Nexans and Fincantieri enters into Agrement for the supply of Halogen Free shipboard cables through enhanced logistics and Engineering services

Nexans SHIPLINK brand cables will support a variety of power and control functions on two new cruise ships under construction for one of the large player of the market

Paris, (PresseBox) - Nexans, a worldwide expert in the cable industry, has won a 6 million Euro contract to manufacture and supply shipboard cables for Fincantieri, the Italian ship builder. The cables and accessories will come from Nexans' SHIPLINK brand of electrical cables for power, control and instrumentation applications where they offer light weight, easy and quick installation in confined spaces.

The cables will be delivered to Fincantieri's shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, where they will be used in the construction of two cruise ships for one of the large player of the market. The cables supplied are designed under latest IEC standards and are approved by Lloyd's Register. They do not propagate fire if it occurs on board the ship. They are halogen free - meaning they protect people and equipments on board. They adhere to the strictest international standards.

In order for Nexans to win this contract it had to prove it could meet key design, manufacturing, performance, delivery and installation criteria set out by Fincantieri and the ship owner's engineering teams.

It also included proving Nexans can deliver cables to Fincantieri within five days from delivery request through a complete forecast operational performance ; that there is complete traceability of the cable that is used by onboard the ship, right through from manufacturing to delivery; and that Nexans has a key account management team on hand in Italy to meet Fincantieri's needs.

"Complete traceability of cables installed by Fincantieri and its subcontractors was a main issue for Fincantieri. Fincantieri requested us to design a system that would allow them a quick, easy and complete identification, from manufacturing to installation, by using a very limited number of indicators. We have created our logistics system to meet this requirement," says: Vincent Lamblin, Nexans Europe Shipbuilding segment manager. "We are also working closely with Fincantieri's engineering team to help them identify ways in which they can reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of purchasing and installing cables across their other vessels."
