Electricity and lighting

As a major player in electricity infrastructure, SOGETEL is building major electricity transmission networks. The company supplies high-voltage lines, also known as HV lines. These lines carry electricity from the power plant to the consumer households. They are generally above ground but can also be buried. SOGETEL builds this type of infrastructure from conductive cables surmounted on steel pylons.

The lines supplied by SOGETEL are able to withstand several hundred thousand volts.

SOGETEL also implements low voltage lines or BTA lines up to 1500 volts in direct voltage.

The importance of ground cables

The ground cables installed by SOGETEL make it possible to avoid potential overvoltage in the event of a lightning strike. They act as a lightning rod but can also accommodate a fiber optic cable to allow the operator to communicate.

In the field of ground, HTA and BTA cables, SOGETEL works with its partner NEXANS, the world leader in the cable industry.
