Management and control of production wells
Nexans produce and install power cables and advanced umbilicals for the management and control of production wells on the seabed for the transmission of:
Special purpose cables
Our product range also covers special purpose cables for:
- Direct electrical heating of submarine flowlines (DEH)
- Seismic surveys
- Control of remotely operated vehicles (ROV)
System design and engineering
Submarine cables, umbilicals and their related components must withstand great mechanical stresses and strains during laying and operation – especially in ultra deep waters. Cable and umbilical systems have limited access for maintenance after the installation is completed. To minimize the risk of costly recovery and repair operations, our engineers apply their profound understanding of how the cable and components operate as a ”system”.
Being critical elements in any submarine transmission system, it is extremely important that cables and umbilicals are installed properly. C/S Nexans Skagerrak, one of the world’s most advanced laying vessels, is available for laying and repair operations all over the world. To avoid damage on submarine cables and pipelines Nexans' has developed the Capjet Trencher and Capjet SPIDER dredger system.
Competence centre for submarine technology
Research and development (R&D) are carried out on a comprehensive range of submarine power cables and umbilicals at Nexans' competency centre for high-voltage submarine power cables and umbilicals.
