New Reinforced Cable Solutions for Underwater Tunnelling

New Reinforced Cable Solutions for Underwater Tunnelling

The specialist cable producers NOVACAVI has recently applied its full capability for design and manufacture to create new reinforced cable solutions. The custom-built cables for harsh environments can provide special supply and power communication cables for the construction of a new underwater tunnel.

The reinforced cables had to be engineered and expertly produced considering they have to perform as a link between surface vessel and sub-tube junction unit at 100m depth. The high-performance cables are also often retracted and released by the winch on the deck of a tugboat, as well as dive into the water and occasionally touch the ground during the extreme construction process.

On the basis of these severe operational requirements, NOVACAVI conceived and created a longitudinal watertight cable solution with overall braided stainless-steel wire reinforcement for longitudinal cutting prevention and an external close wave polyethylene monofilament over braid for additional protection to rely on throughout the underwater tunnelling project.

As a specialist in custom cable design & manufacturing for advanced technology since 1975, NOVACAVI develops any cable solutions with engineering expertise, comprehensive knowledge of materials and a high degree of manufacturing.
