Calc

Formula for calculation of copper surcharge

Copper weight (kg/km) x (DEL + 1% purchasing costs – copper basis): 100 = copper surcharge in Euro/km

Example:

KAWEFLEX® 3130 4 G 1,5 mm2
DEL 540,00 Euro/100 kg
Cu-Basis 150,00 Euro/100 kg
Cu-Zahl 60 kg/km


60 kg/km x (540,00 + 5,4 – 150,00) : 100 = 237,24 Euro/km

Assuming a DEL quotation of Euro 540,00, this amount would be the copper surcharge for 1 km of KAWEFLEX® 3130 4 G 1,5 mm2. The copper surcharge is normally shown separately on all invoices.

Guide

The price of copper

Cables are marketed at day copper prices (DEL). The DEL is the stock-market quotation for German Electrolytic Copper for conductor purposes, i.e., 99.5 % pure copper. The DEL is stated in Euro per 100 kg. It can be found in the Business section of the daily newspapers, under the heading "Commodities Market".

Example:
DEL 161,40 signifies: 100 kg copper (Cu) costs 161,40 Euro
1% purchasing costs must be added to the day's quotation for cables.

 

The copper basis

A portion of the price of copper is already contained in the list price of a large proportion of cables. It, too, is stated in Euro per 100 kg.
• Euro 150,00/100 kg for most cables
• Euro 100,00/100 kg for telephone cables
• Euro 000,00/100 kg for e.g. earthing cables (e.g. NYY power cables), i.e., hollow price

 

Copper weight

The copper index is the "copper weight" of a cable (it is stated for every item in the catalogue).

Beispiel:
KAWEFLEX® 3130 4 G 1,5 mm2
Copper weight as per catalogue 60 kg/km
The copper contained in 1 km of cable therefore weights 60 kg.

 

Formula for calculation of copper surcharge

Copper weight (kg/km) x (DEL + 1% purchasing costs – copper basis): 100 = copper surcharge in Euro/km

Example:

KAWEFLEX® 3130 4 G 1,5 mm2
DEL 540,00 Euro/100 kg
Cu base 150,00 Euro/100 kg
Cu weight 60 kg/km


60 kg/km x (540,00 + 5,4 – 150,00) : 100 = 237,24 Euro/km

Assuming a DEL quotation of Euro 540,00, this amount would be the copper surcharge for 1 km of KAWEFLEX® 3130 4 G 1,5 mm2. The copper surcharge is normally shown separately on all invoices.
