  • to maintain its leading position in the field of power cables by providing unbiased and neutral information on all essential cable aspects
  • to be recognized by the Electric Power Industry as a leading and reliable partner with competence in all engineering issues related to insulated cable systems, i.e. technical, economical, ecological and social
