Thorne & Derrick, the UK Specialist Distributor of LV-MV-HV Cable Jointing, Installation & Electrical Equipment, have been requested by UL to support the distribution of their important MV Survey via our online, digital and social channels.

We are pleased and privileged to be able to support this important contribution to the future development of medium voltage cable standards - please take a moment to share your experience and knowledge.

The purpose of this questionnaire is to obtain industry information about medium voltage AC (alternating current) cables rated 5kV-46 kV that have been used for DC (direct current) applications. This survey is being conducted by UL LLC to aid in the development of standards for the safety of medium voltage DC cables.

Note: Please fill out one survey per use case. Multiple submissions are acceptable and may be necessary.
