Fire regulations

Construction product regulations (CPR) regarding fire reaction will come into force for cables on 1st December 2015 with a one-year transition period.


Standard EN 50575:2014, power, control and communication cables, is the umbrella standard for cables. It details the fire requirements for cables used in construction works, allowing a declaration of performance (DoP) to be made to allow the CE mark to be fixed to cables.



Data demo

Apollo and Alcatel-Lucent submarine networks (ASN) have demonstrated a capacity of 8Tbit/s of data per fibre pair – equivalent to approximately 1.25 million simultaneously streamed HDTV channels –on the Apollo South system, connecting France to the USA.


ASN used its current generation 1620 Light Manager submarine line terminal, equipped with the latest 100GBp/s technology and utilising detection techniques and advanced error correction coding. In combination with proprietary modulation and pulse shaping schemes, this commercially available solution counteracts the signal distortions and noise that impact high speed, long distance transmission performance.



Cables secure exchange

Norway’s Statnett is reinforcing the country’s electricity network with the Inner Oslofjord power connection project, using Nexans’ 420kV subsea cable systems.


Statnett is investing in the Inner Oslofjord project to ensure security of power supplies for customers in central eastern Norway by replacing two existing links, built in 1958 and 1975. The new systems will also enable power exchange with Sweden.
