LS Cable & System has signed a contract with Siemens to supply US$ 4 million worth of bus ducts for the Yamal LNG project in Russia.
Bus ducts are long rectangular assemblies used for transmitting electricity in high-rise buildings, apartments and factories that require large power capacity.
In 2013, Siemens won the right to supply electrical products for the Yamal project, and invited tenders for bus ducts. LS Cable & System won the contract to supply the bus ducts for two years, starting in 2015.
Ordinary bus ducts are resistant to temperatures down to -15ºC. LS Cable & System improved their performance to withstand temperatures as low as -55ºC in order to sell them for projects in extremely cold regions, such as the Yamal Peninsula of Northwest Siberia. In addition to this temperature resistance, the bus ducts can also resist humidity and oil, making them ideal for oil and gas industry.
"LS Cable & System has supplied this product with recognised quality to oil drilling sites in Australia since 2012. We are persevering to develop overseas markets for this high-value added product specialised for marine and offshore applications, wind power generators and general buildings," commented Heon-Sang Lee, Director of the Overseas Business Division of LS Cable & System.
