HOUSTON -- The new Arctic Grade electrical cables from Draka featured at the Offshore Technology Conference are designed to meet the challenging conditions of extremely cold climates.

"Our new cost-effective Arctic Grade cable combines cold impact and cold bend requirements down to -40oC along with excellent mud and oil resistance," says Eivind Nesset, global innovations leader for Draka.

Under the IEC guidelines, the new Arctic Grade cables are also flame retardant and flame resistant and are available from 250 V to 30 kV.

"With un-discovered hydrocarbons located in more extreme parts of the earth and ocean we feel it is necessary to provide the technology our customers need to expand their exploration programs," says Nesset.
