Overview

Non-buried power assets such as substations, transformers or overhead lines are exposed to wildlife and environmental related damages. Increasing safety and reliability while reducing outages and preserving wildlife is a challenge for utility companies. 

Our Medium Voltage Conductor Covers are designed to protect energized conductors from flashovers due to contact from birds and other wildlife.

They are made from a non-tracking red or grey silicon material that is suitable for harsh medium voltage outdoor environments. MVCC covers are split for easy installation.

MVCC is suitable for applications up to 25 kV phase to ground. Currently, four sizes are available and will fit conductors with diameters up to 1.75”. The covers are flexible and can be installed on tight bends which is ideal for substation applications.

TE has a full range of solutions to improve the safety and the reliability of your network.
