With the long-term support of leading oil field operators, the Company has developed, tested and qualified a range of advanced cable designs suitable for subsea, down hole and pipeline flow assurance applications.

BPP Cables Technology Director, Darren Patel observed: “We are dedicated to meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations through a programme of continuing development to achieve technical advances in power cable design for subsea and hazardous environment applications.

The objective is to extend the performance envelope of our products to help our customers in the oil and gas, marine, exploration and renewable energy sectors meet increasingly demanding operating conditions with reliable products and reduced life cycle costs.”
