Egyptian megaproject

Cable seal manufacturer Roxtec secured a prestigious role on the BP West Nile Delta international project involving gas production in Egypt. Roxtec UK managing director Clive Sharp said the firm has supplied a range of specialist transits to secure cable entries, building wall penetrations and onshore facilities across the site.

“Roxtec is supplying a range of products for this major development which has been designed to help Egypt meet growth in local energy demand,” he explained. “This includes galvanised bolted Ex frames along with multi-cable and pipe transits. A core focus for this project centres on electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) protection. Our solution involves the installation of electromagnetic compatibility EMC transits. These products provide safety and protection against electromagnetic interference and lightning strikes. The system is approved by all major classification societies and used in many industries and applications.

“Roxtec’s bonding and grounding (BG) sealing solution was also used to reduce cable diameters entering the various buildings whilst providing signal screening. This cable entry system is typically used for sealing large quantities of metal clad, armoured or shielded cables in areas with limited space.”
