Offshore Energy

Energy Solutions

Fibron provides а wide variety of bespoke product solutions for a diverse range of end user applications. Design, manufacture, testing and termination are all completed in-house, maintaining technical integrity and reliability at all times.

Our preference is to be involved with a project at an early stage. This enables our experienced engineers to collaboratively work with our customer’s engineering, technical, operations and procurement teams.

In this way we can work together to complete the project on time and within the agreed budget. This early-phase teamwork allows us to address the functional and safety aspects of the design. Our service doesn’t end with product delivery – we continue to follow the product through its life cycle with our dedicated after-sales services.


Fibron’s Intervention Work Over Control System (IWOCS) umbilicals are designed to achieve the optimum combination of strength, durability and flexibility whilst keeping the weight and size to a minimum and never compromising on quality.

At the design phase, our experienced engineers will consider not only the specification required when in situ, but also take into account the practicalities of transport and deployment too. This might include the vessel or rig footprints, weight restrictions, special winches, reeler handling systems, handling sheaves, heave compensation and more.

IWOCS umbilicals can be terminated to subsea stab-plates to enable hook-up to the subsea equipment during well intervention activities. Fibron can also offer integration to IWOCs reelers at our dedicated production facility.


Fibron are specialists in the design and manufacture of bespoke Subsea Isolation Valves (SSIVs) which provide critical links from the topside platform to the pipeline isolation valves on the seabed.

Fibron’s umbilicals and cables are designed to meet a project’s precise requirements. Stability, tensile strength, durability and reliability are always designed in as standard.


PLEM to buoy

The umbilical that connects the Pipeline End Manifold (PLEM) to the buoy is typically used to control the transfer of fluids between the subsea pipeline and the tanker.

Fibron’s experienced team will design and manufacture not only the umbilical, but also the bespoke terminations – both Topside Umbilical Termination Unit (TUTU) and Subsea Umbilical Termination Unit (SUTU).

Production control umbilicals

We can offer a range of short to medium length Production Control Umbilicals for use in varying depths of water. Frequently these umbilicals are used to tieback subsea trees to both fixed platforms and Floating Production Storage and Offloading Platforms (FPSOs).

Importantly, we can design and manufacture the jumpers and flying leads that are often associated with the Production Control Umbilicals, and we can design and manufacture bespoke terminations to interface with the existing subsea or topside equipment.

In all, Fibron offers customers the ability to source a complete package, all from one trusted supplier.

Special products

Special products

The offshore energy sector often requires diverse product solutions that don’t always fall into recognised categories. Fibron has a wealth of experience in designing and manufacturing bespoke solutions for a number of different applications.

We are specialists in the development of prototypes, one-offs and short lengths, and we can supply both static and dynamic cables and umbilicals for use in the harshest, most challenging environments.

Some examples of the special umbilicals and cables we have produced include:

  • Chemical umbilicals
  • Gas injection umbilicals
  • ILUC umbilicals
  • High Collapse Resistant hoses
  • Static and dynamic umbilicals and cables
  • Subsea tooling umbilicals and cables
  • Piggy back cables
  • Pile driving umbilicals
  • Power, signal and optical fibre cables
  • Blow Out Preventer (BOP) umbilicals
  • MUX cables
  • ICCP (Impressed Current Cathodic Protection) cables
  • Hydraulic Flying Leads
  • Electrical Flying Leads
  • Jumper umbilicals

Working in partnership

Our design engineers and project managers are vastly experienced and knowledgeable. They not only know all there is to know about umbilicals and cables, they also make a point of understanding how the umbilicals are to be transported and deployed in a specific project.

The available space and weight limit on the deployment vessel, for example, may be a critical factor in how the umbilical is designed and how the reel is specified.

We like to be involved in a project as early as possible, working in partnership with our customers to add value at every stage.

Here to help

If you need an umbilical or cable and can’t immediately see what you’re looking for, please do get in touch. Most of our work is bespoke to the needs of a particular project, so we can’t show all of our capabilities on our website. As experts in our field, if you need a cable or umbilical, particularly for use in a challenging environment like offshore, there’s a good chance that we’ll be able to help.
