Background The Taishan Nuclear Power Project is a joint venture between EDF and China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group, it is the second nuclear power station to be built using Areva’s 1,750 megawatt EPR and it is the second time Areva has used Ellis’ products to secure electrical cables at a nuclear plant. Our first specification for Areva was for its OL3 reactor in Finland in 2009, and was secured as a result of our proven technical expertise and excellent industrial references.
Emperor Cable Cleat The Emperor Cable Cleat is designed for use where the highest levels of short circuit withstand are required, Ellis’ Emperor cable cleats are available for both trefoil and single cable applications.
All products in the range are manufactured in type 316L stainless steel, meaning they provide ultimate corrosion protection, even in the harshest of environments. The benefits of the Emperor cleats also extend to a patented design, which makes installation quick and easy, and an integral LSF zero halogen polymeric liner and base pad that protects and cushions cables during short circuit
ProTect Cable Strap Ellis’ ProTect cable straps, which are manufactured out of 316L stainless steel, are designed for installation between trefoil cleats, such as Emperors. They not only enhance short circuit capabilities, but help to retain trefoil formation and, because they allow for greater fixing distances between cleats, can reduce installation time and cost.
