SEOUL, May 09 (AJU PRESS) - Korea's Taihan Cable & Solution is showcasing around 30 technologies and products, including an innovative solution to replace outdated power grids, at a U.S. industry show.

The Korean power cable maker is among about 660 companies from 60 countries participating in the biennial IEEE PES T&D Conference and Exposition, the largest exhibition for the power and energy industry in the U.S., currently underway in Anaheim, California, from May 6 to 9 (local time).

At the forefront of Taihan's offerings is the Traverse Guide Puller system, which the company claims to be ideal for replacing outdated power grids in busy urban construction sites.

Unlike traditional methods that require heavy equipment and occupy three street lanes, its technology only needs two lanes, minimizing traffic disruption and construction time.

The company said the system enables the replacement of outdated cables with high-capacity transmission cables without altering the existing conduits. Taihan holds patents for the technology in the U.S., Australia, and Korea.

Taihan sees vast opportunities for growth in the U.S., where over half of underground power grids exceed 40 years in age. Currently, the Traverse Guide Puller system is used in a project to replace aging power cables that link New York's power grid with the John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Taihan also exhibited offshore wind power solutions and high-voltage direct current transmission cable (HVDC), which can send large amounts of electrical power over long distances with minimal loss.

"We will focus on marketing our solutions for aging power grids to solidify our position as a major supplier in the power and cable sector in the U.S.," Taihan said in a press release.
