Sterlite Optical Technologies Ltd., India’s leading global provider of Power Transmission Conductors, Optical Fibers and Telecommunication Cables announced that the its specialized power transmission conductors - ACSR ACO & ACSR 490/65 were tested for ‘Creep Test’ by SAG, Germany and the results indicate that these products can be used in transmission line networks for additional 10 years above the normal life time of the conductors, currently required by Power & Utility Incumbents.
The purpose of the Creep Test for Power Transmission Conductors is to compute Sag, Tensions for the overhead conductors and Conductor Lifetime for the designed sag and tension.
Says Mr Pravin Agarwal – Director, Sterlite Optical Technologies Ltd, “Overhead Power transmission Conductors account for 10% of the cost of a typical Power Transmission & Distribution network. The Creep Test results for our conductors have a significant economic impact for Power & Utility Companies, as the conductors can be used for more than the designed lifetime of the network.”
