Low-voltage power cables

  • Low-voltage power cablesThese ≤1KV cables are PVC for tramways, and halogen-free, low smoke and fire-retardant for subways.
  • Generally used for traction, station equipment (lighting, escalator, automatic doors) and tunnels (ventilation).
  • Cables for emergency equipment are also fire-resistant for circuit integrity.


These cables are used in the entire Paris underground system and in all Paris tramways, including 60 km of new tram lines to be built around the city circumference and to connect suburban communities through tram-train services.

Power Network Cabling/Low Voltage/LV Underground Cables

Medium and low-voltage cables (1kV to 60 kV) are used in the basic distribution network that brings power from high-voltage substations to cities and remote areas.

To provide this needed power for change, Nexans has been leading the way in new materials and designs for distribution cables and networks. We also master installation techniques in some of the toughest environments imaginable, including submarine, aerial and dense urban conditions.

Accessories, too, are key elements in any powergrid. That is why we custom design joints, terminations and connections to user's specifications. We offer a full range of standard products, and have the logistics to deliver turnkey projects worldwide.
