Nexans, the worldwide leader in the cable industry, has completed a 3 million Euro contract for SBM Offshore (Single Buoy Moorings) to manufacture and supply the specialized offshore power, control and instrumentation cables for the conversion of the Espirito Santo FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) vessel serving the BC-10 deep water field development in the Campos Basin offshore Brazil.

Working under a tight delivery schedule, the Nexans factory in Lyon (France) manufactured over 500 kilometers of specialized halogen-free, fire-safe offshore cable for the FPSO conversion project carried out by SBM Offshore in Singapore. The double-hulled Espirito Santo has significant power and heat delivery systems to drive the subsea systems and process crude oil, with a production capacity of 100,000 BOEPD (Barrels of Oil Equivalent Per Day).

Nexans delivered the Espirito Santo cables under ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) approval scheme. They include high voltage 12/20kV rated power cables together with low voltage power, control and instrumentation cables designed specifically to SBM Offshore’s requirements. A key feature is their halogen-free design that ensures fire-safety since the cables will not propagate any fire while producing limited smoke in such fire event. Furthermore, the smoke spread is non-toxic for people working on-board and is non-corrosive so that it does not damage vital electronic circuits, allowing the FPSO safety functions to operate for longer duration in the case of emergency.
