The application for offshore cables is diverse, they range from shipboard cables which are similar in character to industrial cable to subsea power cables for wind farms, to umbilical cables. They all share a common requirements, they are all expected to safely perform in harsh or very harsh environments.

CableBuilder helps offshore cable manufacturers in many ways. It helps them design the cable including variation of design along the length of the cable. It helps engineers construct a cross section of the cable with all their customer’s requirements however diverse they are. CableBuilder also helps quote the cable, by simulating the manufacturing process using rules to determine the lengths that can be produced, material losses and the number of joints needed. CableBuilder also provides 2D and 3D drawings of the cable with a datasheet of construction and performance.

CableMES is essential in monitoring the manufacturing process. Every measurement taken manually or electronically is recorded against a point along the length of the cable, including any cuts and repairs.
