Secure. Stable. Corrosion resistant.

Safe Offshore Systems with Electrical Installation Solutions from Niedax

Experts see the future of oil production increasingly on offshore platforms, where gas and water separation, interim storage, and loading of the oil takes place on tankers. This type of large-scale technology must meet the highest of demands. Not only must electrical components be fireproof and weatherproof, they also need to be resistant to corrosion.
Oil & Gas - Niedax GmbH & Co. KG

The Niedax Group meets these demands with high-quality products Made in Germany, including innovative GRP products made from glass fiber-reinforced plastic, as well cable channels and cable brackets that are able to cope with the weight of the heavy cables. To protect against the influences of weather and aggressive salt water, hot-dip galvanized materials are often used, which can be galvanized in our technology center with a coating thickness of up to 85 µm.

Why Quality Pays Off

A study conducted by the company Senseye puts the number of unscheduled hours of downtime for oil and gas companies at 32 per month, costing companies around 84 million dollars per location. Together, Fortune Global 500 refineries have lost around 47 billion dollars as a result of 213,000 hours of downtime. Unscheduled downtime is expensive. 

Which is why Niedax is committed to producing durable, corrosion resistant products capable of withstanding the conditions at onshore and offshore facilities and to providing advice that fully satisfies the needs of its customers and services that avoid unnecessary downtime.

Crude Oil Remains the Most Important Source of Energy

Sustainability and ecological economic management are among mankind's greatest challenges. Investment in solar and wind energy is only logical, but measured by global energy consumption, crude oil is currently the most important source of energy and the key raw material in petrochemicals. 

The greatest benefit of crude oil is its high energy density, i.e., the energy quantity that can be stored and transported in a defined volume of oil. Without crude oil, gas, and the mineral oil industry, the world economy would come to virtual standstill.

The quantity of oil that can be extracted through conventional oil drilling is limited and the process is becoming increasingly complex. Since the start of the 1980s, the quantity of newly discovered oil has been in decline, while at the same time, consumption has been on the increase. This scarcity is leading to higher prices, and oil and gas companies, such as PetroChina, Royal Dutch Shell, BP, Exxon, Total, and Chevron are having to turn to increasingly cost-intensive methods, including deep drilling and fracking, to tap new reserves.

But whether on land or at sea, major projects need durable electrical installations.
