Conditions at sea are rough and extremely demanding for components. Sea water, high and low temperatures, shocks, vibrations due to wind and motion; all this puts a lot of stress on cables, hoses and energy supplies. We have products suitable for these special application locations. In wind turbines, on drilling vessels or on oil rigs, they ensure a reliable supply of energy, both on the cantilever and in highly dynamic pipe handling. Light and maintenance-free. Thanks to our engineering team and DNV GL and NEK-certified chainflex cables, we also offer ready-to-connect complete systems that are tailored to meet your needs.
Our innovations in 2020 for the offshore, oil and gas industry
Tech up, cost down: with new e-chain models, chainflex cables and isense measuring and monitoring systems, specifically tailored to the requirements of the industry.
You can find more information on these and further innovations at our 400m2 trade show stand. You can explore it virtually, on your own or together with our industry expert. Make an appointment now for a guided virtual tour with individual consultation:
The alternative to the service loop to guide cables safely in hanging applications. Ideal for three-dimensional applications.
Combination of the advantages of a polymer energy chain with those of a high-strength pull rope. Inside the chain, the pull rope transfers the tensile forces to the mounting brackets and the structure. As a result, the cables are kept completely free of strain.
Convenient: individual cables can be replaced.
More than 370 certified control, servo, motor and robot cables as well as bus, data, encoder and fibre optic cables
The flexibility of polymers has made energy chains and energy supply systems a valued asset in the oil and gas industry. What are the advantages of igus energy supply systems in top drive systems? What differentiates them from other solutions, such as festoons or service loops?
What challenges, what advantages do automation and digitalisation bring to the maritime industry? How can companies meet the strict test criteria to have components certified by competent institutions such as DNV-GL? What opportunities arise for suppliers, plant constructors and operators of drilling platforms and ships through the use of certified components such as cables?
What is the fastest way to replace cables in e-loops? What does “heavy duty” mean in the context of e-chains? You can find interesting contributions about our products in the offshore industry in the igus blog.
