RHEYFIRM®(RTS) (N)TSCGEWTOEUS Cable

Nexans rheyfirm-rts-n-tscgewtoeus cable

Reeling Cables 1.8/3 (3.6) kV up to 18/30 (36) kV

Applications

Flexible reeling cable for energy supply. Especially for high and extreme mechanical stress, e.g. torsional stress and high reeling speed. For deflection into different planes. Also usable for festoon systems, open-cast and underground mining.

Main applications: Ship to Shore Cranes (STS), Rail Mounted Gantry Cranes (RMG), Ship Unloader, Stacker Reclaimer and other heavy mobile equipment.
