CTC Global Retains CSI For Michigan Territory
CSI Utility Sales, a manufacturers representative headquartered in Grand Ledge, is pleased to announce our representation of CTC Global for the state of Michigan.
CTC Global, headquartered in Irvine, CA provides cost-effective conductor solutions that can double the capacity of congested transmission lines, with little to no tower modifications. How do they do this? Their highly-efficient / high-capacity ACCC® conductor uses approximately 28% more aluminum than other conductors of the same diameter and weight. The added aluminum content reduces conductor resistance and line losses under any operating condition compared to any other conductor of the same diameter and weight. The hybrid carbon and glass fiber composite core has a very low coefficient of thermal expansion which allows increased current at higher operating temperatures with very little thermal sag.
Recognizing the enormous challenge of increasing transmission line capacity, mitigating thermal sag, and improving conductor efficiency, CTC Global began developing the patented ACCC® conductor in 2002. The objective was to develop a conductor that could be used to upgrade existing transmission corridors without structural modifications. This objective relied on the incorporation of highly evolved aerospace technology and materials science to create a new higher-strength, lighter-weight core that could incorporate additional conductive aluminum without a weight or diameter penalty, and be utilized to reduce thermal sag, increase spans between fewer structures, carry more current, reduce line losses and improve grid reliability.
