|EXPERIENCE, INNOVATION AND SERVICE
NSW Technology Ltd, located in Aberdeen, Scotland, is a 100% subsidiary of the German cable manufacturer Nord-deutsche Seekabel-
werke GmbH (NSW), who has been pro-ducing underwater cables since 1899. NSW was already laying its fi rst submarine telecommunication
cable in 1904, approximately 7,993 kilometers in length. A century of experience in armored and non-armored submarine cables for carrying power,
signals, communications and fi ber-optic applications has formed the foundation for a forward-looking organization committed to innovation and
unrivalled customer service.
Since 2007, NSW has been a 100-percent member of the General Cable Corporation (NYSE:BGC) and has become the competence center for submarine cables for the General Cable Group. NSW benefits not only from General Cable’s profound expertise but also from its global reach in the wire and cable industry. Quality, state-of-the-art technology and customer focus are General Cable’s top priorities.
CABLE SOLUTIONS FOR THE OFFSHORE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY
Fundamental changes in the exploitation infrastructure in the global oil and gas industry do require state-of-the-art transmission and distribution solutions, based on highly re-liable cable designs. As a consequence, tailor-made solu-tions are needed in most cases. As the recognized experts in the offshore oil and gas industry, NSW can offer these solutions by meeting the most stringent of industrial re-quirements. We offer customised, fl exible cable solutions, which are reliable and cost-effective even under extreme conditions. Over the years, NSW has adapted new materi-als such as special metal alloys, high-density cross-linked polymers, thermoplastics and synthetic yarn to improve the elasticity and operational reliability of its cables.
Typical examples of cables we produce for the offshore industry are:
› Submarine power cables and components for the oil & gas industry
› Fiber-optic data cables
› ROV main lift and tether cables
› Control cables› Plough and trencher umbilicals
› Air gun and electro mechanical umbilicals
› Submarine electro optical cables
QUALITY ASSURANCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NSW maintains an integrated quality management system according to ISO 9001 and 14001 as well as OHSAS 18001, each of which has been certifided by LRQA and is reviewed regularly for effectiveness by LRQA auditors.
