Yesterday, T&D supplied 2,500 metres of Polypipe Ridgicoil Underground Cable Ducting to the new solar park array at Nova Scotia Farm, West Caister, Great Yarmouth UK. 

Polypipe Ridgicoil cable ducting will provide underground cable protection to buried LV and HV power cables.

Underground Cable Protection - Polypipe Ridgiduct Ridgicoil

The new project consists of a photovoltaic (PV) solar park array, located upon 29.60ha of arable crop producing farmland.

The PV solar park array is expected to have a maximum power output of 11.8MW over a lifespan of 25 years.

T&D have supplied 14 x 50m coils of Polypipe Ridgicoil RC90X50BE (90mm outside diameter cable duct) and 36 x 50m coils of Polypipe Ridgicoil RC63X50BE (63mm outside diameter cable duct) - the cable ducting will provide power cable protection to electrical LV and HV cable.

Polypipe Ridgicoil is a strong yet flexible alternative to conventional cable ducting for underground power utilities. Polypipe Ridgicoil flexibility eliminates the need for special bends and the smooth bore has a low co-efficient of friction for ease of cable installation.
