Bekaert’s presence in power cables
Our company plays a significant role in the energy market. We help our partners across the value chain to bring innovative solutions in offshore and onshore industry markets.
Our Bezinox® non-magnetic wire is an ideal solution for power cables for offshore wind farms as they eliminate armoring losses in the HVAC cables. Our galvanized austenitic stainless-steel wires reduce heat dissipation, moreover, protect the cables from crevice corrosion failures.

To support our partners in energy transmission and distribution, Bekaert offers high-tensile strength steel cores for overhead powerlines. Our Mega/Giga wire and strands provide unique above-standard strength already covered by the new IEC norm. This solution empowers the line designers with different possibilities for technically challenging projects like rivers, canyons, or fjord crossing. At the same time, it offers CAPEX or OPEX cost reduction for developers. By implementing Mega and Giga solutions for overhead powerlines, we contribute to lowering the CO2 footprint together.
