Posted by Web Master 6 on February 26, 2018 4:40 PM EST
Consultancy Wood has led a joint industry project to develop guidelines for the stabilisation of submarine cables in the renewables sector on non-smooth and rocky seabeds.
The year-long project, known as Cability (Cable on-bottom stability), also included EDF Energies Nouvelles, RTE, Naval Energies, VBMS, LDTravocean, Bardot Group, Silec Cable and DNV GL.
The guidelines are based on numerical models and laboratory tests performed at the Oceanide facility in the south of France.
