Linking power and control to demanding mining applications

When it comes to the specialized needs and extremely harsh environment of the surface and underground mining industries, Prysmian Group offers the optimal solution.

 

We provide a full range of products suitable for both fixed installations and movable equipment. Our mining and tunneling cables offer significant benefits to a broad variety of specialized mining professionals such as OEMs, contractors, installers, mining companies and more. The high performance of special flexible mining cables is a result of continuous cooperation between mining companies and Prysmian’s R&D teams.

The advantage of Prysmian’s decades of experience and expertise in mining cable technology continues to provide practical benefits over the entire life cycle of cable engineered specifically for mining applications. Better design and construction, utilizing industry standard materials and process technology, provides the most reliable performance over the life of the cable, resulting in the lowest cost per ton.

Prysmian’s mining cables feature:

  • Longer lifetime
  • Chemical and climate resistance
  • Exceptional reliability
  • Customized and multifunctional engineering
  • The smallest possible dimensions
  • Repair services
  • Exceptional safety level

Prysmian’s mining cables are manufactured in accordance with the following industry standards:

  • ICEA S75-381 Portable and Power Feeder Cables for use in mines and similar applications
  • CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 96 Portable Power Cables, and certified by Energy, Mines and Resources Canada
  • CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 96.1 Mine Power Feeder Cables
  • Mine Safety and Health Administration flame test requirements and accepted for listing by MSHA

Regardless of the application, Prysmian can provide the best-performance, best-fit and best-cost solution for any mining application.

 

 

When it comes to reliability and performance in a mining cable, one name stands alone. Anaconda Brand is the industry standard for toughness, flexibility and extremely long life.

 

For mining applications that require flexibility and resistance to temperature extremes, oil, chemicals, moisture and abrasion, Prysmian offers industrial cord products that meet or exceed the requirements of OSHA, MSHA and other relevant industry standards including UL and CSA.

Cables for Underground and Surface Mining

Type W cables are non-shielded, 2 kV flexible portable power cables with full size ground conductors (in constructions above 2C) for use in industrial and mining applications. Type W cables come in flat constructions that resist crushing and minimize kinking for applications where cables will see high degrees of flexing and twisting, as well as round constructions ideal for use with mobile mining equipment as they are easy to handle, move and relocate. They are available with tinned copper conductors for enhanced flex life and increased resistance to wire breakage for applications that require repetitive movement, as well as bare copper ground conductors for a cost-effective solution in applications where the cable is not being subjected to repetitive movement.

Type G and G-GC cables are non-shielded, 2 kV flexible portable power cables with ground wires for each conductor. Additionally, Type G-GC cables include a “ground check” wire that provides fail-safe ground monitoring for maximum safety. Type G and G-GC cables come in flat constructions that resist crushing and minimize kinking for applications where cables will see high degrees of flexing and twisting, as well as round constructions ideal for use with mobile mining equipment as they are easy to handle, move and relocate. They are available with tinned copper conductors for enhanced flex life and increased resistance to wire breakage for applications that require repetitive movement, as well as bare copper conductors for a cost-effective solution in applications where the cable is not being subjected to repetitive movement.

Type SHD-GC cables are shielded, heavy-duty portable power cables offered in voltages of 2 kV up to 35 kV designed for use as trailing cables on AC mining equipment where a ground-check conductor is required for fail-safe monitoring and where induced voltages in the grounding system will not produce a hazard. Additionally, they can be used for low- and medium-voltage AC circuits where shielding is desired or required. Our SHD-GC cables feature a reinforced, two-layer, extra-heavy-duty, lead-cured Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) jacket. For maximum shield flex life, they come with Tinned Copper/Textile Composite Braid Shielding. SHD-GC cables are available with tinned copper conductors for enhanced flex life and increased resistance to wire breakage for applications that require repetitive movement, as well as bare copper conductors for a cost-effective solution in applications where the cable is not being subjected to repetitive movement.

Type MP-GC cables are shielded power cables offered in voltages of 5 kV up to 35 kV intended for relatively stationary installation in underground, aerial, duct or direct burial applications. These round mining-grade power feeder cables are easy to handle. The heavy-duty single layer jacket provides mechanical protection and increased resistance to abrasion, cutting, tear and torsion.

Tunneling Cables

Type SHD-GC cables are shielded, heavy-duty portable power cables offered in voltages of 2 kV up to 25 kV designed for use as trailing cables on AC mining equipment where a ground-check conductor is required for fail-safe monitoring and where induced voltages in the grounding system will not produce a hazard. Additionally, they can be used for low- and medium-voltage AC circuits where shielding is desired or required. Our SHD-GC cables feature a reinforced, two-layer, extra-heavy-duty, lead-cured Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) jacket. For maximum shield flex life, they come with Tinned Copper/Textile Composite Braid Shielding. SHD-GC cables are available with tinned copper conductors for enhanced flex life and increased resistance to wire breakage for applications that require repetitive movement, as well as bare copper conductors for a cost-effective solution in applications where the cable is not being subjected to repetitive movement.

When faced with aggressive environments and high-mechanical stresses, cable manufacturers have traditionally protected their cables with a lead sheath and metal armor that increase the weight of the cable and reduce the installation flexibility.

Prysmian’s Mining and Tunneling cables offer significant benefits to a broad variety of specialized mining professionals such as OEMs, specifiers, contractors, installers, mining companies and more. The product range also incorporates cables for use in all type of infrastructures within the mining industry (e.g., power supply, site headquarters, lighting systems, etc.).
