PMA Ventures into Ship Building

Cable Protection - Cable Management - Cable Conduit - Flexible Conduit

PMA Cruise Ship

PMA products are no stranger to heavy industry, salt water and withstanding a bashing from the elements. In fact, that’s one of the reasons we take great pride in our cable protection systems; whether implemented in offshore wind turbines, high-altitude railways or potentially hazardous conditions, they display resistance, durability and flexibility, continually exceeding our clients’ every expectation.

So, it’s hardly a surprise to find that PMA’s latest venture is into the ship building market, with PMA France providing STX Europe, the builders of some of the world’s largest cruise ships, with all their conduit used for liner construction. This is testimony to the quality of PMA cable protection systems, which meet particular marine approval from Lloyds Register and Bureau Veritas for cable protection in ship building. (certificates available on request)

One particular liner which has been fitted with PMA products is the Queen Mary 2, with transport and power company Alstom using more than 133km of CYLT conduit to protect onboard cabling.

We put our approval in this industry down to three things: our high quality components, first class logistics and intensive technical customer support. As part of our dedication to providing specifiers with a design support service, PMA’s selection guide offers specific guidance on products suitable for liner construction to help identify the best systems and fittings to complement and enhance their designs.

Some of the most popular products recommended include PMAFLEX corrugated conduit PCS/PCSL, VOH and VAM/VAML, with PMAFIX and PMAFIX Pro fittings offering a robust design, wide choice of configurations, fast assembly and Ingress Protection (IP) up to IP68 and IP69K.
