Marlinks secures first cable condition monitoring contract in the US.

Ghent, Belgium/ Massachusetts, US – 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.

The services selected by the project’s developer will enable the operations & maintenance team to be continuously in control of potential cable risks, from unburied cables, thermal overload to ad hoc required maintenance. Allowing for a risk reduction, a faster response time and planning of mitigating actions to avoid cable failures with the resultant transmission downtime.

The project, located on the East Coast of the United States and the first commercial scale project of its size will be a major boost for the country’s offshore wind ambitions.

“This contract award marks an important next step in Marlinks’ growth” says Roel Vanthillo, CEO and co-founder of Marlinks. ‘…and it confirms that the US will become an ever interesting and important market for Marlinks. We look forward to showing our commitment to the industry by boosting our local presence over the coming years.’

Typhoon season in East Asia

The high wind intensity and rainfall during a typhoon make it very difficult to perform any maintenance or construction work offshore.
