Eland Cables supplies a comprehensive range of marine & offshore cable for use shipboard wiring, offshore platforms, and other at-sea installations for oil drilling and production. These cover power, control, signal, instrumentation and communication shipwiring applications.

Marine & Offshore cable

Our marine cables are designed to perform in extremes of temperatures, both high and low, and to be resistant to adverse elements such as humidity, oil, acid, muds and salt water, as are prevalent in most marine and offshore operational environments. They are manufactured in accordance with a number of British Standards, including BS6883 (fixed wiring in ships, and on mobile and fixed offshore units), BS7655 (insulation and sheathing materials for ships’ wiring and offshore applications), and BS7917 (fire resistant cables for fixed wiring in ships and on mobile and fixed offshore units). They also comply with a wide range of International Standards, including IEC 60092 (electrical installation in ships) and IEC 60331 (fire resistant cables), the Norwegian standard NEK606 (halogen free or mud resistant cables for offshore installation), and certification bodies including Germany’s Det Norske Veritas (DNV), the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and the Lloyd’s Register of Shipping.
