Flexibility, lightness and operational efficiency

As autonomous floating environments, ships of all kinds have to provide numerous functions that have less to do with other types of transportation, than with stable habitats. This requires hundreds of onboard systems for power, communication and control, which depend on an invisible network of cables hidden within the vessels superstructure.

The design parameters of a ship present a special installation challenge. Ship structures are becoming larger, longer, and wider. Cable installation can be an expensive, labor intensive and injury-prone operation. That is why since space is scarce and weight is an operational concern, cables need to be as small and light as possible.

To meet rising construction and modernization costs, Nexans has developed a full range of Power MPRX ® and MPRXCX FLEXISHIP® cables which offer flexibility, bendability, strippability and pulling ease to facilitate installation.
