Roxtec completes work on Deeside-to-Dublin power line

Roxtec, a manufacturer of cable and pipe seals, has completed a €300m project for the EirGrid East-West Interconnector Project to supply electricity between north Wales and Dublin.

The project has the capacity to power up to 350,000 British or Irish homes, according to Roxtec UK managing director, Graham O’Hare. It is the first to use 200kV for this specific kind of cable.

Roxtec’s electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) penetration seals have been specified for the sub-stations offering protection against water, fire, dust and electromagnetic interference.
