LDVC, control and instrumentation cables for nuclear plants



relies on Marmon IEI innovation to mitigate radiation exposure

In traditional power generation, such as coal, gas, or hydroelectric power plants, there are several types of cables used throughout the facility. For power generation, whether in traditional power or nuclear power generation, the cables are typically high voltage alternating current (HVAC) cables used to transmit large amounts of power over long distances. However, in order to keep these plants operating at maximum efficiency, they must also rely on LVDC cables to transmit control signals and data between the various components of the power plant. With nuclear power plants, additional requirements for their cables are needed in order to withstand the high levels of radiation that are present. These cables are typically made of materials that are resistant to radiation and have a high resistance to corrosion.

Marmon IEI has been recognized internationally as the premier cable designer and manufacturer for nuclear facilities. Our cables have been installed in over 130 nuclear plants throughout the world. Our engineers and research and development teams are designing products to meet 60 year cable life expectancy, increased radiation resistance, as well as developing cable designs for Fiber, Data, Coax, and Specialty Cables.

As a premiere supplier and manufacturer of cables for the nuclear power plant market, we are committed to meeting industry and regulatory standards designed to be compliant with 10CFR50 Appendix B, NQA-1-2013, 10CFR21, IEEE 383, and IEEE 323.
