Alba Marina and Rospo Platform upgrade to TratoSubmarine

Tratos has supplied 1830 meters of is TratoSubmarine medium voltage cable to energy company Edison for use in its Alba Marina floating storage and offloading vessel (FSO) and Rospo Mare B Platform, located in the Adriatic Sea.

Manufactured in Tratos’ Italian factory to IEC 60228 and IEC 60502-2, IEC 60840 to 26/45 KV, the TratoSubmarine cable comes with a copper or aluminium circular stranded conductor, extruded semi-conducting layer, HEPR insulation and a special hygroscopic PE inner sheath and over sheath. It features double galvanised steel armouring for exceptional durability, making TratoSubmarine ideally suited to the oil and gas and utilities markets. In this project Tratos has used  a unique protection water barrier in the construction of the cable.

The TratoSubmarine power cable replaces the existing Tratos cable which was fitted at the Alba Marina and Rospo Mare B Platform in 2004.
