DeRegt works with each individual client to provide the perfect cable solution for their specific requirements. Each cable system by DeRegt is custom-made and this does not only apply to the cables themselves, but the terminations as well. DeRegt is able to design the termination to adapt to specific circumstances and to think outside the box to find the right solution for every situation. From deep undersea to high in the sky, terminations can be grouped into a few types which share similar features.
Aker Solutions came to DeRegt with an unusual request. Aker is responsible for the maintenance of a floating concrete tension-leg platform, installed over a subsea template with 56 well slots. The rig is named Heidrun, and produces oil and gas from a depth of 2,300 metres. It is located about 200 km off the middle of the Norwegian coast. The unusual question was: can you reverse-engineer the same cables from 25 years ago, as a replacement for the next 50? We spoke to Roger Sand at Aker Solutions to find out more about this unique project.
