PARIS, -- Nexans, the worldwide leader in the cable industry, will present at ADIPEC its full range of cabling solutions and umbilical cable expertise, as well as its complete and reliable solutions for complex oil and gas projects, onshore and offshore, topside and subsea. Solutions include its environmentally friendly HYPRON range of cables; HV (high voltage) underground and submarine cables of up to 550 kV; MV (medium voltage) underground and submarine cables (including umbilicals); LV (low voltage) underground and submarine cables; instrumentation cables; thermocouple cables; communication cables (LAN cables and systems, underground and submarine FO cables); and accessories.
Moreover, Nexans will demonstrate its ability to serve the Middle East region, introducing its new plant that recently started production in Qatar. Finally, the Group will present its commitment to sustainable development through various global initiatives it has implemented.
HYPRON(R): an environmentally friendly alternative to lead-sheathed cables
HYPRON(R) is an environmentally friendly alternative to lead-sheathed cables for onshore power, control and instrumentation applications in the oil and gas industry.
The HYPRON(R) design offers exactly the same protection against aggressive petrochemicals as traditional lead-sheathed cables, with the added advantage of improved ease of handling, installation and transportation costs thanks to its lower weight and smaller cross-section. Generally HYPRON complies with IEC 60228 and meets other international standards like the IEC 60502-1 for Low Voltage and BS EN 50288-7 for instrumentation cables.
HYPRON has been fully tested to prove its suitability for a wide variety of applications, including MV and LV power as well as control and instrumentation, when exposed to aggressive chemicals as well as temperatures ranging from -20 degreesC to +60 degreesC.
Nexans' presence in the Middle East
Nexans is represented in the Middle East by the New Qatar International Company (QICC). In October, Nexans completed a major step in the development of its joint venture in Qatar - QICC - with the start-up of commercial production at the new cable plant in Mesaieed Industrial City (around 40k m from Doha). This state-of-the-art plant employs more than 100 people and is expected to generate a volume of business of over $100 million by 2011.
The new QICC plant is focused on the manufacture of low, medium and low end high voltage power cables for energy infrastructure and building projects, as well as special cables for the oil and gas sector. It has a current total floor space of 19,000m2 on an overall plot of 70,000 m2, and a strategic location close to a harbour that is being developed as the largest in the Middle-East. Moreover, two other Nexans plants based in Lebanon and Turkey also serve oil and gas customers too.
