Importance of maritime MRO in naval operations

Growing geopolitical tensions and maritime disputes have increased the need to repair and maintain naval vessels. Regular inspections and timely action can help prevent system and component failure, improve efficiency, reduce costly overhead expenditure, and minimise the need for extensive upgrades.

Along with major refits and upgrades, maintenance and repair operations include hull surface treatments and the application of protective coatings and sealing systems.

Uses of marine cable products and underwater electrical connectors

Marine cable products and wiring systems installed on naval vessels are used to perform a number of functions, such as supplying power and lighting, data communications, fire protection and alarm circuits, and sonar tethers.

The cables, including underwater electrical connectors, are specially designed with high quality and conformity to withstand rough conditions at sea as well as underwater pressure. The maintenance and repair of these cables is essential to prevent breakage and failure, which can damage the performance of equipment and even affect the safety of personnel.

The various types of marine cable products and wiring systems used in the naval sector include:

  • Tactical sonar array cable systems
  • Submarine cable systems for power supply
  • Electrical and power connectors
  • Subsea vehicle cables
  • Deep tow cable systems
  • Halogen-free marine cables
  • Coaxial marine cable products
  • Oil and fuel-resistant cables
