Video Footage Of The World’s Largest Floating Solar Farm

Built on the QE2 reservoir, near London’s Heathrow Airport, this solar farm has a peak output of 6.3 megawatts and is expected to generate 5.8 million kilowatt hours in its first year – equivalent to the annual consumption of around 1,800 homes.

Due to the typical fast track nature of solar farms, ETS played a vital role during the construction phase by delivering relevant products, such as MV terminations on a same day basis helping to ensure that the project was completed in time and operational in March this year.

The energy generated by this farm will be used to power nearby water treatment plants operated by Thames Water who are aiming to self-generate a third of their own energy by 2020. The video is supplied courtesy of Lightsource Renewable Energy who delivered this ambitious project and were responsible for installation of 23,000 plus solar panels.

Ellis No Bolts Cleat

ETS Cable Components are proud to be part of the development and subsequent launch of a new range of cleats which requires no conventional fixings to supporting steel-work.

The design also allows for additional cleats to be stacked on top of one another with nothing more than a small turn of a unique fixing lock.

Nexans Euromold 430TB Installation Video

This installation video provides instructions on the correct cable preparation procedure and installation of 430TB elbow connectors.


Emperor Cable Cleat Short-Circuit Test

This video clip demonstrates the strength of our Emperor trefoil cleats under short-circuit conditions.

A short-circuit of 59kA RMS (118kA peak) is passed down the three-phase arrangement for a period of 0.1 seconds, showing the cables being forced apart by the physical forces present under such conditions and demonstrating the need for correct cable restraint.


LSF Cable Gland Shroud Comparison

This video shows two different kinds of cable gland shrouds being put under a flame test. One shroud is an imported LSF version the other is a genuine CMP LSF gland shroud.


Heat Shrink Vs Cold Shrink Cable Joints

The debate between Heat Shrink and Cold Shrink has always been split. We don’t believe that one method is more superior to the other, but each have their own benefits and suit different installations.

The video compares Heat Shrink and Cold Shrink cable jointing procedures, showing how to carry out each method.


Alpha Trefoil Cable Cleat Short-Circuit Test

This video shows our popular Alpha trefoil cleat undergoing short-circuit testing to and four different fault levels, comparing these results with similar test where the cables are restrained with cable ties.

Fault levels tested, with cables cleated every 600mm:

  • 30kA RMS
  • 35kA RMS
  • 40kA RMS
  • 45kA RMS

Ideally suitable for all commercial and industrial applications and fast becoming the industry leader in securing single-core cables in trefoil formation, the Alpha is suitable for installations where modest levels of short-circuit protection capability are required.


Stainless Steel Cable Ties Short-Circuit Test

This video shows the same short-circuit (59kA RMS) passed down a similar cable arrangement, but fastened with stainless steel cables ties and aptly demonstrates the need for using the correct cable cleat for your application.


Emperor Trefoil Cable Cleat – (Short Circuit 118kA)

This video clip demonstrates the strength of the Ellis Patents Emperor trefoil cleats under short-circuit conditions.

A short-circuit of 59kA RMS (118kA peak) is passed down the three-phase arrangement for a period of 0.1 seconds, showing the cables being forced apart by the physical forces present under such conditions and demonstrating the need for correct cable restraint.
