  • Cable cross-section
  • Conductors
  • Cable insulation
  • Voltage rating
  • Temperature rating
  • Fire performance
  • Standard classifications
  • International and local regulations
What is the IEC 60092 standard for marine cables?

Marine cables undergo rigorous testing and certification processes to ensure the utmost reliability and safety of the installation. These cables must comply with international standards, to guarantee the shipboard safety. The International Electromechanical Commission (IEC) stands out as the world reference for marine cable manufacturing and usage.

What sets marine cables apart?

Marine cables are robust and versatile cables designed to withstand harsh marine environment such as saltwater corrosion, extreme hot and cold temperatures, mechanical stress, and potential fire hazards. Their robust construction, featuring protective layers of insulation, bedding, armouring, and sheathing, shields against environmental threats, ensuring uninterrupted electrical service and safeguarding the vessel and its crew.

What should you consider when choosing marine cable and shipbuilding cables?

The increase of electronic devices on yachts and ships makes necessary to Install shielded and VFD electric cables that will minimize the electromagnetic waves that may cause electrical interference. It is also paramount to install cables designed for marine use that withstand seawater corrosion and UV radiation.

Why is XLPE used as the main insulation material in Marine cables?

XLPE (Cross-Linked Polyethylene) withstands higher temperatures than ordinary thermoplastic polyethylene. It is resistant against deformation and various chemicals, with excellent mechanical and electrical properties. The maximum conductor temperature stipulated by IEC 60092-360 marine cable standard is 90 ̊C.

Why is DNV GL, BUREAU VERITAS, ABS and LLOYDS REGISTER MARINE certification for marine cables so important?

Ship owners, cable distributors, installers and contractors need to be certain that the cables they purchase are up-to-standard and fit-to-use in service. American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Bureau Veritas (BV), Det Norske Veritas & Germanischer Lloyd Maritime (DNV GL), and Lloyd’s Register Marine (LR) are third party independent verification bodies. These companies assess that the cables they certify comply with marine standards and are safe for its installation.
