    Can you explain that description a little more? It sounds more insulated electrical wire. If that is 7 strand copper wire, each strand 2.5 mm˛, we could estimate the weight of copper, but I'm not sure how to estimate the insulation over it.

    Frankly, it would be easier to weigh a sample, measure its length and use weight per unit length to estimate 1493 m.

        It looks like it should be 7 strands totalling 2.5 mm˛. Is the diameter of the copper bundle (ignore the insulation) about 2 mm?
        If so. it should be about 22.7 kg/1000 m. I don't know to determine the weight of the insulation over it.
