Work class remotely operated vehicles

The Rochester Cable range of working cables comprises main lift umbilical cables, tether cables (heavy and buoyant), and deck cables designed to deliver robust solutions for ROV operations.


Expertise that runs deep

The Rochester Cable range of work class remotely operated vehicles (WROV) cables consists of main-lift umbilicals, both buoyant and heavy tether cables, and complimentary deck cables designed to deliver robust solutions for ROV operations.​

All three cable types can feature high voltage ratings, high-temperature performance, reduced diameter power conductors with flexible conductors, screened instrumentation twisted pairs, and coaxial or databus cables for data and video transmission. ​

A range of single or multimode Fibers in Steel Tube (FIST) are available, and the cable design can incorporate grounding via copper tapes.​

We also offer a range of 44CD (registered) conductors specifically developed for subsea applications that have enabled us to take thin wall, lightweight technology into ROV Umbilical, tethers, and various ocean research applications to deliver lighter, smaller and higher powered cables to the market.​
