Oil and Gas Cable Competence Centre (OGCCC)

Our expertise in working on oil and gas filled cables

Oil and gas insulated cable infrastructure is ageing and so is the workforce skilled in oil and gas insulated cables. At the same time, the demand for service on such legacy cables is increasing. Therefore, we have founded our Oil & Gas Cable Competence Centre (OGCCC) to secure that our knowledge in working on oil and gas insulated cables is maintained.

We have a dedicated pool of jointers for the work on oil and gas filled cables

The OGCCC ensures that a sufficient pool of capable jointers is maintained

More than 100 jointers, based in Germany, Denmark, and Sweden are the backbone of Service and Installation, ready to serve customers across the globe. A group of 20 jointers is dedicated exclusively to work on oil and gas filled cables and 32 of our jointers are specialized in working on MI cables. Their knowledge ranges from LPOF through APBF to GASI/GASA cable jointing in a voltage range from 30 up to 525 kV.
To secure that knowledge of legacy cables is maintained and transferred to new jointer generations, we have established our Oil and Gas Cable Compentence Centre (OGCCC). 
Through the OGCCC we offer you:
  • Availability of highly skilled resources
  • Highest quality of workmanship through extensive experience
  • Securing and maintaining oil and gas filled cable know-how

In our training centres, jointers are certified to work on oil and gas insulated cables
