SUB-DUCT™ Cable Protection Systems are designed and developed to protect fibre optic cables, power cables, umbilicals, flexible flowlines, rigid flowlines, hoses and bundled products from abrasion and impact.
SUB-DUCT™ Cable Protection Systems protection sleeves offers excellent abrasion and impact resistance as well as environmental protection to umbilical’s in locations comprising rocky seabed’s, pipeline and cable crossings. The cable protection system is a polyurethane split arrangement. Each section overlaps the next and is held in place by a field proven strapping system (various options are available). Within the overlapped section are interlocking profiles that provide axial stiffness holding each element together. This provides continuous protection over the full length of the assembly. In addition, each module incorporates a radial keyed arrangement, which increases the rigidity of the system against compression. The straps that are installed on the installation vessel require a tensioning tool that is supplied by Subsea Energy Solutions. Each strap can be fitted in under 5 seconds. The protection sleeves are manufactured from polyurethane to provide a robust, wear resistant assembly. As standard, cable protection sleeves are supplied with a span length of approx. 1,000 mm to ensure that the sleeves are easily handled offshore, however bespoke lengths are produced to suit specific project requirements.
