120mm² XLPE Aluminium Wire

$ 4,329.00 NZD


We have a limited supply of 500m rolls of this wire and some shorter lengths in stock. Please contact us if you require a short length.

This wire is available on this website for the express purpose of providing cost effective wire (below RRP) to our clients buying or owning our hydro turbines. If you are interested in purchasing this wire (at RRP) but are not a hydro client please contact us for a price. We reserve the right to refuse sale of this wire if the client is not also a hydro client of ours.

This wire can be used in applications up to 600VDC or on ground ELV applications (in NZ) up to 120 VDC. It  has 1 x 120mm^2 conductor, it will typically be used on a hydro site that is 250 or 500m distant.

It is intended for long run ELV hydro applications through bush/forest and along water ways where burial or aerial protection is not practical. ELV cables only need conduit protection “as required”. This can be sleeving the cable in low cost 32mm LDPE pipe or PVC conduit to provide extra protection as may be required. 

Use our on online calculation tools to determine the cable loss on your site. Cable losses less than 10% are often acceptable.

Click here for a typical example of how this cable may be used on a 4.3kW hydro site to 250m away from the power shed (500m drum is used 2 x 250m cables).

It can also be used in LV applications in protective conduit subject to a COC, speak to your electrician prior to ordering for LV applications.

Each roll comes with two 120mm cable joiners and 2-pairs and 120mm bi-metal ends so that you can convert to copper for connection to your: breaker, fuse, PCE, copper tails, etc.

Rolls are bulky and heavy so cannot be sent in NZ by courier to your home address. The web site will determine the freight price to your nearest TNL truck depot for you to collect. When ordering drums of wire do not order with other smaller items that would normally go by courier. 

Note: if wiring your own system in NZ, you can do so for voltages up to 120 VDC (ELV) if you have suitable knowledge and experience. For LV systems (>120 VDC) this is prescribed electrical work and it must be done by a licenced electrician.
