The Top 3 Ways TPC Wire & Cable is Serving Shipyards

Posted by TPC Team on May 7, 2018


It’s no secret that the shipyard industry is full of harsh conditions that threaten the operational life of traditional electrical wire and cable.

A lot of action is happening in the yard – from welding to building cable connections to running cable for both short-and long-term power. Not to mention, all of this is happening while surrounded by water, exposed to extreme temperatures, and weathered by the daily elements.

It's a lot when you’re on a tight schedule and need to spend your valuable time on ship repairs and maintenance.

Here are 3 ways we’re dedicated to serving shipyards everywhere:

1.) We promote safety and give you back time.

By taking the time-intensive labor out of unsafe, on-site cable builds, we help free up your crew to address other critical work that keeps your project on schedule. Added bonus is, our work supports prevention of premature cable failure, which is also a time robber.

We properly strip cables back and have our own patented IP69K-rated Molded Locking Connector Assemblies for added safety and plug-and-play capabilities. In other words, we help keep the environment out so you don't have to worry about it.

Plus, our products carry tested and validated certifications with the most reputable agencies, so you know you're making a good investment.

2.) Our cable is reusable. Yes. Reusable.

We know you're used to throwing away cable after every project. Why? Because in a tough environment, it simply doesn't withstand more than a single use. Ours can.



3.) We have a lot of value-add services.

  • Inventory management - We know how valuable your space is, so the inventory is ours to carry. We have an on-site warehouse full of in-demand products. Check with us for availability on weld assemblies (taper and ball nose), portable cord, ship-to-shore power cable. What else do you need? Stringer lights? We carry those, too!
  • Custom coloring and printing - Do you have a brand that you have to stick to? A color, or identification number you use to differentiate your cables? Directions for your crew to follow? We like consistency, too, so ask about these services and if they're the right fit for you.


Still not convinced? Our designs are rugged and engineered for being subjected to whatever the elements throw into the mix: Impact, abrasion, flexing, tension, chemicals, extreme temperatures. Even, flame. See for yourself.

We have a team of problem-solving innovators who are ready to talk about your challenges and to develop a creative, customized, longer-lasting solution.
