High Capacity Meets Low Sag
How innovative materials can bring new life to old lines
Plan for future growth, deliver more power, leverage your assets, be environmentally conscience and do it all with minimal expense. If this sounds familiar, then you don’t want to miss this Webinar.
Chester Kowalik, Senior Consulting Engineer in Transmission Design & Project Engineering with Center Point Energy in Houston (CNP) will share how his company’s strategy for meeting increasing load requirements relies on high-temperature low-sag conductors to increase line ratings.
CNP’s service territory consists of coastal areas, highly industrial areas, rural areas and congested business and residential districts. A 138-kV line in a rapidly growing area northeast of Houston, between the communities of Crosby and Mt. Belvieu, was scheduled for upgrade. The solution that was identified was an innovative new product from Southwire Company, LLC, C7™ Overhead Conductor. This product is the culmination of seven years of development between Southwire Company, LLC, the leading manufacturer of transmission conductors, and Celanese, a leading manufacturer of high-performance carbon-fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites.
During this Webinar Chester Kowalik will discuss:
- Why this conductor was selected for the 138-kV line between Crosby and Mt. Belvieu
- The challenges and opportunities that were considered with line design
- Installation and crew training
- Thoughts and recommendations on future projects
Mark Lancaster and Paul Springer will discuss:
- Advanced conductor materials for transmission lines
- What to expect from an HTLS conductor
- Line Designers
- Transmission System Reliability
- Anyone involved in the process of line construction
- Asset Management
- Sustainability professionals
