Marlinks, a world leader in the provision of subsea cable integrity monitoring services, announces its first contract award in the United States. The contract includes the supply, installation, commissioning of monitoring hardware and the ongoing provision of integrity monitoring services, more precisely depth of burial monitoring of the project’s inter array cables.
We are extremely proud that Marlinks won the Blue Innovation Wave award for Cable Protecion System (CPS) monitoring. The aim with this innovation is to closely monitor different CPS and submarine power cables in offshore wind farms by measuring acoustic vibrations along the cables through Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS).
While in Europe we are encountering severe drought issues, in the East Asian region the opposite is happening, namely typhoon season. Luckily it has been a rather calm typhoon year, but did you know that typhoons can technically cause waves as high as ten to twenty meters? This is sufficient to sink a vessel on sea. The high wind intensity and rainfall during a typhoon make it very difficult to perform any maintenance or construction work offshore.
