VTL has setup a new solar power cable plant in the same existing facility of power and telecom cables. The new plant has a state- of-the- art machinery, supplied by the industry leaders. VTL uses raw materials sourced from world renowned suppliers.
As the Solar power is an absolute green & clean form of the energy, the government is giving a lot of emphasis in the growth of solar sector. The Solar cable is one of the most important component in any Solar Power project as it carries the energy generated by the solar cells and transmits to the grid.
These cables are designed for connecting photovoltaic power supply and can be used in flexible & fixed installations for indoor / outdoor usage with high mechanical strength under extreme weather conditions.
