Supply of strategic spares for subsea cable repair – UK

Power CSL Scope

Design and supply of medium voltage subsea cable length and repair joints for UK oil and gas platform links.

Background

A major UK oil & gas company identified the need for a strategic stock holding of a subsea cable repair length and joints in order to ensure fast response in the event of damage or failure of their existing platform cable links. The company had previously attempted to source a short length of cable to match the installed design with no success (due to the complex design and short length of cable required).

They contacted Power CSL who designed a suitable spare cable, and via its wide contacts with cable manufacturers around the world sourced a 500 metre length of the spare MV subsea cable. All technical specification, QA surveillance and import activities were carried out by Power CSL. 2 subsea cable repair joints were also provided to the Client.
