Offshore Cables

Offshore Cables

Offshore cables are fire resistant, flame retardant, low smoke, halogen‐free & mud resistant cables. These are the high performance specialty cables used in offshore drilling, exploration & production units. Voltage range includes 0.6/1.0 kV for power & control cables and 150/250 V for instrumentation cables. These cables are manufactured to NEK TS 606 along‐with IEC 60092‐350 series standards.
