Application

Medium Voltage energy distribution cable for use by the Distribution Network Operators (DNO's) and Independent Distribution Network Operators (IDNO's) to connect to local substations or small generation units. MDPE sheathed cables are typically used for direct burial or burial in ducts, DMZ 4 sheathed cables are typically used where the contribution of cables to a fire hazard require the use of cables with a low smoke, zero halogen (LSZH) sheath.
