Pakistan Cables Limited has successfully completed the installation of Pakistan’s first ever Aluminum Conductor Composite Core ACCC® in the National Transmission & Despatch Company’s (NTDC) system. As a result, the capacity of the 220 kV Double Circuit Transmission Line from Gatti Substation to Nishatabad Substation has been doubled by replacing the conventional ACSR conductor with ACCC® conductor of same diameter and lighter weight. This re-conductoring project was completed without any modifications to the existing towers and structures. The project completion costed half the amount and time that would have been required to build another transmission line.
Anticipating the need of energy conservation and efficiency in Pakistan’s power transmission & distribution System, Pakistan Cables had launched Aluminum Conductor Composite Core ACCC®.
