About the Oil & Gas Cable Competence Centre

Still today, oil and gas cables are part of almost any major city's power cable infrastructure. With our Oil & Gas Cable Competence Centre (OGCCC), we are putting emphasis on these decade-old oil and gas cables and use our almost 100 years of know-how of working with these cable systems. This allows us to provide our customers with an excellent service and unique solutions when it comes to the question of how to keep these cable systems operational without causing environmental damages. Our team of engineers, jointers, sales, and other functions is working with joined forces to always find the best solution for the customer. To bring the diverse know-how from our experts on oil and gas cables together and benefit from synergies, we founded the OGCCC some years ago which has already proofen to be a value-add to our service portfolio.

Expertise across our different sites

Our experts for oil and gas cables are based at our sites in Berlin, Brøndby, and Troisdorf. The site in Troisdorf was opened in mid-2020 and serves as the hub for our jointers and equipment for the oil and gas cable projects in Germany and close countries while it also offers a spacious training centre. In April 2021, the whole supply, production and engineering of oil and gas cable accessories has been transferred to Troisdorf to allow a smooth operation, fast reaction time and provide an excellent customer service.
