Marine & Offshore cables
for shipwiring and floating platforms
We supply the full range of marine and offshore cables for applications including power, instrumentation, control, and telecommunications.
Our marine and offshore cables are designed to withstand the harshest elements and meteorological conditions, including saltwater spray and submersion, strong waves and wind. Their tough construction ensures the reliability of electronic components, instrumentation and control systems in corrosive environments such as the open sea.
Our marine and offshore range includes cables that combine high flexibility with the capacity to withstand oils and greases as well as mechanical and thermal stresses, which are common in marine and offshore environments.
Our multicore, flexible data cables for high-density wiring are used extensively in marine vessels, process control systems, computers, data processors and other applications facing space constraints.
Our marine and offshore cables can be found in one of Babcock's highest-profile naval projects, the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier at the Rosyth dockyard. They can be found on many Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (MODUs), Floating Production Storage and Offloading units (FPSOs) and platforms operated by some of the largest international industry players, including Saipem, Petrofac, Shell and BP. Our marine and offshore cables can also be found on newly built ships leaving dockyards every year from Kuala Lumpur to Karachi.
