Odense Maritime Technology A/S in Denmark say that using Roxtec’s online design tool for cable and pipe transits saved them up to 80% time.

Chief Process Officer Niels Ammundsen at OMT explains how important the web-based application Roxtec Transit Designer is in their navy ship design projects. In a recent project, the tool helped them track and follow the filling rate of each cable penetration: “We had 1,000 penetrations and strict margins. The customer required 20 percent capacity for future installations and detailed control of the spare margin along the project. We used Roxtec Transit Designer to make sure we had enough space.”

The OMT team was able to monitor the development and provide real time updates on a day-to-day basis regarding the cable transit filling rate. This reassured the customer who wanted to avoid the risk of having to cut new or modify openings.

They estimate their time-savings to 80 percent when compared to sizing and keeping track of the transits manually. The OMT team uses the tool to make sure they select a sealing solution that complies with all requirements, and to be able to size the transits correctly. Ammundsen says: “We know from previous projects that Roxtec products will do the job and that they have all the certificates needed regarding fire protection and gas-tightness.”
