Vos Prodect introduces Environmental Seal – sustainable solution for cable hang-off

Vos Prodect has recently released its latest innovation, the ‘Environmental Seal’, a resin-free accessory applied to the Cable Hang-Off System.

This new solution offers an eco-friendly alternative to traditional resin-filled Cable Hang-Off systems while still accommodating the sealing requirements of the IP 44 norm.

As a company that prides itself on innovation and customer satisfaction, Vos Prodect continues to adapt its product range to meet the requirements of the future. Working with clients across the wind, oil, and gas sectors has provided the company with an array of engineering challenges, which they fully embrace to source and specify appropriate solutions.

One such challenge was presented by a world-leading Danish offshore operator who required a Cable Hang-Off Solution that would reduce the amount of air passing through while also accommodating the sealing requirements in accordance with the IP 44 Norm. Vos Prodect responded to this challenge by innovating a resin-free solution accessory for their Cable Hang-Off System, known as the Environmental Seal.

Eco-friendly solution

The Environmental Seal offers a much more eco-friendly solution than traditional resin-filled Cable Hang-Off Systems. The Cable Hang-Off System has an environmental sealing plug at the bottom of the Hang-Off in the J Tube, which clamps both to the outside of the offshore cable that it is securing and also the inside of the entry tube. The innovated resin-free accessory has undergone rigorous verification testing within the company’s facility and is now successfully deployed in offshore Cable Hang-Off contracts, projects in the UK, Europe, and USA.

This new development from Vos Prodect offers potential benefits for the environment as the traditional resin-filled Cable Hang-Off Systems can potentially cause harm to the environment and marine life. The resin used in traditional systems can potentially leak into the sea, which can cause harm to marine life and also pollute the environment.

SDGs

Furthermore, the ‘Environmental Seal’ offers a sustainable solution, which aligns with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 9 focuses on industry, innovation, and infrastructure, and the development of this product aligns with this goal. Vos Prodect’s innovation can help the industry move towards a more sustainable future while still accommodating the requirements of the IP 44 norm.

However, there may be potential challenges to the adoption of this product. One such challenge is the cost. The resin-free solution may be more expensive than the traditional resin-filled systems, which could discourage some companies from using it. Another challenge is the adoption of new technology. Companies may be hesitant to use new technology if they have had success with traditional systems.

In conclusion, Vos Prodect’s ‘Environmental Seal’ offers a sustainable and eco-friendly solution to traditional resin-filled Cable Hang-Off Systems. This innovation is a step towards a more sustainable future, which aligns with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Although there may be potential challenges to the adoption of this product, the potential benefits to the environment and marine life should not be overlooked.
