Drum Service

Nexans drum service - an innovative and environmental friendly return service for used NX drums

Nexans drum service is an innovative and environmentally friendly return service for used NX drums including sizes from NX12 to NX26-R.

The drum service includes return of used drums from the customer to the Langhus plant, where they go through a process of being repaired. Damaged drums and remnants of cables are destroyed.

The drums are optimized to increase the capacity and longevity. Nexans wishes to increase the number of drums being returned and re-used, and the strengthened NX drums are a good contribution in this direction.

Nexans guarantee a deposit for the NX drums if they meet the given conditions and the return form is filled out.


  • Environmentally friendly - by returning and re-using the drums several times.
  • Easy to return - we pick up your drums, with or without cable remnants.
  • Reduced cost - longer lengths give fewer drums at the construction site, fewer cable remnants for scrap and fewer joints. 
  • Longevity gives fewer wooden drums in circulation.
  • Gives up to 120% reduction of wood.
  • A high share of return (free) with good deposit avoids littering and burning.
  • Free return of cable remnants on drum ensures safe recycling of cables.
  • Longer standard lengths on optimized drums give reduced transport costs and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Return with a deposit only applies to NX drums from Nexans, and with return from an existing customer.
