In the last decade, the renewable energy sector has become increasingly more cost competitive compared to other power sources.
Based on Lazard’s annual analyses, the level cost of energy from solar and wind declined by 86 % and 67 % respectively between 2009 – 2017. The current limitation on renewable power source is the lack of production-on-demand ability. Therefore, SILON is carefully monitoring the current state of the area in power storage Solutions to deliver the right product to the customer at the right time.
For this sector, SILON can offer XLPE insulation and the PEX HFFR jacket compound, both moisture-cured and designed for photovoltaic and grid connection cables of up to 1.5 kV, with service temperature -40 – +90°C and extended service life (20,000 h @ 120°C).
These products comply with the requirements of:
DIN EN 60332-1-2
ISO EN 50618
TÜV 2 PfG 1169/08. 07
Currently, our R&D department is working on solutions suitable for low-voltage power cables in onshore and offshore wind turbines.
