KBLI has 2 superb products that will help them sail and ride the 35 GW project wave.
AC3 and ACSR are the 2 kind of medium voltage alumunium cable that PLN mostly used for 35 GW projects. AC3 and ACSR used for high voltage transmission lines ( or SUTET ). AC3 has.
AC3 price is higher than ACSR since it can transmit electric power two times higher as compared with conventional conductor. For your information, both AC3 and ACSR cost a more than one million per meter.
Have you ever seen this kind of SUTET lines which used ACSR cable ?
This curving down SUTET lines are often considered as a danger for people who lives around it. High voltage burden expanding the cable, thus pushed it down closer to the land.
That’s why KBLI came with AC3 product which has double transmit electric power, and as a result the cable wouldn’t expand too much like ACSR cable did. In other words, AC3 is a “high capacity and low sag” cable.
For your information, both AC3 and ACSR cost a more than one million per meter.
Furthermore, when PLN do a maintenance (replacing old transmission cable every 15-20 years), if they used AC3, they could just replace the cable without replacing the towers, while if they used ACSR even it costs cheaper than AC3, they need to replace the towers too.
Next year, this kind of high voltage copper cable would also sees increasing demand next year and it gave KBLI big chunk of high margin.
N2XK2CY (wow I feel like I am technician) is a high voltage copper cable that will used by PLN as a so called “SUTET” inside a city. We all know how dangerous living near SUTET, that’s why with N2CK2CY cable, all SUTET which used to be above our head, would goes down under our feet (yes, inside the soil).
KBLI guided this new product will see increasing demand starting next year.
