Shaped filler system for submarine and offshore applications
DEH & Power cables AC System
Cost-effective shaped fillers for power cables provide optimum protection of electrical conductors and fibre optic cables.
We provide some of the world’s largest suppliers of DEH cable systems with protection covers.
Primo has unique expertise and experience in the design of custom profiled fillers. Our technology has been developed over years and we develop profiles with high functionality like co-and post extrusion, coating and semi-conductive materials. An important part of our service is documentation, colormarking and technical consultancy.
Customised shaped profiles for optimum protection and cost-effective solutions
Thermoplastic cable products are a durable solution developed in close partnership with the customer and based on many years of expertise in submarine cabling.
Rods - fiber enforced plastic profiles for submarine cable protection
At Primo Offshore, we are constantly developing and improving existing submarine insulation and fiber rods, and we have been doing so for years. This means that you will get solid guidance and information on plastic rods and how to practically apply them. Recent technological breakthroughs have made it viable to enforce offshore cables with plastic.
Traditionally steel has been used to enforce subsea cables, but plastic fibers instead of steel have a number of advantages. Steel is a durable and strong material, but the weight of steel can adversely impact the complicated process of sinking cables. Moreover, plastic fiber enforced rods are lighter and cheaper to produce. The lighter design means that more cable can be handled in the same proces. At the same time, durability is not compromised.
We use a wide range of plastic material types for submarine cabling, including PP, HDPE, TPE, SLPE and PVC. We choose the specific material for the specific project, based on your input and requirements for properties.
Extruded plastics - the obvious choice for shaped profiles in submarine cables and umbilicals
Extruded plastic profiles are ideally suited for submarine cabling projects of any sort. Submarine cable profiles offer many benefits:
• Replacement of ropes, tubes and solid pipes
• Light weight, easy handling, adjustable stiffness and flexibility
• More precise dimensions
• Greater design freedom
• Smaller tolerance deviations
• Stable and flexible end product when assembled
• Easier handling during installation on the seabed
• Reduced number of cable drums on the assemblly platform
• Additional features through co- or post-extrusion are possible
• High production efficiency and easy logistics
