HUBER+SUHNER to address challenges limiting the development of the offshore industry at OGA 2019

Speaking at Oil and Gas Asia (OGA) 2019, the HUBER+SUHNER Head of Business Unit Offshore/Energy Frank Thorn will address the urgent changes that need to be made in the offshore cable industry to allow for future progress.

The demand for oil and gas has grown consistently over the last few decades, despite developments in renewable energy. This demand has resulted in a necessity for the offshore industry to explore ever more remotely in order to access these diminishing resources.

Offshore facilities require an enormous amount of resources that must be effective and robust enough to withstand the extreme conditions of these locations. Further to this, the equipment used within these facilities need to be as resistant as possible to these conditions to keep the facilities running smoothly, minimizing the need for any emergency repairs.

Yet, according to Thorn, signal, control, instrumentation and power supply offshore cables are in many ways still at the same level that they were several decades ago due to outdated standards.

do not fully comply with these old offshore standards but offer better electrical data as well as better safety features.

HUBER+SUHNER will showcase these developments at OGA 2019, which takes place in Kuala Lumpur on 18-20 June. Thorn will speak as part of the Technical Talks agenda on June 19 at 2.45pm.

RADOX”radiation X-linked” and describes the process of crosslinking thermoplastic polymers by means of electron beams. HUBER+SUHNER has used this in-house technology successfully since the 1970s to achieve notable improvements in the thermal, mechanical and chemical properties of the cable insulation material.

RADOXe industry with a reliable technology that is straightforward to use.

Aside from its extensive electrical cable portfolio, HUBER+SUHNER also has a wide range of fibre optic connectivity solutions for indoor and outdoor connectivity. This technology, designed for the most challenging environments, is ideally suited for monitoring and control, as well as sensor applications on offshore platforms.

A highlight of the HUBER+SUHNER fibre optic portfolio are the Q-ODCected to stringent vibration testing without suffering any performance loss, as well as hundreds of mating cycles. This solution and others will also be showcased at the OGA event on booth 2712, alongside the HUBER+SUHNER RADOX
