Subsea Cables Conference

Subsea Cables Conference

27 March 2018
Venue: Gordon Suite, AECC

The subsea cable industry sector has seen significant growth in recent years as the offshore energy industry evolves and brings opportunity and technical challenge to the cable community.

Offshore wind projects have increased in scale and are being developed in more extreme environments where deeper water, seabed conditions and weather present many challenges. Marine power projects bring other issues to deal with such as strong tidal currents and small operating windows for installation and intervention.

This conference aimed to bring the subsea cable community together to discuss the market opportunity, project developments and technological challenges for the industry, including failure analysis and repair of subsea cables.

Delegates heard from the Industry Experts as they came together to share their experience and knowledge as well as look at the future market opportunity. Vessel owners shared their views on technical requirements and drivers for efficiency as well as investigated the latest vessel specifications. Survey data was discussed so that delegates had an understanding on the importance of accurate data and how it plays an important part in the planning stages, installation & operational phase as well as the removal of seabed infrastructure. Understanding how cables are protected through burial and other methods. What are the main causes for subsea cables to fail, how can they be monitored, are there preventative measures and can they be repaired?
