Offshore Cables

General Cable offers a complete range of low- and medium-voltage power, control and instrumentation cables for the offshore topside market. Our cables have been supplied to shipyards around the world to be installed on FPSOs, FSO, drilling and production platforms. 

Recognized for its advanced material innovations, General Cable’s system approach to cable construction consistently reaches new levels of performance. Every cable is engineered with the reliability and operational excellence required to power the drilling, exploration and production of natural resources in the most demanding oil and gas environments around the world.
The safety of people and equipment is a priority consideration in the design and construction of Exzhellent® 92-3, Exzhellent®-606 and Genfire®-606 cables. They are made from zero-halogen compounds with a low-acidity and -corrosivity of gases evolved and a low opacity of fumes evolved during combustion, in accordance with the corresponding IEC standards. They therefore allow for quick, safe evacuation in the event of fire.
