Linden Photonics

Linden Photonics introduces hybrid cables to its expanding product line. Building upon its STFOCcables whose pedigree comes from a long history and variety of underwater uses - from munitions tethers to ROV controls to littoral water sensing. Linden’s Hybrid cables combine copper and ? ber elements in a lightweight, yet strong and robust tether cable. Linden can customize your size, buoyancy and strength; from neutrally buoyant designs to extremely thin cables with various conductor offerings and ? ber types available. Linden’s patented cable jacket construction is designed to protect the ? ber in the harsh subsea environment. Our cables are compact and rugged; ? exible and strong. operations during rig move and barge their existing portfolio of specialist

Suite Beka offers high-performance, virtually instant anchor chain catenary simulation. The algorithm computes the physical behaviour of the de? ned an- chor chains taking into account material weight, drag, buoyancy, elasticity, etc.

Also, as it is a 3D algorithm, it takes into account water currents, among others.
