Wire mesh cable tray and ladder for the Queen Mary 2, the largest and most expensive passenger liner built, has been supplied by Cablofil.
The tray, 54mm deep and ranging in width from 50 to 500mm, supports cables throughout the £430m ship. In the machinery rooms it carries power and data cables. Elsewhere, it distributes electricity from the QM2’s power plant. It routes cables from a central spine to all corners of the vessel including the cabins, which are container-sized modules that were assembled off site and slotted into the ship’s structure.
Cablofil tray also supports power and data cables behind false ceilings in the QM2’s communal areas, including the restaurants, galleries, theatre and a sea-going planetarium.
The vessel was under construction at Alstom’s Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in saint-Nazaire from the end of 2000.
