Solutions for the offshore, oil and gas industries

Safe, light, saltwater-resistant and maintenance-free - Strong igus® plastics for the offshore, oil and gas industry

They are already in use in many offshore applications and have proved very effective: energy chain systems and plain bearings from igus® withstand the toughest environmental conditions. In wind power plants, on drilling vessels or on oil rigs, they ensure a reliable supply of energy Whether in highly dynamic pipe handling applications or for the energy supply on the cantilever, igus® energy chains offer a safe, light and maintenance-free solution.
Thanks to our engineering team and thanks to DNV/GL- and NEK-certified chainflex® cables, ready-to-connect complete systems can be offered that are specially tailored to meet the needs of the offshore, oil and gas industry.
For this reason the largest companies in the oil, gas and offshore industries worldwide put their trust in us.
