  • TERAIL Afumex Subaqua 1.8/3 kV


Tailor-made solutions


In order to meet the specific needs deriving from a special application (Tunnel with frequent ingress of water, either fresh or salt), Prysmian developed a new design for 1.8/3 kV power cable with EPR insulation and LS0H anti-termite sheathing material: TERAIL Subaqua.

This cable leverages the excellent electrical ageing properties of EPR and avoids using metallic sheath or expensive swelling materials. Some of the benefits guaranteed by this solution are:

  • Water resistance - no water treeing - longer life-time
  • Higher overload temperature - safer
  • Better partial discharge resistance, no shrink-back, flexibility – better tolerance to jointers’ errors
  • Lead Free - Health and Safety - environmental benefits
  • Lighter, longer delivery lengths, lower number of joints, reduced jointing costs and jointing problems
  • Lower total investment cost
