Project: Offshore Oil Production and Thermoplastic High Pressure Hoses
Tratos has formed an alliance with pioneering Brazilian cable manufacturer MFX to produce bespoke subsea umbilical cables for use in offshore oil production andthermoplastic high pressure hoses.
MFX has earned an excellent reputation over the past 26 years for its top quality engineered products and services. The company continually invests in R&D, specialised employees, selected suppliers and associated consulting services.
The two companies have already worked on a number of high profile projects together, including the provision of 110km of umbilical cable for the Roncador field in the Campos Basin to water depths of 2000m; umbilical cable for the Bicudo field also in the Campos Basin; and intervention umbilicals to operate in water depths of 3000m and working pressure up to 10,000psi. These umbilical subsea cables allow for hydraulic and injection fluids to be transmitted, as well as power and data, depending on the cable type. The cables have been tested extensively both in laboratory trials and actual installations and have proven to be exceptionally reliable.
