LEONI offers various solutions to meet the high demands placed on cables in offshore applications that withstand the harsh offshore environment. The resistance of the cable sheath to oil/mud is particularly important here. Mud is a heavy mixture used in gas and oil drilling to lubricate and cool the drill. The requirements for this are defined in the Norwegian standard NEK 606. This means that cables resistant to mud must have an outer sheath of materials suitable for installations that come into contact with mud. Therefore, according to NEK 606, a sludge-resistant cable must meet the requirements of IEC 60092-359 for SHF2.
LEONI offers a comprehensive range of products for offshore applications:
- Especially oil resistant (mud res)
- Approved by international classification societies
- Neutrally buoyant or floating
- System integrity in the event of fire for use under tough offshore conditions (e.g. NEK 606)
- Fire resistant LAN cable
