LS Cable replaces $5 million worth of Zambian power linesLS Cable, the nation’s largest cable manufacturer, said yesterday it supplied $5 million worth of power lines to Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation (Zesco), a state-run power generator in Zambia.
The company said the cables were used to replace old wires near the nation’s capital, Lusaka.
The affiliate of LS Group said that it supplied a gap conductor cable, which can deliver twice as much power without changing transmission towers or power generators.
About five companies in the world have developed a similar product, but LS Cable is the only domestic company.
LS Cable hopes the Zambia deal will help it win other projects in Africa. It has held seminars in Kenya, Zimbabwe and Uganda to promote its products.
