GREENPAS – a new generation of conductors for overhead lines

By admin, March 5, 2012 11:46 am

Monday, Mar 05, 2012

Cables GREENPAS manufactured by TELE-FONIKA Kable have a unique three-layer structure of the insulation. The core wire is a conductor of an alloy of Al-Mg-Si, which is sealed with a special swelling powder, serving as a barrier preventing longitudinal migration of moisture. Semi-conducting layer, which is imposed on the wire, is responsible for the uniform distribution of electric field. Another insulating layer is a thermoplastic polyethylene LDPE. The outer casing is made of thermoplastic HDPE immunized to UV radiation and weathering. Just through the use of thermoplastic polyethylene it is possible to lead a full recycling of materials after usage. Compared to traditional PAS wires (with one layer of insulation) the cables GREENPAS – due to used three-layer structure – are characterized by higher insulation resistance and insulation resistance to partial discharges and sliding discharges, what is the reason that the wires are substantially less damageable than PAS wires, and provide a longer period of safe operation.

Repairs to Submerged Internet Cable in Kenyan Port May Take Three Weeks

By admin, February 29, 2012 1:55 pm

It may take a full three weeks to repair a submerged Internet cable that was damaged recently by an anchor in the Kenyan port of Mombasa, according to news reports. The damaged cable has led to major delays in Internet service provided to Kenya and nearby nations.

The BBC reported that Internet connections are running 20 percent slower in Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Ethiopia and South Sudan’s capital, Juba.

The 3,000-mile cable reaches from Mombasa to the United Arab Emirates, and it was installed in 2008 and 2009. It cost $130 million to build, and is owned by The East African Marine System (TEAMS). To give an idea of the importance of three underwater cables, the number of Internet subscriptions in Kenya increased from 1.8 million to 3.1 million in the year after the cables were installed, according to The BBC.

As of early this week, about 10 percent of the cable was working which allowed for the cable to be used for “crucial services such as banking,” says the AFP News Agency. The BBC reports that Internet providers and mobile phone operators were re-routed to other infrastructure which escaped damage by the dropped anchor.

In comments made to The Guardian, Toby Shapshak, editor of Stuff magazine in South Africa, said that, “This reveals how fragile the physical infrastructure for Africa’s internet access is. Because of the distances involved, the primary connections, in the main, are undersea cables which can be easily disrupted by a careless anchor.”

“But it does show there has been progress in African connectivity,” he added. “Losing 20 percent of East Africa’s connectivity is a lot better than losing all of it, as would’ve been the case had this happened a few years ago.”

TEAMS is partly owned by the Kenyan government, according to a report carried on TMCnet.

In a related matter, on Feb. 17 another ship’s anchor cut the cables of Eassy, a group of telecom companies. The accident took place in the Red Sea, according to Deutsche Presse-Agentur GmbH.
