About CTC Cable Corporation:
CTC Cable’s patented ACCC® conductor technology enables superior performance of high voltage transmission and distribution electrical grids. ACCC conductors use proven carbon fiber core produced at its Irvine, California headquarters for delivery to qualified conductor manufacturers who produce and distribute ACCC conductors to electrical grid customers worldwide. ACCC conductors significantly reduce thermal sag and allow increased capacity when compared to traditional conductors of similar diameter and weight. Therefore the more energy efficient ACCC conductor can replace traditional conductors resulting in increased performance and capacity. It is an ideal conductor for both upgrading existing power lines as well as building new lines since the technology allows for the reduction of the number of support structures and/or a reduction of their height.
Since its commercial introduction in 2005, ACCC® conductor has been selected for approximately 11,000 kilometers (6,835 miles) in over 170 projects in all environmental and operating conditions. ACCC® is a registered trademark of CTC Cable Corporation.
