Prysmian Cables and Systems (formerly Pirelli Cables and Systems) is market leader and 'innovation driver' in all major energy and telecom cables business activities. The development of materials, designs and processes enables Prysmian to offer a wide range of standard and specialist products for highly diverse applications. Prysmian is also the leader in cable products for critical applications (resistance to extremely high temperatures, fire, mechanical stress, chemical agents and nuclear radiation).
Prysmian, formerly belonging to Pirelli, has for more than a century grown as a truly multinational corporation deeply rooted in all local markets throughout the world and has built upon his core sectors. It has achieved this position thanks to its geographical presence (52 plants in 21 countries and 5 continents); its outstanding human potential (more than 12,000 people); its solid financial position (a t/o of almost 3 bEuro in 2004) and its technical and managerial capability (thousands of intellectual property registrations since 1999). The marketing network covers more than 120 countries all over the world.
The Prysmian Group concentrates on constant product innovation and on achieving a competitive edge by focusing on research and development. This is done by Prysmian's own R&D teams and several institutions and, above all, with customers. Prysmian's goal is to always be the best partner to its customers. This is achieved by constantly working on technological, logistical and competitive excellence.
The mining world is no exeption to this. Prysmian's mining cable unit is active in creating new and better cables and cabling solutions as well as improving existing ones. Mining cables are mainly manufactured in Germany (Neustadt). There is innovation, know-how, experience in production and application and a strong and long tradition of keeping close contact with the mining customers.
Opencast and underground mining requires ever-increasing performance of machines and methods. This has led to the large machines in use today. On bucket wheel and dragline excavators, an installed power of more than 15MW and voltages of up to 35kV is no longer unusual.
These large movable machines require medium voltage flexible reeling and trailing cables for power supply and are suitable for operations under extreme conditions.
PROTOLON® and PROTOMONT® reeling and trailing cables for opencast and underground mining have been field proven worldwide for decades. In these mining applications, particular requirements such as mechanical strength and safety has led to the use of high-grade rubber materials.
Prysmian has developed extensive know-how over many years for opencast and underground mining with its special operational conditions.
The decisive factor was close cooperation with many significant mining companies. The experience gained continually contributed to the design of PROTOLON® and PROTOMONT® mining cables.
The high operational reliability and service life of Prysmian's reeling and trailing cables for mining is based on
