Draka’s New Arctic Grade Offshore Cables

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Draka announced the new Arctic Grade cable which meets all cold bend and cold impact certifications required to operate in extremely cold climates.
 
“With more than 25% of the globally un-discovered hydrocarbons located in the arctic region we felt it was necessary to provide the technology our customer need to expand their exploration programs,” stated Eivind Nesset, global innovations leader for Draka.  “Our new cost-effective Arctic Grade cable combines cold impact and cold bend requirements down to -40oC with excellent MUD and oil resistance at the same time.”
 
Under the IEC guidelines, the new Arctic Grade cables are also flame retardant and flame resistant and come in a broad range of availability from 250V up to 30kVdepending upon customer requirements for power, instrumentation or control cable needs. These cables have been type tested according to relevant IEC and NEK606 specifications.  They are DNV Certified in accordance with DNV Rules for certification of Ships, High Speed & Light Craft and Offshore Standards. 
 
“We have been developing this product for a couple of years now, and in early 2008 were satisfied with the technical performance of the product,” stated Nesset.  “We have been awarded a contract by Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions to supply Artic Grade cables for use by the Sakhalin Island project.

“These high performance cables are to form part of a Fire Alarm system that Tyco has been commissioned to provide Fluor Engineering,” added Nesset. “These HCF cables have the capability to withstand high heat temperatures ranging from 750°C to 1100°C.”
