Sealing solutions for maximum efficiency

Sealing solutions for maximum efficiency

When investing in Canadian oil sands, global oil companies must deal with safety issues and the expensive field labor in the booming Fort McMurray area.

Saving time in the field

Norwegian Statoil chose the right solution at the right time and place. Roxtec seals were quickly installed around multiple cables to protect crucial equipment. Roxtec seals are used to secure power cables going up through the floor into the motor control centers, as well as in control cabinets and junction boxes.

Instead of drilling 50-70 individual holes in each MCC on site, we were able to seal all cables in a few openings.
