Industry analyst Westwood says the fast-growing offshore wind energy industry is driving demand for subsea cables.
Vineyard Wind has completed the first step of a multi-phase approval process for a subsea transmission system to interconnect its proposed 800MW offshore wind farm in the US.
The Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) office has issued a preliminary certificate which outlines potential impacts and issues, allowing the agency to move ahead with a draft environmental impact report.

The takeover of a offshore firm with two North East sites has been given regulatory approval.
JDR Cable Systems, which has sites in Newcastle and Hartlepool, is being acquired by Polish company Tele-Fonika Kable (TFKable) in an undisclosed deal.
The two companies have a long history of collaboration, with TFKable providing water blocked power cores for JDR’s cable and umbilical systems.
JDR’s highly technical subsea systems, used in the global offshore oil, gas and renewable industries, allow its customers to power and control their offshore operations, and will enhance the range of cable solutions TFKable can provide to its customers.
Poland-headquartered Group TELE-FONIKA Kable (TFKable Group) has received regulatory approval for its acquisition of JDR Cable Systems (Holdings) Ltd. (JDR), a UK-based supplier of subsea umbilicals and power cables to the offshore energy industry.

Master Thesis - Cable temperature and losses in offshore wind farmsOverall project description
The aim of the project is to provide an understanding of the impact of different types of cable modelling, based on temperature, on array system losses. Detailed project description
Offshore wind farms are becoming larger and are installed further away from shore. At the same time, the cost of electricity needs to be reduced. It is therefore very important to optimise the electrical infrastructure. One aspect of the optimisation is the electrical losses in the power cables, mainly in the in-site cables between wind turbines.
