We provide comprehensive electrical cable services for low, medium, and high voltage (Up to 132kV), transmission, and distribution systems. Our broad experience working with public utilities, municipalities, and independent developers makes us uniquely qualified to meet the challenges of your transmission or distribution project. We specialize in providing fast, reliable grid connections. SS Trading is always up for a good challenge. Over the years, we have built our expertise and capability through low, medium to high voltage cable construction, upgrade, and maintenance projects. Our customers span over industrial and commercial businesses, developers, public utilities, wind farms, and municipalities. We offer project and site management services and manage, monitor, and control projects from the start to the handover. Our proactive project and site managers provide leadership while monitoring and reporting HSE&Q, time, cost, quality and take responsibility for the hiring of equipment and subcontractors. We cover all aspects of civil and electrical requirements on an underground cable network project and have a wealth of experience on a wide range of cable projects. SS Trading manages many operational and maintenance contracts with unique requirements, which can be because of factors such as operational constraints and security of supply. From cable network supply and installation to managing the integrity of the system and life cycle, we have extensive experience in providing cost-effective solutions that ensure the reliability of the electrical supply while delivering economies to the site. Our cable network civil and electrical installation and construction services provide integrated LV (Low Voltage) / MV (Medium Voltage) / HV (High Voltage) electrical cable installations, including terminations, jointing, testing, and commissioning. Our highly experienced and competent engineering team is highly qualified and trained electrical specialists with experience ranging from 10 to 30 years. We deliver a wide range of services in-house, ensuring cost-effective engineering solutions, and the delivery of an on-time and safe cable construction project. Our services include the installation of new cables, the refurbishment, replacement of existing underground cable networks, and general civil engineering. Customer care is at the forefront of our business and shapes the way we plan, deliver and commission our projects. We actively promote collaboration and innovation internally and throughout our supply chain, to reduce client’s overall costs while securing the company’s future. The company enjoys repeat business from our clients, focusing strongly on safety, quality, and customer care.

CABLES & OVERHEAD CONDUCTORS: The role of electricity has become more significant in today’s society; electricity distribution has to be reliable and there should be no outages . Furthermore, ageing of networks is an issue that has to be taken into account. Underground cabling will be one of the basic elements in renovation of rural area overhead (OH) line distribution networks. Cabling improves network reliability and has an impact on the outage costs ; as a result, the lifetime costs and thereby the total costs of the network are reduced. The Cable and Overhead Conductor network has the highest impact on reliability in electricity distribution , because more than 80 % of the customer-experienced outages are caused by these Networks. The Overhead Conductor Networks are less expensive than the Underground Cable Networks, but is more exposed to faults in comparison with underground cable networks. 70%+ of Underground Cable Networks are Copper because of the smaller size of cables required as in comparison with aluminium cables for the same current capacity requirements and also copper is a much better conductor of electricity than aluminium. Unfortunately copper is also highly in demand amongst criminals. Common faults on cable / overhead conductor networks causing power failures are: 1 . 3rd party interferences (Criminals steal / vandalise Cables / Conductors) 2 . People / Service Providers digging on cable trenches damaging underground services 3 . These days a lot of other services are also installed next or on top of existing services, during installation existing services can be damaged. 4 . Underground cable / Overhead Conductor networks are more than often overloaded because of illegal connections and uncontrolled / undetected energy consumption which damage the cables and prematurely end the useful lifespan of the cable / overhead conductor. 5 . Poorly installed networks, especially underground cables 6 . No preventative maintenance programs to detect early signs of pre-mature failures etc. 7 . Natural Ageing of networks 8 . Degradation of the cable sheath: There are several reasons why the sheathing material may degrade, including excessive heat or cold, chemicals, weather conditions, and abrasion of the sheath. All of these factors can ultimately cause electrical failure as the insulated cores are no longer protected by the sheathing as originally designed. 9 . Heating of cable: Excessive heating of the cable will cause degradation of the insulation and sheathing material and premature failure. The heat may come from an external source or may be generated by the resistance to current flow in the conductor - a particular problem if the cable is overloaded and/or underrated for the application. 1 0 . Electrical Overloading: Electrical overloading normally occurs when the cable is underrated for the application or when too much load is being placed on the cable. 1 1 . Poor Quality Products PROTECTION & MONITORING: Our Monitoring & Management Software system focus on Prevention, it is our goal to ensure that possible damages / theft etc. to cables / overhead conductors and underground services are early detected before they actually occur.
