Helukabel announced its MULTIFLEX 512-PUR UL/CSA and its shielded variant (MULTIFLEX 512-C-PUR UL/CSA) are now certified according to the Norwegian Electrotechnical Committee (NEK) standard TS 606.

NEK standard TS 606 defines the requirements for halogen-free cables that are resistant to drilling mud.

This approval is found primarily in applications associated with the oil and gas industry. MULTIFLEX 512-PUR UL/CSA and MULTIFLEX 512-C-PUR UL/CSA comply with the more stringent Det Norske Veritas (DNV) ship approval tests for flexible electrical cables (CP-0417).

“Oil and gas production platforms, oil tankers, refinery ships and offshore wind turbines have one thing in common: they put extreme strain on electrical equipment. Therefore, to function reliably, the cables installed must be resistant to oil, petrol, ozone and UV radiation as well as withstand coolants and lubricants or cold cleaning agents.”
