Constructing, installing and testing both overhead and underground power cables requires know-how and craftsmanship. Alsema has specialized in this discipline since electricity was first introduced to society. We take pride in this vast experience with virtually every topic regarding power cables.
The capacity of underground power cables has been increased throughout the years and can now even exceed 400,000 Volts and core surfaces of up to 2,500 mm2. This development goes hand in hand with an ever increasing size and complexity of cable trajectories. By always staying fully up-to-date about these developments and by remaining highly active in this industry, Alsema has fully adapted to the global requirements of our clients.
In order to remain capable of handling all tasks involved in the future, Alsema developed and manufactures its own cable construction equipment that can handle the most versatile trajectories. Examples of these tools are electrically driven cable pulling machines that work synchronously both forwards and backwards.
Using our 100 cable pulling machines and synchronous winches, the construction of a 2,000 meter high voltage cable is a task we can complete; regardless of the characteristics of the terrain.
Transporting the cable drums at project sites is another tasks that Alsema completes using equipment that is developed and manufactured within the company. This enables us to transport cable drums up to 60 tons across the road in a special drum vehicle with pneumatic tires. Especially for unpaved roads, we developed the automatic caterpillar drum wagon that has a 40 tons capacity.
