Energy transformation: preparing for tomorrow


Operators’ and EPCs’ challenges in changing their commitments to meet expectations

This innovation and activity is essential to meet today’s energy demands. However, it requires significant investment which must be carefully managed to ensure project viability and operational profitability.

Yet no matter how advanced and ambitious a project is, its energy production process must be considering the impact to the environment. Operators and EPCs are already aware of the importance and the necessity of cleaner energy production, reducing carbon footprint, eliminating and reusing their waste efficiently.

This change forces all players, and especially oil companies, to act and contribute to the support of energy transition.  All major players are committed to reduce their carbon impact in the 30 years to 2050, in compliance with the Paris Agreement. The Agreement represents a bold statement of the determination of the international community under the United Nations to transform the global economy so as to limit the impact that power generation, production methods, agriculture, and consumption patterns have on the climate system.

Cables play a critical role in helping companies improve performance and meet these new demands. However, to obtain cables that will fulfil these objectives and give a competitive edge, it is no longer enough just to attempt purchase from a cable stockist.

Instead, it is essential to engage with a cable partner from an early project stage; one that can understand your unique requirements, make recommendations – and work with you through project design, installation, and operation, to ensure you are always fully-provisioned with the right cables, on time, and with full technical support.

For over 120 years, Nexans has manufactured leading-edge power and data cable infrastructures. Today, as the leaders in energy sector cable technology, we are present everywhere in energy production, from onshore exploration, production, and distribution, to refinery and petrochemical infrastructure.

We supply our cables within a comprehensive portfolio that also include accessories, design solutions, and services & solutions during all your project steps. With a clear vision of the energy transition process, we maximize your project’s efficiency and performance, while you deliver cleaner energy.

We support your project from its outset, when we identify your unique needs and specifications. We ensure you choose the right cables and associated accessories, services & solutions, and boost your test campaigns’ efficiency. You can outsource all or part of your procurement to an expert, to reduce your overall cable connectivity costs.

At the same time, you will be demonstrating your commitment to sustainable development, while remaining compliant to applicable standards.

A full range of cable solutions for energy, control, and data - with special products for exploration, exploitation, refineries, and petrochemicals

Our full range of cable solutions for energy, control, and data includes LV/MV/HV power cables and advanced fiber/copper WANs and LANs, with special products for exploration, exploitation, refineries, and petrochemicals.

For example, our HYPRON lead-free product is a reduced-impact solution that protects cables from deterioration caused by hydrocarbons, acid, and alkaline compounds. This solution contributes to your drive to improve your environmental sustainability.

We produce high-reliability, low-maintenance cables for continuous production. Our products are found in Arctic and desert environments, as well as “mud” and oil. We also manufacture and innovate for pipelines, storage, and deep-well drilling.

We ease handling and save costs with our reduced weight and volume XLPE cable designs; our cables also offer superior fire-reaction and resistance to safeguard people and equipment.

We reduce your risk exposure with on-time deliveries to manage emergencies and limit operational downtime, while our multi-standard capability ensures that we deliver correctly certified cables worldwide – from global inventory distributed across the US, China, Singapore, Middle East, UK, and Norway.

Our pre-cuts and pre-assemblies with connectors facilitate installation and reduce waste.

With our services and solutions offer we can engage with you from the earliest design stages, with simulation and network planning for entire-complex projects. Then, our training and Through Life Support (TLS) from installation to maintenance includes installation expertise for remote land locations

Our ‘Do it right the first time’ approach encompasses a 100% cabling solution compatible with accessories and materials. This complete, unique skillset can support construction teams in gaining training, certification, and supervision, as part of a tailor-made training and certification process.

With our long experience in designing and manufacturing cables for challenging applications, and through-life support services, Nexans is your ideal partner for ensuring project success while managing energy transition. We understand the realities of huge projects, multiple teams, buying centers and engineering specialties. We can help you minimize expenses associated with unnecessary waste and cost duplication.
