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.

Would you like more information about suitable igus® products for the offshore industry? Our experts will be happy to get in touch with you.
The alternative to the service loop to guide cables safely in hanging applications. Ideal for three-dimensional and offshore applications.
Here igus® offers turnkey solutions for the offshore market, including engineering, project management as well as assembly and approval on site (also offshore), which are characterised by high quality and on-time delivery.
igus® offers the right solutions in the field of energy supply and energy guidance systems for both rotary cranes and port cranes on ships and offshore systems.
Pre-assembled energy chain systems (readychain® systems) with igus® chainflex® cables offer ready-to-connect solutions and save time in installation and commissioning of drilling rigs and top drive systems on site.
Common applications for energy chain in offshore pipe handling systems are long horizontal and vertical travels for guiding the drill rod, for example from the fingerboard to the top drive.
igus® offers a large number of energy chain types that can be perfectly adapted to the cables involved and make it possible to keep the installation space small.
igus® also offers completely enclosed energy chains for welding systems, in order to protect cables and hoses from external influences.
igus® also offers turn-key complete systems, including guide troughs or dynamic chainflex® cables, which are characterised by their freedom from maintenance and a long service life.
The flexibility of polymers has made energy chains and energy supply systems a valued asset in the oil and gas industry. What are the advantages of igus energy supply systems in top drive systems? What differentiates them from other solutions, such as festoons or service loops?
