Shipbuilding and Offshore

Case Study

Connectivity in Tight Spaces

Hazardous sites such as offshore oil platforms and ships require special electrical solutions, which have to be space-saving.

The Challenge

Offsore oil platforms and ships require special electrical solutions such as explosion-proof junction boxes and cable glands. Additionally, there is the constant pressure to save space, an extremely precious and expensive commodity in offshore environments.

Our Solution

Unlike other suppliers, TE offers both cold and heat-shrink terminations; an holistic offering that is unique in the market. Asiatec identified and proposed cold shrink terminations as the best solution for their needs. In addition, TE provides Asiatec with a compact design termination that addressed perfectly the issue of space limitation with increasing power demands.

The Result

TE’s long-standing reputation for excellence and reliability — and the fact that Raychem terminations are designed to outlast the cables they are installed onto — helps both Asiatec as well as its customers be confident about our solutions. As Asiatec’s preferred cable solutions partner, TE works closely with the company to ensure ruggedness and reliability in every installation.
