TPU - Thermoplastic Umbilicals

Thermoplastic Umbilicals (TPU)

Thermoplastic Umbilicals (TPU)

We are proud of our position as the world leader in TPU solutions for use in subsea Oil & Gas Exploration & Production applications.

Prysmian has delivered over 1500 km of umbilicals over the past 10 years. Since 2014, we have successfully installed umbilical systems for pre-salt fields that are designed to resist severe mechanical and chemical stresses, high operating temperatures and significant pressures.

Our unique capabilities and expertise allow us to provide and develop a full range of cable components incorporated in our umbilical solutions
– from medium voltage cables to optical fibre cables – designed and manufactured to meet the widest variety of application challenges.  We can also supply multifunctional cables, which integrate power and communication, for special applications.


Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, along with a data bank of high-performance compounds means we can specify a solution that will meet the most demanding requirements and harshest operating conditions.

Our advanced testing laboratories allow us to fulfill any necessary qualification program, including full-scale dynamic testing equipment for our umbilical systems.

We can provide Thermoplastic Umbilicals solutions, including:

  • Chemical Injection Control Umbilicals
  • Electro-Hydraulic Control Umbilicals
  • Electro-Hydraulic Umbilicals for multiplexed systems
  • Production Well Umbilicals
  • Power-Optical Umbilicals
