity infrastructure requires cable protection systems. The egeplast manufacturing range comprises temperature-resistant plastic pipes for high- and extra-high voltage cables for up to 525kV and offers grid operators and construction companies customized system solutions for constructing electricity routes.

Protective pipe for high and extra high voltage cables

egeplast Power Protect PE (former ege®com Macroduct-High-T) is a protective pipe made from polyethylene, which is used for high and extra high voltage cables up to 380 kV. The protective pipe has an increased thermal stability due to a special PE-HD material, in order to withstand high thermal loads for a long period of time. Due to this the electricity distributors can ensure a long service life of their grid.
