Overview

You demand safety, compliance and quality in cost-effective solutions. We deliver.

The Prysmian range of cable systems for midstream and downstream applications delivers innovative solutions for oil and gas pipeline, LNG liquefaction and regasification applications, oil refining, petrochemical and chemical production.

We operate world-wide and support pipeline operators all around the world at LNG facilities in the United States, Australia, North & West Africa, Russia and the Middle East and to support operators in a diverse range of refining, petrochemical and chemical production plants.

From our global manufacturing facilities, we serve you through all stages of a project from design through manufacture and then support you during operations and maintenance activities.

The Prysmian on-shore portfolio:

The Prysmian pipeline range includes fibre optic cables for telemetry, leak detection and threat identification monitoring systems. The range includes solutions for both Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) and Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) applications.
The Prysmian LNG range includes power, control, instrumentation and fibre optic cable systems used in on & offshore LNG liquefaction and regasification plants all around the world. They deliver reliable performance in critical safety and operating applications. The range includes products that can withstand temperatures from + 50 °C to – 50 °C, resist gas migration and damage from fire or chemical attack. The range is designed to comply with all major international standards and is customised to specific requirements.
The range includes HV cable solutions that connect process and utility units to the power generation plant, cable systems for instrumentation and automation, and fibre optic solutions for critical safety and operating applications.
 
Each system is designed to meet the specific needs of a project and always incorporates the highest standards for safety and reliability. They can operate in hazardous environments and resist chemical attack. Their compact designs reduce installation complexity and cost.
