HOUSTON -- Cable specialist Nexans plans to highlight its full range of solutions for topsides and subsea projects this week at OTC.

At today’s morning technical session, Bjørn Roger Slora, senior specialist of Nexans in Norway, plans to present a paper entitled “Qualification of Dynamic Deepwater Power Cable” which outlines new technology developed to address the implications of subsea processing power distribution on field architecture.

Slora also will be on hand at the company’s booth to discuss this subject in more detail after the presentation.

Other Nexans technologies on show will include:
• CRYODYN, a flexible, vacuum-insulated pipe for LNG offshore loading
• HYPRON, an environmentally friendly alternative to lead-sheathed cable for onshore installations
• ICEFLEX, claimed to be the first halogen-free marine and offshore full range cable to withstand severe Arctic temperatures down to -50 °C (-58 °F).

Nexans will provide details of offshore projects, including its work for the Prirazlomnaya oil production platform in the Russian Barents Sea. Here Nexans is supplying low-temperature and ice-resistant control, instrumentation and power cables.
