The safety requirements on board a passenger ship are extremely high. That is why when the AIDAluna cruise ship was being built by Meyer Werft GmbH in Papenburg, Germany, Lapp’s ÖLFLEX FD 820 H and ÖLFLEX FD CLASSIC 810 connection and control cables were selected for the lighting. SKINTOP cable glands were also used to ensure secure connections between ÖLFLEX FD CLASSIC cables with housings and control cabinets.
The cables are flame-retardant according to IEC 60332-1-2, which is an important safety requirement. They are also highly flexible and, with their tiny width, were practically predestined to be fed through the tight pipes and passages that are used in shipbuilding. The lines are also extremely suitable for use in moist areas due to their low-adhesion surface and SKINTOP cable glands.
The flexible ÖLFLEX FD CLASSIC cables are not only used in shipbuilding, but are predominantly used in energy supply chains and mobile machine components, such as assembly lines. Thanks to adhesion-free surfaces, these branded products are also suitable for damp or wet environments.
Lapp cables can be found in an array of industrial applications, from stage equipment at the Rolling Stones tour and new opera house in Beijing, to ancient pyramids and modern airport departure lounges, to the newest container cranes and the largest wind turbines.
