Nexans Norway is a manufacturer and supplier of advanced subsea products and services for the oil and gas industry.


Nexans Norway was established in 1915 and is today a leading supplier of submarine cables.

We produce and install power cables and advanced umbilicals to transmit power and signals. Our product range also includes special-purpose cables for direct electrical heating of flow lines, for seismic surveys, for controlling remotely operated vehicles (ROV) and fibre-optic cables.

Nexans Norway is part of the Nexans group, one of the world’s leading cable manufacturers, with industrial facilities in 40 countries and commercial activities worldwide.

Nexans’ expertise centre for high-voltage submarine power cables and umbilicals is the plant in Halden, which produces paper insulated high-voltage cables, XLPE insulated cables, DEH solutions and umbilicals. The expertise centre conducts extensive research and development for all our submarine products.

Direct electrical heating (DEH) systems are flow-assurance technology developed to safeguard the well stream through the flowline.
Nexans has supplied more than 3,000km of umbilicals since 1995.
Nexans submarine fibre-optic cables contain enough fibres to meet future bandwidth demand.
Dynamic, torque-balanced and compact Nexans ROV cables are known for their reliability and robustness.
Nexans energy and telecommunications cables are used at gas plants, hydroelectric installations and windfarms.

The plant in Halden was established in 1974 and has been upgraded continuously in keeping up with developments in products for the offshore industry. The high-voltage laboratory in the Halden plant is one of the largest and most advanced in Europe which features state-of-the-art test equipment for high-voltage components according to international standards. In addition, we offer mechanical testing for all cables to verify our numerical simulation.

At our plant for custom submarine fiberoptic cables in Rognan, we have been building specialized telecommunication cables for more than four decades.

The plant has deep water quay access, and produces submarine communication cables, ROV umbilicals, tethers, and seismic and oceanographic cables.
