Alcon Marepha manufactures a variety of different types of aluminium overhead conductors, ranging from 7 to 61 strands. The conductors are made in accordance with international and local standards.

Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced (ACSR)

Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced (ACSR) are used in areas with less corrosive effects but can be greased to improve corrosion resistance.

All Aluminium Conductors (AAC) and All Aluminium Alloy Conductors (AAAC)

All Aluminium Conductors (AAC) and All Aluminium Alloy Conductors (AAAC) are used in aggressive corrosion environments. AAAC conductors are normally supplied greased for additional protection against corrosion. AAAC conductors are used where longer spans are needed as the tensile strength is higher than AAC conductors. The current carrying capacity of the AAAC conductor is slightly lower than that of the AAC conductor for the same dimensions.


The standard drum lengths for ACSR conductors are 1000m, 1500m, 2000m and 3000m. The standard drum lengths for AAC and AAAC conductors are 1000m, 1500m and 3000m, but other lengths can be manufactured to suit specific requirements. Note the minimum order length is 1000m.
