The Anthem of the Seas, a luxury cruise liners built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, set sail with Nexans cables on board. The Norwegian Escape, another new luxury cruise ship currently under construction at Meyer Werft, will also be equipped with Nexans cables. Supplying Nexans cable range for these two vessels is part of a multi-year contract which represents the continuation of a 25 year partnership between the two companies.

Nexans supplies low voltage power cables, instrumentation and control cables and medium voltage power cables, essential for the operation of the cruise liners. Around 3,000 km of cables have been delivered for Anthem of the Seas and some 2,400 km will be supplied for Norwegian Escape.

The cables are halogen-free, fire retardant and exhibit special performances in respect of smoke emission and toxic gases under fire conditions. Nexans developed a new fire resistance standard to meet the demands of the project. The cables are designed to last for the lifetime of the ship which is expected to be around 25 years. The cables will be manufactured at Nexans’ plant in Monchengladbach, Germany, a dedicated global shipbuilding cable factory.

Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas is the world’s third largest cruise ship with a capacity of more than 4,000 passengers over 18 decks. Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Escape has a capacity of 4,200 passengers and is expected to be delivered later this year.

Sven Smid, Lead purchase manager for cables at Meyer Werft said, “We have had a fruitful relationship with Nexans in the past and are looking forward to that continuing it in the future. Nexans understands Meyer Werft and the needs of our projects.”

“Nexans has a long standing relationship with Meyer Werft to whom we have delivered thousands of kilometres of cables during the last 25 years we have worked together. This contract further connects Nexans and Meyer Werft and we are delighted of this successful collaboration,” added Stephane Mortelette, Shipbuilding Segment Manager at Nexans.
