Submarine Cable Products for Oil and Gas Industry
General Cable has been manufacturing underwater cables since 1899, when NSW began operations in Germany. General Cable is one of the world’s leading names of submarine power and telecommunication cable systems as well as for offshore and special cables.
General Cable range of medium and low-voltage cables have met the needs of the oil and gas industry for many years. The manufacturing plants located in Europe have supplied cables for offshore platforms installed around the world.
General Cable offers several cable design options according to individual customer requirements and environmental conditions, i.e. concentric or segmented conductors, XLPE or EPR insulations, tape or wire screens and radial metallic water barriers. The components can be further adapted to peripheral equipment like DTS systems for real-time temperature monitoring.
The deep water requirements of oil and gas submarine applications have resulted in longer length requirements. To meet these requirements, General Cable has the production plants prepared for long lengths as well as innovative splice solutions.
General Cable and NSW also offer a range of special cables for subsea oil & gas operations including hydrographic cables plus lift umbilicals for ROV’s and other Underwater Vehicles including Trenchers and Ploughs.
