Clipper south platform benefits from Tratos oil and gas cables Print E-mail

tratos-Clipper-South-platformLocated off the North East Coast of East Anglia, UK in the North Sea, the Clipper South gas field and its wellhead platform have been developed using Tratos Oil & Gas Cables to the value of several million Euros. 
Clipper South is a substantial gas field with a wellhead platform tied by 12” pipeline to Conoco/BP’s LOGGS Platform from where gas is exported onshore to Theddlethorpe Gas Terminal, 100km away. As part of ongoing development work, including new production wells, Tratos Oil & Gas Cables have been used extensively throughout the field to supply power, control and signalling.

Crane cable contract awarded to Tratos for HPH new Australian container terminals Print E-mail

tratos-brisbane-port-ttFollowing the awarding of the contract to Konecranes to supply Automated Stacking Cranes (ASC) for two Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH) container terminals in Australia, Tratos is pleased to announce its Tratosflex reeling cables have been specified by Konecranes for these prestigious projects.
Tratosflex medium voltage rubber insulated and sheathed drum reeling cables have been specifically designed for high speed reeling and are regularly incorporated into Konecranes ASCs worldwide due to their reliability. Tratosflex features a unique internal cable design, with the structure tightened against the internal relative movement. This prevents the cable from twisting and leading to possible breakage – extremely dangerous when reeling at speeds up to 300m/m

Tratos' super-conducting cable reaches next stage in experimental fusion-reactor Print E-mail

double-pancake-tratosFollowing Tratos’ production of super-conducting cable for use in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor’s (ITER) large electro-magnets, the company is pleased to report the winding has been completed and, for the first time ever, a Toroidal Field (TF) coil full-size super-conducting prototype of the double pancake (DP) is being manufactured. An experimental fusion reactor, ITER will operate with a system of superconducting magnets which relies on the TF coils, the central solenoid, the Poloidal Field coils and the correction coils. 

The TF coils will be operated with an electrical current of 68 000 amps in order to produce the magnetic field which confines and holds the plasma in place in the ITER tokamak. Each TF coil weighs about 300t and is about 16.5m tall and 9.5m wide.

Norwegian rig gets new lease of life with Tratos oil & gas cables Print E-mail

Tratos-Scarabeo5SSDR Scarabeo 5, an Italian built rig designed specifically for Norwegian conditions, has been refurbished using several million Euros worth of Tratos Oil & Gas Cables by Saipem.

Operating successfully on the Norwegian Continental Shelf since 1990, Scarabeo 5 is a 5th generation vessel with large capacity, advanced performance and strong technical capabilities. It features a dynamic positioning (DP) system, allowing drilling at great water depths – down to 2000 meters for this rig to date.

As part of its ongoing maintenance programme, Saipem - a world leader in the oil and gas contracting services sector – has installed oil and gas cables from Tratos to the value of several million Euros. The cables are being used to supply power, control and signalling throughout the rig.
