Power Cable Maintenance & Repair

Rapid mobilisation to minimise system downtime and loss of revenue

It is imperative that system downtime is minimised and that a broken segment of cable is repaired in a timely manner.

The significant cost of service interruption, particularly within the offshore wind industry, can rise into the tens of millions per month, so CWind is passionate about supporting the wind farm operators and owners to provide a cost effective and responsive maintenance solution.

CWind can provide a variety of maintenance options that reflect individual requirements for quality, reliability, responsiveness, dependability, and speed of repair.

It is estimated that there will be approximately 20,000km of power cable installed in northern European waters by 2030, with the expectation of between 10 and 40 large-scale cable repair projects in the North Sea per year.

With costs having the potential to escalate rapidly, locating and rectifying the fault as soon as is possible, is critical.

 

CWind’s maintenance teams and vessels are able to mobilise at speed, keeping downtime to a minimum. In 2017, cable installation and maintenance vessel the C.S. Sovereign, a capable ship with experienced crew, mobilised within a single week to complete back to back power cable repairs, the first one completed in just four weeks.

OUR KEY CAPABILITIES:

  • Rapid mobilisation from key locations around the world
  • Minimised downtime
  • Fault finding and cable retrieval utilising ROVs
  • Fault repair
  • Cable redeployment, installation and reburial if required
  • Remedial burial works to ensure ongoing protection
  • Cable spares storage
