Breadth of Product

From the nacelle and tower of the wind turbine where electricity is created to the step-up transformer where the electricity is transferred to the collection system, and from the substation to the power grid, General Cable provides a broad range of renewable energy products for the terrestrial and offshore wind markets.

  • Nacelle cables to withstand the flexing and vibrations of the turbine
  • Tower cables, both copper and aluminum, for flexible and static vertical tower applications
  • Insulated and bare grounding products that meet tower and system grounding requirements
  • High-dielectric-strength, low-dielectric-loss, underground collection system cables that provide efficient transmission of power to the substation for distribution
  • Substation and transmission overhead and underground transmission conductors and cables that deliver power from the substation to the power grid
  • Optical fiber Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system cables for wind farm monitoring and operational networks
