Typhoon season in East Asia.
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.
At Marlinks we propose a two-step approach to protect your critical cable assets against typhoons.
1. DTS technology assists in measuring the depth of cables on a continuous base, allowing the O&M team to plan any maintenance work upfront of delay it after typhoons have passed.
2. Using DAS technology we can measure the impact of typhoons on the subsea cables. Our post-event analysis and reporting provides you with an overview on the impact that your subsea cables have endured during the typhoon and whether any cable risk thresholds have been surpassed during this firstname.lastname@example.org

First impressions of our East Asia Business Developer in Taiwan
Within the APAC region Taiwan is a frontrunner in view of the transition towards renewable energy, having released in 2022 its “pathway to net zero emissions by 2050”. This pathway includes Taiwan plans on introducing 1.5GW of offshore wind capacity per year between 2026 and 2035. Whilst speaking, the auctions (also called round 3 auctions) for these capacities are ongoing. Floating wind will make its entry as well, seen the Bureau of Energy has promoted developers to submit projects including floating technology for the round 3 auctions.
Why submarine cable monitoring matters to insurers
As the need for renewable energy sources increases, so do damage claims of offshore wind farms. Facing the brunt such claims, insurance companies are turning to submarine cable monitoring. Over 80% of insurance claims were due to cable damage. Read more about this topic via our latest blog article.
