Dry Termination for High Voltage Cables 145kV ABB Kabeldon TD145

Dry Termination for High Voltage Cables 145kV ABB Kabeldon TD145

Oil filled self supporting type cable terminations are generally used for high voltage (72-245kV) and extra high voltage (>245 kV) cables. The market has turned during the last few years towards outdoor cable terminations with composite insulators and there is also a preference not to use oil as insulation material (dry terminations). It is possible today to develop dry terminations where oil is not used for extra high voltages.

The customer advantage of a dry termination is a simpler installation and a more environmentally friendly product. In case of failure a dry cable termination solution is less likely to cause damage to surrounding equipment and, more importantly, inflict personal injury. Moreover, transportation also becomes more environmental friendly as there is no handling of chemicals or fluids.

Available dry cable termination solutions on the market have the drawback that they must be filled with insulating material on site and this procedure is cumbersome and the equipment expensive. The dry self supporting cable termination from ABB does not require any filling at site.

Combining proven and reliable technology with innovation and world class engineering, ABB in Alingsås developed and qualified (IEC 60840, Um 145kV) the self-supporting dry outdoor cable termination utilizing a “plug-in” technique.

The dry cable termination is pre-assembled and pre-filled with insulating material (silicone compound) from factory. This means no time consuming filling of insulating material at site by high voltage cable jointers and conractors. No risk for leakage – an environmentally friendly attribute.

With fewer operations during installation, the dry termination installation time at site after preparation of cable is reduced from about 5 hours for conventional oil filled terminations to less than 1 hour for the Kabeldon TD 145. Fewer components to install minimize the risk for mistakes - safety by simplicity.

ABB is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 135,000 people.

Combining proven and reliable technology with innovative thinking and world class engineering, ABB in Alingsås has developed and qualified (according to IEC 60840, Um 145 kV) a self supporting dry outdoor cable termination.
 

"Plug and play" - Pre-Assembled High Voltage Cable Terminations - the pre-assembled dry cable termination - a composite insulator including stress cone, filled with insulation compound is delivered as one unit from ABB factory and ready to be installed right out the box by trained high voltage cable jointers. Fewer components to install minimizes risk for mistakes - safety by simplicity.

Pre-filled at Factory -
t
he dry termination is pre-filled with an insulating material (silicone compound) under secure conditions at factory. This means no time consuming filling of insulating material at site. It also means no risk for leakage, an environmentally friendly attribute.

Assembly Time - Less Than An Hour - the installation time for dry cable terminations at site will be remarkably short. After cable preparation, the dry cable termination is completed within the hour. Compared to conventional oil filled cable termination that take at least five hours this is a significant reduction in time.
