Kersten Europe delivers the complete J-tube constructions for Riffgat High Voltage Station.

The latest generation of profile bending machines is used for bending the J-tubes. For the bellmouths, Kersten Europe cuts unfolded segments using plasma. The segments are rolled into cones of various dimensions and provided with welding edge preparations. The cones are welded together by using UP or Mig-Mag welding processes. A guiding ring is attached to the wide end of the bellmouth to secure a smooth transition for the cables to enter. The narrow end of the bellmouth is welded onto the J-tube.
