Like every company, we’re in business to make a profit. But not at any expense. And certainly not at the expense of our employees, assets, the environment and communities. So how do we work? What principles do we live by? We covered them all in our recent Health and Safety Day. See for yourself by watching the video.
A central component of our cables is a stranded copper wire, which is able to conduct electricity. Around it we extrude a continuous layer of plastic to isolate the copper from its surrounding environment. Twisting this together with other components, forms our custom designed cable.
The plastic has to be a good insulator and thick enough to prevent the copper from shorting to the outside world. Many of our cables operate in deepwater under high pressure, so we need to make sure that our insulation is sturdy enough to keep the water out. Contamination in the plastic will cause the insulation to deteriorate over time and eventually fail.
All change at DeRegt! Following a period of profound organisational transformation for DeRegt, we have now appointed a new managing director. His name is Daniël Ruiter and we had the pleasure of asking him SIX QUESTIONS below. Find out more about our new leader below.
