 Completing Deadends in the Air a First in Vietnam


Power Construction Company 2 (PCC2) and Vietnam Technique Development Co, Ltd (VTD) recently completed the sixth installation of ACCC conductor in Vietnam using 248 mm^2 (470 kcmil) Glasgow size ACCC conductor on the double circuit Linh Trung - Thu Duc Bac 110 KV line for the Ho Chi Minh City High Voltage Network Company.


This project was also a milestone for installation techniques in Vietnam.  VTD supervisors and CTC Global certified Master Installers utilized a more efficient and accurate way of installing dead-ends by completing the process in the air at the interface of the insulators and lattice structures. The procedure saves substantial time and simplifies conductor handling.


This project is one of more than 325 ACCC installations in 30 countries. The ACCC conductor for this project was manufactured by KMI Wire and Cable of Indonesia, one of the 19 qualified suppliers of ACCC conductor worldwide.

Overview of ACCC Conductor Training, Installation and Operating Experience




Free Design Software
CTC Global created CCP to help system planners and engineers compare the ampacity, line losses, thermal and ice load sag, and economic aspects of nearly any conductor type and size, so the numerous advantages of the ACCC? conductor can be fully realized. The user simply selects the conductor types and sizes from drop down menus and enters the appropriate values & assumptions highlighted in the yellow boxes. The program is fully functional and uses standard industry formulas (such as IEEE 738-2006). Outputs are readily comparable to Sag10?, PLS CADD? and other similar programs.
ACCC Conductor


Why Over 100 International Utilities Have Selected ACCC

  • High Capacity
  • Low Sag
  • High Strength
  • Fatigue Resistant
  • Corrosion Resistant
  • Excellent Self Damping
  • Easy to Install
  • Great for Long Spans
  • Very Tough
  • Extensively Proven
  • Excellent for N-1 Conditions
  • Lower Line Losses


The ACCC Conductor's added aluminum content (without a weight or diameter penalty) allows it to run cooler under any load condition which translates into reduced line losses. Reduced line losses can save fuel, emissions and generation capacity.


The Bottom Line:

In more than 325 cases, the ACCC conductor has provided more than 130 utilities the best economic solution for their specific project needs.
