When it comes to the design, manufacture and supply of custom-engineered, speciality, dynamic or static cable solutions for use in subsea applications, DE REGT Marine Cables is one of the leading names in the global industry. The company, which has more than 90 years' experience of technological innovation and advanced cable design, is the supplier of choice for leading clients in oil and energy, defence, seismic exploration and scientific market sectors worldwide.
DE REGT Marine Cables has a history of excellence in cables, originating from its renowned offshore cable business with JDR Cable Systems. DE REGT as it is today came into existence in May 2011, and now, three years later, it has become part of Sercel.
A new division created by the move, DE REGT Marine Cables was established to focus predominantly on the design and production of marine cables for the subsea, geophysical and defence markets. The business operates from its facility in the Netherlands with a strong team of engineers and innovators that are capable of working on conceptual design studies while collaborating with clients at a project level to translate initial concepts into working products.
In terms of the oil and energy field, DE REGT Marine Cables is the leader in providing engineered umbilical solutions that meet a wide range of oil, gas and renewable project requirements. Through its extensive experience, the company is familiar with the most demanding design challenges that this sector presents, and accordingly is able to offer a range of custom-built systems for installation at ever-increasing water depths and in increasingly hostile environments.
In order to survive these conditions, DE REGT Marine Cables' products combine maximum strength with minimum diameter to enable efficient data and power transmission while surviving repeated duty cycles of extended time periods and in harsh conditions. For the oil and gas sector, DE REGT chiefly offers solutions for ROVs (work-class, trenching or inspection), offshore service companies (sampling, drilling, pipe-laying and production) and monitoring (sensors/advanced communication).
While the ROV market is a significant proportion of DE REGT Marine Cables' work, it is also known for producing reliable and effective surface-to-sea-floor multiplex (MUX) control cables that are used for deepwater blow-out preventer (BOP) applications.
DE REGT Marine Cables are the natural choice for conducting business with safety and quality in mind. Its BOPMUX cables are manufactured from high-quality raw materials, with in-process testing and evaluation throughout the entire manufacturing process to ensure the highest standards. The company conducts regular and extensive FAT testing on all of its cables before shipment. Incorporating the latest technology, the MUX cable design uses fibre-optics for data transmission and is field proven to offer an extremely long mean time before failure, often requiring little or no intervention during its service life.
As the oil and gas industry continues to push the boundaries in terms of exploration, collecting seismic data about potential reserves becomes increasingly important, and, in the field, DE REGT Marine Cables' products are playing a key role.
Manufactured to exacting standards, the company's custom-engineered marine seismic-data-acquisition cable systems and products are currently in use around the world on all major seismic and survey fleets, in some of the most challenging operating environments.
With significant investment in enhanced design, manufacturing, research and testing facilities, DE REGT is demonstrating its commitment to responding to industry challenges and technological demands, stretching the limits of depth, temperature and harsh environment capability. At the moment, DE REGT is testing alternative types of copper that will improve durability; novel steel armour wires and alternative strength members using aramid fibres to cope with hazardous fluids; and innovative insulation materials to withstand high temperatures.
DE REGT is a technology partner and fundamental to this ethos is its commitment to share lessons learned, and exploit new technologies and products across all subsea sectors to the benefit of all DE REGT clients and technology partners.
