A new pneumatic steel strapping cutter has been launched by the Werkzeugfabrik Albert Krenn. The KRC-8L-S not only ensures the effortless cutting of steel strappings, but also ensures maximum of on-the-job safety.
Experience has shown that whenever tensional steel strappings of wire coils, pallets and cargo are being removed, the risk of injuries increases. This kind of steel cutter helps to reduce the risk associated with this by ensuring a large safe distance during cutting operations.
The Highvolt calibration laboratory has extended its portfolio of calibration services to include systems for the measurement of impulse current and AC power.
The parameter of AC power is used to evaluate the energy efficiency of power engineering equipment. In the case of impulse current calibration, it is possible to calibrate impulse currents up to 200kA and with a waveform of 8/20μs, depending on the individual measuring system.
Prysmian Group has been awarded a new contract worth approximately €95m by IPTO (Independent Power Transmission Operator), the transmission system operator of the Greek electricity system, for the interconnection between the island of Syros (Cyclades) and the mainland power transmission system in Lavrion, Greece.
The project involves the design, supply and installation of a turnkey high voltage alternating current (HVAC) cable system designed to transmit a power of 200 MVA and consisting of 150kV extruded cables and associated fibre optic cable system along a total route of more than 110km (108km submarine and 2km land) for the interconnection between the two landfalls that will enable integration of Syros into the Greek network system and future expansion to the other Cyclades Islands of Paros, Mykonos and Tinos.
