A relatively large number of cables are buried underground. This means many people will be involved with (underground) power cables professionally, and that associated knowledge is a key requirement. This basic course, Power Cables in General, covers all the relevant aspects relating to power cables – not always down to a detailed level (specialized courses are available for this purpose), but especially in a related context. This means the course provides a good overview of all the elements that are of interest, as well as the options available for approaching or solving certain problems.

For more information and to register, please refer to the leaflet and registration form. 

This course is part of a series of five on underground power cables. Supplementary to this general three-day course, four in-depth two-day courses have been developed, providing more detailed information on the following topics:

The entire series of courses will be run from 23-27 June and 10-13 November in Arnhem (the Netherlands) as well. For more information please click here. On request, DNV GL can also provide an in-house training course in English or Dutch (content, location and duration of the course can be adapted to the client’s wishes). Please contact us for more information.
