In the latest development, Vologda TPP and Vologdaenergo this month reported the installation of 3M ACCR
(Aluminum Conductor Composite Reinforced) on a line that links new combined-cycle gas turbine generating units to Vologdaenergo's power line network.
Replacing the existing lines with 3M's ACCR
was an easy solution.
We are integrating our two new businesses Park Ridge, NJ-based ACCR
and its affiliated company, Mexico City-based, Possehl into MFC.
is a lightweight, low-sag, high-capacity conductor that can carry twice the current or more of conventional steel-core conductors of the same diameter, on existing towers, thereby helping utilities circumvent problems in crowded urban settings and environmentally sensitive areas.
MFC acquired 60% of the shares of Possehl and 70% of the shares of ACCR
The utility chose 3M ACCR
to achieve up to 1,200 amperes of current on a 3.
Tender notice number : 6051/DOI/ICE/EME/201409025/WASHER 22 / ACCR
All key managers of ACCR
and Possehl will remain with the acquired companies, and both ACCR
and Possehl will retain their established branding identities as well as their current business locations.
Using the 3M ACCR
overhead conductor, a transmission line carrying electricity through a congested portion of Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city, was upgraded by AES Eletropaulo to more than double its capacity without the need for larger towers or an expanded right of way.
Light-Weight Conductor Can Double Capacity but Leave Infrastructure Unchanged In Sensitive or Crowded Terrain; ACCR
Application Is 7th in South America
We are highly encouraged by today's presentation and these findings, as they represent an important step in demonstrating the promising therapeutic potential of PVS-30200," said Helen Marie Nugent, PhD, Co-Founder and Vice President, Research and Development at Pervasis and a co-author of the ACCR
