In December 2009, Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions (BBUSL) approached SEB for a cable drum trailer to SEBcope with a hgh voltage cable drum, which weighed 50,000kg.

The cable laying and pulling project was an underground cable tunnel from Croydon to Beddington and the overhead power cables were being taken down and replaced by 400kV cable, which was running through the cable tunnel to severely reduce the cost of future maintenance and upkeep.

This cable drum requirement was in 40 years of manufacturing the largest project SEB had ever been asked to take on, the high voltage cable drum was 4500mm in diameter and 3700mm in width, which made the overall width of the cable drum trailer 5200mm.

The cable drum trailer was delivered in the middle of 2010 and the cable laying project was completed in early 2011, the drum trailer operated successfully and the client was very happy with its performance.
