Submarine Fiber Optic Cables

Image

Our range of cables for submarine deployment is based on extensive experience in submarine cable projects around the world, from design to project management and installation. All cables use unitube loose fiber design for depth down to 3000m.

All cables have steel wire armoring in one or several layers and a stainless steel tube to provide superior mechanical and water-blocking properties, and counting direction.

The cables are resistant to tensile forces and impact caused by anchoring, recovery operations and handling.

TOL 401 7005

GRHLV Duct cable for submarine electroding, TOL 401 7005   Data Sheet
The land cable links the beach manhole and the central office. The cable consists of up to 4 loose tubes with 12 fibers per tubes. 2 copper conductors with a resistance of 12 Ω.

  • Design: Duct cable
  • Type: Loose tube and Cu conductors
  • Capacity: 24 and 48 fibers, with 2 conductors

 


GJMLTV, 10-ton SA, TOL 404 1050   Data Sheet
Single-armored, unitube cable where moderate protection is required in submarine applications. This design includes a hermetically sealed stainless tube (3.7mm outer diameter). Inside the tube the fibers are free to move in the thixotropic water blocking compound. The tube is protected by a polyethylene sheath, one layer of galvanized steel wires and wrapped in a layer of polypropylene yarn. The unitube technique results in a high packing density. This permits a small outer diameter and easy handling.

  • Design: FIMT, single armor
  • Type: 10 ton
  • Capacity: 24 and 48 fibers

 


GJMLTV, 15-ton DA, TOL 404 1051   Data sheet
Double-layer armored, unitube cable where high protection is required in submarine applications. This design includes a hermetically-sealed stainless tube (3.7mm outer diameter). Inside the tube the fibers are free to move in the thixotropic water blocking compound. The tube is protected by a polyethylene sheath, two layers of galvanized steel wires and wrapped in a layer of polypropylene yarn.

  • Design: FIMT, double armor
  • Type: 15 ton
  • Capacity: 24 and 48 fibers

TOL 404 1080 

GJMMLTV, 10-ton SA, TOL 404 1080   Data Sheet
Single-armored, unitube cable where moderate protection is required in submarine applications. This design includes a hermetically sealed stainless tube (3.7mm outer diameter). Inside the tube the fibers are free to move in the thixotropic water blocking compound. A copper foil is placed around the steel tube. The tube and copper foil is protected by a polyethylene sheath, one layer of galvanized steel wires and wrapped in a layer of polypropylene yarn. The unitube technique results in a high packing density. This permits a small outer diameter and easy handling.
