Used by electric utilities on transmission lines with the voltage of 35 kV and higher for creating optical communication lines and protecting the power lines from lightning strikes.
Applied for aerial installation on distribution and power transmission lines for building long distance optical communication systems.
Used for distributed fiber optic sensing in different applications.
Used for indoor and outdoor applications where fire resistance is a must. Remain functional under direct flame for at least 180 minutes.
Applied in ducts, conduits and trays with no risk of rodent attacks. Can also be lashed.
Designed for high reliability in harsh environments with potential mechanical impact. Applied in all ground types, swamps, and harsh rivers.
Designed for air blowing in ducts and microducts for building reliable underground communication networks.
Designed for underwater application with increased crush and tensile loads.

Used for cost-effective one-step aerial installation mostly in rural areas where the spans between poles are not long .
Applied in substations for control purposes.
Used to create communication lines between the common distribution box and a location inside the building (including vertical runs), between entrances or corridors in office buildings.
Applied for aerial installation on transmission towers, lightning poles, between buildings and structures for communication networks in rural areas.

Incab America will provide OPGW and ADSS to PacifiCorp’s current Gateway West project to build and operate 2,000 miles of new transmission lines in Wyoming and Idaho. We recently welcomed representatives from PacifiCorp to view our facility and equipment to verify Incab America’s qualifications to supply OPGW to their Gateway West project. This visit included a facility walk-through, testing demonstrations, and certification presentations. Incab America welcomes prospective customers to inquire about a facility tour to ensure quality of cable and manufacturing processes.
About PacifiCorp and Gateway West Project
PacifiCorp is the largest grid operator in the western United States, they serve the growing energy needs of 2 million customers while protecting the environment. PacifiCorp’s business units are leaders in providing safe, reliable, and sustainable low-cost power.
In May 2007, PacifiCorp launched the Energy Gateway Transmission Expansion – a multi-year investment plan to add approximately 2,000 miles of new transmission lines across the West. The Gateway West project is jointly proposed by the company and Idaho Power to build and operate approximately 1,000 miles of new high-voltage transmission lines in Wyoming and Idaho. This project will include seven expanded or new substations and will enable access to existing and new generating resources, including wind, delivering electricity from these sources to customers.
