Treotham offers chainflex cables from igus designed
specifically to allow safe energy and data transmission in maritime
Offshore companies involved in operating oil rigs, gas
production facilities, wind farms, port facilities or ship cranes face challenges
since these applications at sea have very special requirements for secure energy
and data transmission. igus is the only manufacturer to develop, test and
certify cables in accordance with DNV GL for use in maritime energy chains.
Today, Treotham customers have access to more than 370 control, servo, motor
and robot cables as well as bus, data, encoder and fibre optic cables for the
safe operation of maritime applications.
igus chainflex cables from Treotham help companies guarantee
the necessary energy and data supply, thereby offering significant cost
savings. This starts with straightforward planning using the approved cables,
continues with simple installation and ends with smooth and maintenance-free
operation in extreme conditions.
to oil, sun and seawater
Offshore companies and their suppliers that are
thinking of expanding their renewable technologies or preparing their merchant
fleets for the future, now have more than 370 DNV GL certified cables available
from Treotham. These are designed for highly dynamic use in energy chains for
safe operation at sea. Together with the DNV GL, igus has developed completely
new test methods and standards for dynamically used cables in e-chains. In
addition to the extensive testing procedures in accordance with DNV GL, the
cables have also been tested under real conditions in the igus test laboratory
spread over an area of 2,750 square metres.
These cables, therefore, have a unique guarantee for
up to 10 million strokes in energy chains, are flexible in terms of operating
temperatures down to -40¡C and are also UV-resistant. In addition to displaying
seawater resistance, the cables also operate reliably under the influence of
oil. The cables are resistant according to MUD NEK606, which enables
maintenance-free pumping on drilling rigs, and also ensures operator safety.
Specially designed for movement in e-chains, the cables reliably carry out
their tasks there, regardless of the length of travel or the load to be moved.
cables keep maritime installations moving reliably
With chainflex cables, plant constructors enjoy
maximum freedom for the design of cables and energy chains since there are
virtually no limits to the application areas – whether underwater or on the
surface, in permanent sunshine or in prolonged cold. The use of approved
chainflex cables means safe and stable operation of offshore installations for
all those responsible for the proper running of a facility in shipyards,
equipment suppliers, general contracting or manufacturing companies.
Treotham offers onsite consultations to customers
where they can design, supply and service igus chainflex cables and e-chain
