Drum handling, return, evaluation

A cable is a valuable product. The cable transportation package is usually a drum. The battens on the drum seem thick enough to remain unbroken. But, with a cable weighing more than 4 tons, it becomes very vulnerable. If the handling is done correctly, the drum will protect the cable from transportation damages. If the drum is damaged, the cable can also be damaged. The damage might not be discovered until after installation, when repairs can be extremely expensive. The purpose of below documents is to tell you how damages can be avoided by correct drum handling.

In addition, Prysmian Group is heavily committed to maximising the re-utilisation of drums and lowering their environmental impact. Our Sustainability Scorecard includes an indicator “Percentage of drums (tonnes) reused during the year” so we constantly review this important objective in order to increase the volume of re-used wooden drums with the aim of reducing the carbon footprint of transport operations.
