Example of scope of supply:

  • QHSE
  • Civil works
  • Vertical installations in shafts
  • Installations in tunnels, ducts or open trenches
  • Directional drilling
  • Route planning
  • Calculation of tensile forces
  • Equipment for cable pulling
  • Jointing

Installation in all environments

A cable route sometimes requires crossing natural features, sensitive or densely populated areas. This requires special measurements to ensure that the people, animals and the natural environment are protected at all times. We have been working actively with high HSE standards for several decades, successfully completing installations in the outback of Australia, the bogs of Scotland, nature parks of Germany and in busy London.

Success in Challenging Environments

Offshore Installation

We provide solutions whatever the requirements. With all the right equipment for reliable and cost-efficient solutions, supported by unrivalled expertise in high voltage AC and DC cable installations.
