The offshore industry with igus® high-performance polymers

Conditions at sea and offshore are rough and extremely demanding for components. Sea water, high and low temperatures, vibrations due to wind and motion; all this puts a lot of stress on cables, hoses and energy supplies. We have products suitable for these special application locations. In wind turbines, on drilling vessels or on oil rigs, they all require a reliable supply of energy, both on the cantilever and in highly dynamic pipe handling. Light and maintenance-free. Thanks to our engineering team and DNV and NEK-certified chainflex cables, we also offer ready-to-connect complete systems that are tailored to meet your needs.

Modular e-loop® energy chain system for offshore industries

The alternative to the service loop to guide cables safely in hanging applications. Ideal for three-dimensional and offshore applications.

  • Combines the advantages of a plastic energy chain with those of a high-strength pull rope.
  • Inside the chain, the pull rope transfers the tensile forces to the mounting brackets and the structure. As a result, the cables are kept completely free of strain.
  • Convenient: individual cables can be replaced.
