Mercury Cable & Energy Partners with EC Source Services for Smart Conductor Installation

EC Source Services to provide installation services, with training and installation oversight, for Mercury Cable & Energy’s high voltage composite reinforced conductor.

Mercury Cable & Energy (MC&E), the leading developer of High Voltage Composite Reinforced Conductors (HVCRC) for electrical transmission lines, is pleased to announce that it has signed a strategic partnership with EC Source Services (ECS). Under the terms of the agreement, ECS will provide installation services for MC&E’s HVCRC conductor applications. Furthermore ECS has agreed to provide MC&E with training and installation oversight for HCVRC projects.

“We look forward to working with MC&E as they bring HVCRC to market,” said Brian E. Bratton, President and CEO of ECS.

MC&E approached ECS after extensive analysis of the High Voltage installation marketplace. Their outstanding reputation with U.S. utilities combined with their previous experience with High Voltage conductors make them an ideal partner for MC&E.

“We are pleased to reach this agreement with ECS,” said Todd Harris, President of MC&E. “ECS is an ideal fit for the introduction into the U.S. and Canadian markets of MC&E’s HVCRC products stranded by General Cable.”

EC Source (ECS) management team has a long-term record of successfully executing energy infrastructure projects ahead of schedule and under budget with safety and quality as our top priorities. With a mission critical fleet of highly specialized equipment, a strong capital base, and strategic locations in Arizona, Nevada, Texas, and Wyoming, ECS is uniquely positioned to consistently deliver superior results to the energy infrastructure industry.

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
