HUBER+SUHNER launches new cable solutions to increase safety and operational lifespan

HUBER+SUHNER is launching four new RADOX OFL cable solutions over the next 18 months, tackling critical demands in offshore cabling that will help save space, reduce costs and decrease CO₂ footprint significantly

 The RADOX OFL cable portfolio enables the offshore industry to reduce cable weight on a platform by up to 50%, thereby potentially saving offshore facilities several hundreds of thousands of dollars in structural construction costs. 

All of the cables feature a lightweight, compact design that is significantly more flexible than conventional cables, enabling tight bending where space is critical. Additionally, RADOX OFL cables feature a thinner cable wall which reduces stripping time by up to 50%, making installation easier and quicker. The cable’s lifecycle is ten times longer as the core and sheath can withstand up to 125°C, compared to only 90°C for conventional cables. This delivers significantly improved Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) - a critical factor for the oil & gas industry. 

Frank Thorn, vice president Process Industries at HUBER+SUHNER, said, “The RADOX OFL cables utilise our unique e-beam crosslink technology for instrumentation, databus, fibre optical, and RF/Coax cables. They have been developed with safety and efficiency at their core and represent the most significant breakthrough in the cable technology within the oil & gas industry in 30 years.”

RADOX OFL Instrumentation cables and the RADOX OFL RF cables are available now.  The next additions to the series – RADOX OFL CAT5e/6/7 cables and RADOX OFL FO cables – will be released in 2023 to complete the full RADOX OFL offering.
