Energy supply systems and cables for the offshore industry

Conditions at sea, like those on land, are rough and extremely demanding for system components in the oil and gas industry. Dirt, salt water, vibration, extreme temperatures, high levels of mechanical stress, and the explosive environments are just some of the difficult conditions to which cables, hoses, and energy supply systems are exposed in oil and gas extraction. We have products suitable for these special application areas. In land and offshore drilling rigs, they ensure a reliable energy supply on such systems as the cantilever and in highly dynamic pipe handling. Light and maintenance-free. Thanks to our engineering team and DNV- and NEK-certified chainflex cables, we also offer ready-to-connect complete systems that are tailored to your requirements.

2022 news

improve what moves – 2022 news

Get a quick overview in our five-minute video of what's new for the offshore industry. There is also a new energy chain for the top drive and easily integrated sensors for e-chain wear monitoring. Also new: The P4HD56.R roller energy chain:

▲ Tech up
  • The service life is 50% longer than that of its predecessor
  • Simple integration for predictive maintenance sensors (i.Sense)
▼ Cost down
  • Low maintenance
  • Minimised downtime when an i.Cee module is used

Success stories

RBR in a Liebherr heavy-duty rotary crane

Energy chain wrapped around the crane leg

Heavy-duty Liebherr rotary cranes are used on installation vessels for offshore wind turbines. They can lift components weighing up to 1,500 tons. Energy transfer through the slewing ring is ensured by an innovative energy chain concept that allows the boom to rotate up to 900 degrees.

e-loop in the Akita top drive

Consistency even during a snowstorm

Plants in the field of oil production often have to deal with severe weather conditions. For a Canadian oil drilling company, our e-loop energy chain solution ensures that the top drive is always safely and reliably supplied with energy and signals, even during severe storms.

Offshore applications

... and other success stories

Heavy-duty energy chains in drilling rigs for such systems as the top drive, cantilever, or pipe handler; flexible rotary modules in pivoting heavy-duty cranes; or safe shore power supplies: Find out more about how our motion plastics are used in these and other projects.
