Tratos joins forces to manufacture revolutionary energy loss cable

Pioneering tech start-up Enertechnos has joined forces with global cabling manufacturer Tratos to develop a revolutionary cable which has the potential to tackle the UK’s energy loss crisis.

Following the completion of testing, Tratos, which sells cables to 52 countries worldwide, has signed an agreement to manufacture Enertechnos’ revolutionary high-tech, low-loss solution. The Capacitive Transfer System (CTS) cable can drastically reduce energy losses, meaning less energy is wasted and carbon emissions are driven down. In developing the cable, Tratos intends to promote its sale to clients all over the world.

Energy losses are a growing problem in the UK. Last year energy system losses totalled 26,554GWh, which is enough energy to power seven million homes and costs the UK just under £1.3 billion. The CTS tackles these losses head on by providing a cost-effective solution to replacing existing outdated cabling and deploying new infrastructure. By balancing reactance and capacitance, the cable’s technology significantly reduces voltage drop during transmission by as much as 50 per cent, resulting in lower energy loss.

Next for the CTS is a real-world trial, that will see it be installed by a leading Distribution Network Operator and has game-changing potential across the energy industry – from boosting the productivity of wind farms, to helping the UK meet the demand necessary for its growing electric vehicle infrastructure.

Dominic Quennell, Managing Director of Enertechnos, said:
“For the last few years, Enertechnos has been working tirelessly to develop the CTS and transform electrical transmission. Today’s news is a game-changer for electrical energy efficiency and we are delighted to be working with Tratos, who are renowned globally for innovation and their exceptionally well-made cables.

“Today’s announcement is a ringing endorsement of Enertechnos’ revolutionary technology and is an important step towards delivering greater energy security, reduced carbon emissions, and lower consumer costs.”

Dr Maurizio Bragagni, CEO of Tratos, said:
“Everyone at Tratos has worked hard to instil innovation at the core of what we do, which is why we are incredibly excited to be working with a company like Enertechnos. We have followed Enertechnos’ journey to develop the CTS closely and are now delighted to join them in the next stage of manufacturing the cable.

“As a forward-looking and thinking company, we see a glaring need for a cable which can reduce excessive losses and support evolving infrastructure needs. The CTS provides a much-needed solution, and we look forward to showcasing its vast benefits to our global clients.”
