Marlinks wins Blue Innovation Award for CPS monitoring.
On Thursday, December 15, the award ceremony of the Blue Innovation Awards 2022 took place at the beautiful Port House in Antwerp, Belgium. 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).
