The Hydramaxx Chain Trenchers are the preferred machines for installing the Electrical Cabling on Wind and Solar farms. The rubber tires and our custom cable installation boxes give our trenchers the unique ability to lay the cable to the engineering specification and move rapidly between end and start points. Port Industries has numerous cable boxes and cable guide systems to prevent damage to the electrical cables and improve the productivity of the installation crew. We have cable boxes and cable guides for plows and wheel trenchers as well.

Hydramaxx 2520

The 2520 shown on the left is the most sought-after machine for electrical cable installation on Wind Farms.

Port Industries manufactures, rents, sells, and services all Hydramaxx wind farm trenchers and plows. Hydramaxx trenchers and plows are designed for one pass installation of electrical cable, conduit, ground wire, and caution tape. Over the past 10 years we have perfected top load and side load installation methods. Port Industries works closely with our renewable energy customers to determine which installation method and lay box option works best. We base the design on each collection system’s unique requirements regarding cable spacing and backfill/compaction coverage. Port Industries lay boxes use well engineered internal designs and components to ensure cable installation will be achieved without cable damage. Whether you are plowing in cable, or require an open ditch, Port Industries has the equipment, guide arms, and lay boxes to meet any collection systems specific requirements.
