Mercury Cable & Energy Announces first HVCRC Smart Conductor order being produced in China

Jul 02 2011

Mercury Cable & Energy (MC&E), the leading developer of High Voltage Composite Reinforced Conductors (HVCRC) for electrical transmission lines, is pleased to announce that its Chinese affiliate has completed production on a 3,000 meter sale of HVCRC Hawk conductor for delivery in July, 2011. An additional order for 11,000 meters of Drake HVCRC Conductor has also been received for delivery in August 2011. These orders constitute the first Sino-U.S. composite core manufactured in China using technology developed in the U.S.

“We are pleased to see commercial production begin in the China composite pultrusion plant,” said Todd Harris, President of MC&E. “These orders constitute the first composite core manufactured in China through a Sino-U.S. Joint Venture using technology developed in the U.S.”

Mercury Cable & Energy is a privately‐held developer of High Voltage Composite Reinforced Conductors (HVCRC), Smart Conductors for the Smart Grid. The patented HVCRC Smart Conductor is superior to existing conductors in a number of key performance areas including:

  • Up to double the current carrying capacity of ACSR
  • Substantially reduces high‐temperature sag
  • Requires fewer structures for new line construction
  • Increases capacity of existing rights‐of‐way and structures through retrofitting
  • Eliminates bi‐metallic corrosion
  • Significantly reduces line losses compared to same‐diameter conventional and composite conductors at equal operating temperatures
