Prysmian Group and Nanocomp Technologies announce technology cooperation agreement

June 6, 2017 - Prysmian Group, a company in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, and Nanocomp Technologies, a U.S. company specialised in the production of carbon nanotube-based products and materials, have signed a technology cooperation agreement aimed at testing and improving the use of these technologies in power transmission, power distribution, telecom networks, control and instrumentation applications.

The firms have also agreed to evaluate, at a later stage of the project, whether to commence large-scale production of products and technologies developed as part of this research. The interest of the two companies is driven by the potential offered by Nanocomp’s Miralon carbon nanotube’s intrinsic characteristics in terms of mechanical resistance, chemical inertness, degree of flexibility, and electrical and heat conductivity.

Partnerships with universities around the world and advanced research centres are key to Prysmian’s R&D activities. By signing this agreement, the Group confirms its focus on innovation, centred not only on the development and improvement of its core business, but also on new technologies and materials.
