Spanish term or phrase: cable de fuerza
Hi again,
Cable de fuerza is in this sentence:

Este tunel vertical sirve igualmente de conducto para los cables de fuerza.

The translation is about a hydorelectric power station in Colombia and they are referring to the elevator shaft that is also used ...see above!
Thanks

Explanation:
My colleague may be right, but sometimes the obvious is the best solution. These could be the power cables going up to the lift control room on the roof. They commonly do follow the shaft.
