Prysmian Draka IENOPYR-FR - Fibre Optic Cables

The relationship between Prysmian and T&D goes back over 20 years and now in 2014 the Prysmian range of cables distributed by T&D is greater than ever.

It has now been a year (to the day) since T&D added the range of Draka cables to our cable distribution offering. The Prysmian Draka IENOPYR-FR MI-VHH 2G62,5 is a part of the range of fibre optic cables used for ships and offshore units and is a key part of the Prysmian Draka cable range stocked and distributed by T&D.

Since the last century, T&D have distributed the full range of Prysmian cable joints, cable glands, cable cleats and high voltage cable terminations for several decades 

Since the addition of the Prysmian Draka range of cables, T&D have been supporting oil and gas companies, drilling companies, engineering firms, ship yards and owners and utilities with safe, reliable wire and cable solutions.

Prysmian Draka Cable Applications

The range of Prysmian Draka cables has been designed for use as a bus cable for fixed installations on ships and off-shore units in any location and with open decks. The design of the cables dictates that they are not suitable for continuous use within water.
