New product sheet for Bezinox® armouring wire
Bekaert plays a role in offshore wind strategy to go for a carbon-neutral Europe
The European Commission has identified wind energy as the dominant power generation technology. With a long-term history in sub-sea armouring solutions for electricity export cables, Bekaert sees value creation potential in renewable energy business.
Based on deep market & customer insights from cable producers, designers, TSO´s and wind farm developers, we understood what the challenges for this market are and how we could develop a product and service, which can significantly help these market challenges.
To cope with these challenges Bekaert has developed a non-magnetic galvanised stainless steel armouring wire –Bezinox®, which eliminates armouring losses.
Galvanised stainless steel has several important benefits of which non -magnetic behaviour is the most important one. Stainless steel has a low permeability, which reduces energy losses in the armouring by the cable’s magnetic field. Consequently, this property significantly increases the cable’s efficiency without needing to interfere with the cable design, as is the case with other armouring solutions.
A heavy zinc layer on austenitic steel offers an excellent resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion, making it perfect for marine applications. The combination of these features offers a much more predictable and reliable coating lifetime and performance compared to uncoated austenitic stainless steel solutions. Even when the zinc layer gets damaged, the surrounding zinc will act as a sacrificial anode and protecting the underlying stainless steel.
This makes Bezinox® armouring wire an ideal solution for all your submarine power cables.
