Fiber optic sensing examples and technical papers.
AP Sensing’s fiber optic sensing technology was selected to monitor and protect the world’s longest XLPE subsea power link, the NordBalt Link. Our reliable and robust Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) system for power cable monitoring is monitoring parts of the link, which has a total length of 450 km. The cable link was produced by ABB Karlskrona and comprises of a 400 km submarine route. The 300 kV DC subsea cable will connect to deliver power from Sweden to Lithuania with a total capacity of 700 MW, providing a significant portion of the Lithuanian population with energy.
