Tratos has pioneered greener, cleaner Renewable Energy Cables and continues to advance the technology. Working with its customers it has developed a range of environmentally friendly solutions for the challenges they face.
The company has supplied cables to minimise AMP systems emissions. Its cable is helping keep ships in port (emissions) and alternative energy facilities cleaner. Its TratosAeolus cable can be found in wind farms throughout Europe, and TratosDaedalus in solar installations, including Surbo, built in Ciminna, Palermo; the biggest photovoltaic field in Europe.
The company spent years developing Renewable Energy Cables without halogens to provide greater protection for people and a more environmentally friendly option. Tratos also developed cables with increased pulling tension to allow easier electrification of diesel RTG cranes.
Since 1980, Tratos has used clean, renewable energy from its own hydroelectric plant. In 2001, the company started producing Tratos Green, a cable made using only hydroelectric energy. Tratos has supplied Medium Voltage cables, and Optical Fibre Cables to several wind farms around Europe and was the first to receive environmental approval from BASEC (BA2250:1996-2) ,UL, VDE, Lloyds Register (for cables inside ships), and EAC (approving sales in Russia).
