domestic appliances to cars, boats, trains and planes.
These cable systems are equally vital for the successful operation of many different
power generation, the petrochemical industry, shipbuilding and motor manufacture, the
railways, telecommunications etc. All of these industries rely on a vast range of wires and
cables for their controls, applications and data transmission.
NEXANS offers a full range of copper and optical fibre
From the copper cathode close to the parent metal to the
8 mm wire rod, our range is an international standard
used by all wire and cable manufacturers around the
world. Nexans has total control of its production chain,
from the copper ore stage right down to the finished
product - energy or telecom cables.
Designing products like these calls for great rigour and a
knowledge of the existing codes of practice
plus strict adherence to the international standards
established by professional bodies. Nexans also plays a
major part in the

High Voltage Cables
Since generation facilities are often remote, long-
distance high voltage capacity is needed to serve giant
urban conglomerations, whatever the natural barriers:
mountains, deserts or deep seas. Nexans can offer
aerial, underground and submarine solutions
response to these demands.
Medium and Low Voltage Cables

The Submarine Market
Nexans is also one of the world leaders in the manufacture and laying of submarine cables
and in equipment for oil and gas platforms (umbilical cables). The high voltage submarine
market is a major issue at a time when very large projects are back on the agenda. These
projects include underwater links between Morocco and Spain, Norway and the British Isles,
and Australia and Tasmania.
The technical demands in this field are very high given that submarine cables must be capable
of resisting corrosion and withstanding both extreme pressures and great mechanical strain
Nexans supplies two main families of products for the
sector: network cables and cable systems.
Installations that are increasingly easy to expand
combined with products that are increasingly compatible
and simple to use make Nexans a European leader in

THE MAIN ISSUES FOR THE CABLE INDUSTRY TODAY
As a global player in the cable industry, Nexans has a duty to respond across the board to
major issues such as environmental protection and improving safety. In answer to demands
from its clients, Nexans is focussing its research in these two areas and is developing solutions,
products and equipment that match the specific expectations and needs of each sector of
As an industry, the cable market is itself faced with challenges that it must meet, such as
deregulation, consolidation and business revival.

Focus : An 'autonomous power supply' for an off-shore oil rig
Once upon a time, power for deep sea platforms was provided by on-board diesel generating sets. Now
they are powered by renewable hydroelectric energy generated on land - a source of energy that is far
more cost-effective and environmentally friendly. This option involves the use of high voltage submarine
cables which have to be laid on, and ideally beneath, the sea bed to withstand the many types of attack
to which they are subject (anchors, trawler nets, low temperatures, sea currents etc). In addition, these
cables are required to be non-polluting so as to prevent any adverse environmental impact.
In terms of safety, the research work conducted by Nexans produces multiple applications. By
way of an example, halogen-free fire resistant (HFFR) cables are used in construction, modern
ships, tunnels, power stations, oil-processing plants etc. to provide enhanced safety for both
personnel and property:
The need for reliability is greater at times of emergency when power supplies are

Generating electricity from wind is not as easy as you
might suppose. The 'windmills' may look simple enough,
but wind turbines are actually packed with highly
advanced technology that requires complex cabling. In
addition, the turbines are all interconnected to create a
single homogeneous network within a wind farm. The
farm's electric output is then routed by medium voltage
cables to the public grid.
