HUBER+SUHNER to unveil RADOX portfolio at SPE Offshore Europe 2019

radox oil and gasAt SPE Offshore Europe 2019, HUBER+SUHNER will introduce RADOX OFL solution to address current offshore industry requirements

The solution reduces weight by up to 60 per cent and space by up to 70 per cent, enabling reliable connections in the most demanding environment and space-restricted conditions.

With extensive offshore experience, the RADOX OFL cable aims to provide greater flexibility and reliability to keep up with demands for durability, performance and environment in oil and gas applications compared to traditional solutions. The design is set to cope with a smaller bend radius to save space by up to 70 per cent and weight by up 60 per cent and further to reduce costs and installation time.

Additionally, HUBER+SUHNER will present the second generation of the acclaimed RADOX 125 cable, the offshore cable that fulfils the highest safety standards: CPR (Construction Products Regulation) and DNV.

Industrial and offshore facilities are often accessible in difficult conditions which mean that their removal, adjustment or emergency maintenance requires an extreme level of resources and time. As pressure on the offshore industry mounts, the need for reliable solutions that meet strict safety requirements is critical. Proving its expertise in offshore solutions and the quality of its products, the RADOX cables from HUBER+SUHNER have a lasting service life, much longer than conventional cables in the offshore industry and comply with EU building products directive.

RADOX stands for "radiation X-linked" and describes the process of crosslinking thermoplastic polymers by means of electron beams. It possesses better abrasion resistance and provides greater cut-resistance compared to other technologies. Utilising the RADOX cross-linked polymer jacket technology, the HUBER+SUHNER solution is proven to be resilient and robust to address the offshore market needs, including harsh environmental conditions such as high temperatures, oil, chemicals, and UV radiation.

To keep connections running smoothly, the cable also boasts better safety features for the handling of an enormous amount of resources. Core cables do not melt or drip in the event of a short circuit so this will ultimately minimise emergency repairs and it is low smoke, minimising the potential for hazardous fume inhalation.
