Helkama Marine and Offshore Cables and heat and oil resistant cables
Helkama Marine and Offshore Cables ( IEC 60092)
Helkama Bica is a Finnish company specialized in the manufacturing and development of Marine and Offshore Cables. Our solid experience in cable manufacturing goes back more than 50 years.
The high technical quality level is a result of a continuous development and research process, supported by the feedback and collaboration of our customers. Using the latest high technology, we have been able to reduce to a minimum level, cable weight and size, still keeping high quality and enabling easy and fast installations.
We have decided to produce only halogen-free cables because they remarkably improve the fire safety of the ships and offshore constructions respecting the safety guidelines. They do not emit corrosive toxic fumes or thick smoke that can damage onboard equipment in case of a fire.
The halogen free range of cables includes both flame-retardant / fire-retardant (IEC 60332-3A) and fire-resistant (IEC 60331) cables.
Helkama marine cables are approved by all major certification societies.
The offshore and marine cables can be requested in FLEX version from the section 16 mm2 on, for fixed installations. In case of ultra-flexible cables for mobile installations see the H-FLEX cables page.
As an independent, specialized company, focusing on service, we have been able to grow steadily by quickly responding to our clients' needs. Our delivery times are short, backed up by an extensive stock of cables, enabling us to deliver on time and keep our clients in the world satisfied.

Heat and Oil Resistant Cables (IEC Marine and Offshore)
These cables are halogen free, flame Retardant and low smoke cables for Marine, Oil, Gas and Petrochemical applications, where environment temperature may exceed +80°C, which is the limit for traditional IEC 60092-cables. These cables have excellent resistance against weathering, ozone, UV-rays and Oil / Diesel oil.
The offshore and marine cables can be requested in FLEX version from the section 16 mm2 on, for fixed installations. In case of ultra-flexible cables for mobile installations see the H-FLEX cables page.These cables are approved by all major certification societies.
Typical application of these cables: Ships Engine Rooms.
- Fixed installation -40ºC to +120ºC
- Occasionally moved -20ºC to +120ºC
- Maximum conductor temperature +120ºC
