At SPE Offshore Europe 2019, HUBER+SUHNER will present the benefits of its innovative RADOX® OFL solution to address current offshore industry requirements. The solution reduces weight by up to 60% and space by up to 70%, enabling reliable connections in the most demanding environment and space-restricted conditions.
With extensive offshore experience, the RADOX® OFL cable by HUBER+SUHNER has been designed to offer greater flexibility and reliability to keep up with ever-increasing demands for durability, performance and environment in Oil and Gas applications compared to traditional solutions. The innovative compact design can cope with a smaller bend radius to save space by up to 70% and weight by up 60%, and further to reduce costs and installation time. RADOX® OFL is ideal for monitoring and control, as well as sensor applications on offshore platforms.
Additionally, HUBER+SUHNER will present the second generation of the acclaimed RADOX® 125 cable, the only offshore cable that fulfils the highest safety standards: CPR (Construction Products Regulation) and DNV. Like its predecessor, it is robust and resistant to chemicals, fire and extreme temperatures.
“Our renowned RADOX® technology allows customers to reap the benefits at the same cost price, giving us a competitive edge that cannot be found anywhere else on the market,” said Barry Larcombe, Sales Director Low Frequency at HUBER+SUHNER UK.
Industrial and offshore facilities are often accessible only in difficult conditions which means that their removal, adjustment or emergency maintenance requires an extreme level of resources and time. As pressure on the offshore industry mounts, the need for reliable solutions that meet strict safety requirements is critical. Proving its expertise in offshore solutions and the quality of its products, the RADOX® cables from HUBER+SUHNER have a lasting service life, much longer than conventional cables in the offshore industry and comply with EU building products directive.
RADOX® stands for "radiation X-linked" and describes the process of crosslinking thermoplastic polymers by means of electron beams. It possesses better abrasion resistance and provides greater cut resistance compared to other technologies. Utilising the RADOX® cross-linked polymer jacket technology, the HUBER+SUHNER solution is proven to be resilient and robust to address the offshore market needs, including harsh environmental conditions such as high temperatures, oil, chemicals, and UV radiation.
To keep connections running smoothly, the cable also boasts better safety features for the handling of an enormous amount of resources. Core cables do not melt or drip in the event of a short circuit so this will ultimately minimise emergency repairs and it is low smoke, minimising the potential for hazardous fume inhalation.
“Our technology is a game-changer for the industry, so there isn’t a better opportunity to showcase these products than at SPE Offshore Europe 2019,” added Larcombe. “We look forward to meeting with existing and potential customers to introduce our latest technological innovations that address the evolving challenges faced by the offshore market.”
