Medium-voltage cables

Medium-voltage cables are manufactured at the voltage level of 12–36 kV. The medium-voltage cables of the Dryrex product family of Reka Cables are manufactured in Riihimäki, at the most modern medium-voltage cable factory in Northern Europe. Medium-voltage cables are manufactured of aluminium and copper and their cross-sections extend up to 1,200 mm2.

Dryrex medium-voltage cables are plastic cables insulated using cross-linked (XLPE) polyethylene, representing first-class insulation technology.

The extremely reliable medium-voltage cables are used in the industry, power production, power transfer and distribution, and at wind farms. In addition, these medium-voltage cables are used in public transportation infrastructures, for example, to power up train and metro lines. If required, our medium-voltage cables can also be manufactured of special plastics when, having a fire rating, they can also be installed indoors and in tunnels.

Reka Cables is close to its customers and knows their needs. As a result, we do not focus on standard products alone – we can also manufacture tailored products that require special solutions, such as customer-specific cable structures and solutions.

Medium-voltage cables are mainly used to build weather-resistant networks and to improve the reliability of networks. The use of medium-voltage cables enables the transfer of power networks underground, which has proven to be a reliable method of avoiding any power failures caused by storms. By building power networks that are more resistant to extreme weather and demanding conditions, we can also ensure that society maintains its operating capacity.
