Alukaflex AD8

For projects in water

Alukaflex AD8 – flexible aluminum cable,

designed especially for projects in water

To meet the demands from a growing market within solar projects DanCables have designed Alukaflex AD8. A flexible aluminum cable  which can be submerged in water. Solar parks take up a lot of space and often meet a lot of resistance from surrounding neighbors. Therefore, it can be an advantage to place dem on water where it’s possible. Alukaflex AD8 allowed presence of water is 150 meters so it’s a very versatile cable. Another advantage with floating solar panels is the presence of water. It exerts a cooling effect, which improves the performance of the panels by 5-10%.

Alukaflex AD8 is perfect for a lot of different projects where water can be present. The conductor is made of flexible high-quality aluminum. It has an excellent bending radius when fixed installed so it’s easy to handle and work with.
