Submarine cables carry the highest voltages and the greatest number of secure telecommunication links between islands, countries and even continents. Tratos manufactures power cables and communication cables for submarine applications, including combined power and communication cables using fibre-optic cables and components.
Today, Submarine cables form vital links in the global power transmission and communications network, bringing power and links to the outside world for a lot of isolated or widely spread communities.
The manufacture, installation and operation of Submarine Cables are very different to those of land cables. Tratos Subsea cables have been developed thanks to the skill and expertise of its experienced seasoned engineers, most of whom have more than twenty years of experience. Tratos invests constantly in the latest technology, materials and human resources needed to meet the highest performance requirements in the field of Submarine cables. The latest generation of cables combines tried and tested manufacturing techniques with state of the art technology to create cables of phenomenal strength and flexibility.
Tratos Submarine cables have been tested extensively in both in-house and independent laboratory trials as well as in actual installations. They have proven themselves to be exceptionally reliable.
Working with customers, Tratos is able to tailor-make cables to meet the demands of any application.
- HYBRID – Energy & communication: power & fibre – in one cable. Two services, one installation means cost savings and reduced operative exposure to harsh environments.
- STRENGTH- Integrity to rely on. Strength, reliability and consistency, Tratos’ cables are built to withstand the tension and torsional forces applied to them during installation and operation..
- FLEXIBILITY – When installation environments are at their harshest, a flexible, high quality, reliable, ‘right first time’ cable is the answer.
