Advanced Reliability, Safety and Sustainability
With more than 40 years track record of providing optimized nuclear cables with proven reliability, performance and safety, we continue to meet the needs of nuclear facilities. As a strong proponent of energy independence, alternative energy and sustainability, we offer technology-driven nuclear cable designs to provide an infrastructure for long-standing nuclear power operations.
Innovation for Next Generation Nuclear Power
Backed by a commitment to understand and solve nuclear application challenges, we offer the most rigorous requirements for modifications, upgrades and new construction of nuclear facilities.
General Cable has provided energy cables for Areva’s III-generation EPR reactor in Flamanville (France) as well as Class 1E cables and Category K3 cables for the renovation of the Spanish and French park respectively during more than 40 years.
