Roxtec provides pipe and cable sealing for Aughinish Alumina
Published: 22 May 2020 - Rachael Morling
has supplied Europe’s largest alumina refinery with a range of pipe and cable sealing solutions. The company was chosen to provide Aughinish Alumina, one of the world’s most technologically advanced and energy efficient alumina refineries, with transit systems to support the creation and upgrading of cable entries into new and existing substations at the business’ refinery facility in County Limerick, Ireland.
Ronan Mills, Roxtec market manager for Ireland, said the transits involved are specifically designed for use underground, creating watertight and airtight seals where cables enter the refinery’s substations. As well as protecting expensive switchgear against water ingress, the seals will also prevent rodents and other small creatures entering substations at cable entry points.
