Monitoring critical cable infrastructure to improve offshore efficiencies

Cabling makes up approximately 9% of the overall cost of an offshore wind farm, but subsea power cable failures are frequently reported issues, accounting for a massive 75%-80% of the total cost of offshore wind insurance claims….thanks to DAS, operators can monitor cables more accurately, quantify the risk and respond decisively…minimising downtime and repair costs. DAS is proven in the field to identify subsea cable faults fast….[Fotech Solutions] Helios DAS solution has been used to determine the precise location of a fault along an offshore export cable.
