Conditions at sea, like those on land, are rough and extremely demanding for system components in the oil and gas industry. Dirt, salt water, vibration, extreme temperatures, high levels of mechanical stress, and the explosive environments are just some of the difficult conditions to which cables, hoses, and energy supply systems are exposed in oil and gas extraction. We have products suitable for these special application areas. In land and offshore drilling rigs, they ensure a reliable energy supply on such systems as 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 your requirements.
Components for drilling rigs, pipe handlers, top drives, BOP cranes, man baskets, tensioners, and LARS
Components for cutter ladders and spud pipes
Energy chain and cable belong together — so why not have them delivered fully harnessed directly and take advantage of the benefits?
Heavy-duty Liebherr rotary cranes are used on installation vessels for offshore wind turbines. They can lift components weighing up to 1,500 tons. Energy transfer through the slewing ring is ensured by an innovative energy chain concept that allows the boom to rotate up to 900 degrees.
Plants in the field of oil production often have to deal with severe weather conditions. For a Canadian oil drilling company, our e-loop energy chain solution ensures that the top drive is always safely and reliably supplied with energy and signals, even during severe storms.
Heavy-duty energy chains in drilling rigs for such systems as the top drive, cantilever, or pipe handler; flexible rotary modules in pivoting heavy-duty cranes; or safe shore power supplies: Find out more about how our motion plastics are used in these and other projects.
What challenges and what advantages do automation and digitalisation present for the maritime industry? How can companies meet the strict test criteria to have components certified by competent institutions such as DNV GL? What opportunities arise for suppliers, plant constructors, and operators of drilling platforms and ships from the use of certified components such as cables?
Originally developed for a very special application in deep-drilling rigs, the e-loop was, shortly after it was launched, used in such applications as bucket wheel excavators, ship unloaders, and offshore wind turbine construction. This white paper outlines various use cases to provide inspiration.
