Nexans has opened a new cable harness production facility in the city of Tianjin, China.
The 3000-square-metre facility will increase Nexans’ production capacity in the country and will manufacture a wide range of cable products and solutions for the wind industry.
Each product will go through six stages of control from raw material to finished goods, Nexans said.
Solutions produced at the facility will include M12 sensor cables, valve connectors and customised solutions specific to turbine manufacturers' needs.
Nexans executive vice president of industry solutions and projects Julien Hueber said “It’s an exciting time for wind power in China.
“The country’s wind sector is currently the same size as the rest of the world combined – and it continues to grow as the country commits to reducing its CO2 emissions.
“Furthermore, the falling cost of wind power, efficiency increases, and attractive policies are expected to boost growth even further.
“One of Nexans’ top priorities is to electrify the future by connecting the world’s renewable energy sources to ensure electricity supplies are secure, reliable, and efficient.
“Our new facility means Nexans is perfectly positioned to help local original equipment manufacturers drive China’s wind power revolution as more wind turbines are built in the country.”
