LS Cable: Certification for cable for oil prospecting ships

With this achievement, LS Cable’ scope of shipboard cable solutions has further widened. At the same time, LS Cable secured a foundation to attack niche markets of special cables for ships together with the existing shipboard cable market.

Developed by LS Cable and succeeding in obtaining overseas certification for the first time in Korea, this product is one of the special industrial cables that have been actively developed thus far. Being fire resistant with flame retardant and low smoke emission properties, this product is also especially resilient against oil and mud for drilling.

Inserted into the seabed together with the drill, this cable must be able to deliver crucial information to the mother ship and therefore secure effective communication in conditions even more hostile than previously encountered. Especially in emergency situations, control of diverse and complicated facilities must be maintained. Therefore, high reliability and efficiency are vitally essential. LS Cable explains that the excellence of the quality has been verified as this product simultaneously received certifications by leading classification agencies.

With the certifications in hand, LS Cable secured the foundation to enter global markets that had previously been monopolized by overseas companies. In addition, by applying the expertise accumulated while developing this product to other special industrial cable products, LS Cable plans to actively advance into other related markets.
