High-performance polymers for the offshore‑industry

Conditions at sea are rough and extremely demanding for components. Sea water, high and low temperatures, shocks, vibrations due to wind and motion; all this puts a lot of stress on cables, hoses and energy supplies. We have products suitable for these special application locations. In wind turbines, on drilling vessels or on oil rigs, they ensure a reliable supply of energy, both on the cantilever and in highly dynamic pipe handling. Light and maintenance-free. Thanks to our engineering team and DNV and NEK-certified chainflex cables, we also offer ready-to-connect complete systems that are tailored to meet your needs.

A video of our highlights for the offshore industry

This year, we are launching 168 innovations. Industry Manager Tim Schneebeck will present the top news for the offshore industry in just two minutes. This includes the new cable package for top drive systems in the e-loop:

  • Harmonisation with all components of TopDrive for optimum fit in connector and chain
  • Reduction of costs by approx. 35% due to waiving the need to manufacture one-off products for projects

Modular e-loop energy chain system

The alternative to the service loop to guide cables safely in hanging applications. Ideal for three-dimensional applications.

  • Combines the advantages of a plastic energy chain with those of a high-strength pull rope.
  • Inside the chain, the pull rope transfers the tensile forces to the mounting brackets and the structure. As a result, the cables are kept completely free of strain.
  • Convenient: individual cables can be replaced.
