Nexans supplies control and power cables for KTX-II trains

Cable specialist Nexans has won a €3.5m (£4.5m) contract to manufacture and supply specialised rolling stock cables to Hyundai Rotem for 10 high-speed train sets it is manufacturing for Korail, the national railway operator for South Korea.

The cables supplied are part of Nexans’ Flamex range and include control and power cables. The first cable sets will be delivered at the end of 2012, with the project expected to reach completion in the next two years.

The KTX-II trains will operate on South Korea’s Honam Line.
