Aluminium wins gold award

Monday, 02 March, 2009


Heliax 2.0 FXL, the aluminium RF cable manufactured by Andrew, has won the Golden Award for Green Communication Energy-Efficiency Technology in an industry contest held in China.

Andrew was one of two companies to win the gold award for green innovation in the Third Competition for Outstanding Information Application Developments, organised by the China Information Industry Net, the Chinese media agency affiliated with the China Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

The award was presented for distinguished contributions in developing cutting-edge technologies that enable telecom operators to boost energy efficiency, reduce operating costs and improve profitability.

The cable uses lighter weight aluminium as the electrical conduit of the cable’s outer conductor. Compared with traditional all-copper cables, it is more energy efficient, durable and has greater flexibility.

It requires less electrical power and fuel to manufacture and transport, and conforms to the European Union’s RoHS and China’s RoHS SJ/T 11364-2006 directives.

In 2008, FXL transmission cable lines were installed in the Ministry of Environmental Protection Building, Beijing’s latest landmark building and the workplace for implementation and management of the international environmental protection treaty in China.

The building has become a paragon of energy efficiency and environmental friendliness due to its incorporation of technologies in building materials, air conditioning, natural lighting, and solar energy application.
