DNV GL certified igus chainflex cables for e-chains

26 March 2019

Oil rigs, gas production facilities, wind farms, port facilities or ship cranes: these applications have very special requirements for safe energy and data transmission. igus offers more than 370 DNV GL certified cables for use in maritime e-chains.

Together with the DNV GL, igus has developed completely new test methods and standards for dynamic cables in e-chains. In addition to the extensive testing procedures in accordance with DNV GL, the cables have also been tested under real conditions in the igus test laboratory. They therefore have a unique guarantee for up to 10 million strokes in energy chains, are flexible in terms of operating temperatures down to -40°C and are also UV-resistant. 

In addition to having seawater resistance, the cables operate reliably under the influence of oil. The cables are resistant according to MUD NEK606, which enables maintenance-free pumping on drilling rigs and also supports operator safety

With chainflex cables, plant constructors enjoy maximum freedom for the design of cables and energy chains, since there are virtually no limits on the application areas – whether under water or on the surface, whether under permanent sunshine or in prolonged cold. The use of approved chainflex cables means safe and reliable operation of offshore installations for those responsible for moving equipment in shipyards, general contracting or manufacturing companies.
