Underwater cables

Since the early 90ies, TRATOS has been manufacturing components for medium and low voltage underwater cables,  including those made of optical fibres. Over the years, the ability to produce these components and to perform the tests needed to use them in submarine OIL&GAS systems has stimulated TRATOS to invest in production, testing and handling machinery in order to be able to manufacture complete cable products and not just single components. 

The first supply of underwater optical fibre cables by TRATOS started in the mid-2000s. They were used to connect the OFF-SHORE Adriatic LNG regasification facility on the Adriatic coast. Hence, several associated projects, including power cables, ending with the production and commissioning of medium-voltage hybrid 18/30kV cables with 64 optical fibres, supplied to ENI SPA for the AREA 1 FULL-FIELD project in the Gulf of Mexico.

Regardless of the limitations connected with the factory logistics, TRATOS was able to find its market share in the underwater cable industry because the company can guarantee top-quality standards and highly-appreciated customer-oriented order management.

TRATOS can assist customers from cable design to engineering in compliance with international standards and meet all system requirements. The company also caters for cable production, quality and acceptance testing, as well as the supply of installation accessories, supervision during cable installation and component commissioning.

Customers are supported from the very early planning stages to system completion, providing on-site assistance, if necessary and requested.
