Tags: Press Release, Product Release, Projects

Asia One Marine has introduced its Fishcable this year, which aims to reduce pollution caused by ropes greased with petrol based or synthetic chemical greases.

The company says that when large fishing boats use wire ropes on decks and in the sea, their catch may touch the wire ropes of the nets and seines.

Fishcable is entirely manufactured with non polluting grease, formulated in France. From string stretching to strand forming and wire rope braiding, a special food grade Fishcable grease is used at every step of the production, ensuring a good lubrication and an environmentally safe product.

This grease is food grade (H1) and its stains are easily removed, with substantial benefits fo ...

The small and highly specialized high-voltage submarine cable market is expected to see significant growth in the coming years. National governments and regional organizations are accelerating efforts to build offshore renewable power generation facilities, link remote landmasses, and interconnect their national grids. According to a recent report from Pike Research, a part of Navigant's Energy Practice, more than 1,100 new submarine electricity cable systems are planned from 2012 to 2020.



This level of growth will be impossible to realize, however, without a major expansion of supply channels, the report concludes.
