[Webinar] Maximize UK offshore wind energy output with cable monitoring.
The UK is becoming ever more dependent on offshore renewable energy from the need for our own energy security to the ambitious drive to have 50GW of offshore wind installed by 2030. The reliance on the reliable flow of energy from offshore renewables has never been greater.
The subsea cables, both array and export, remain the weak link in the overall reliability of offshore wind farms and a sudden loss of power from a large windfarm into the National Grid can have a major impact, as was seen in 2019 when Hornsea One suffered a technical fault at the same time as another power plant.
Condition monitoring of these subsea cables, if performed correctly, can give valuable insights to asset owners, and allow them to manage their cables in a much more pro-active way to reduce the chance of a failure, or if one does happen be able to react in a much more efficient manner.

Meet our new Business Developer for the UK and US, Andrew Lloyd
Last month Marlinks had the pleasure to onboard Andrew Lloyd, our new UK Business Development Manager, who comes with a vast experience in the power cable installation, repair and maintenance sector having worked for Global Marine for over 20 years.
From raw data dump to actionable insights
Our goal at Marlinks is to turn data into actionable insights. In a nutshell, this means as a starting point we verify and enhance the quality of the raw data and afterwards we process the data to provide actionable insights to the client. Today we talk with our IT engineer Sander Van De Moortel, who’s working daily on developing and improving our software.
BOPTIC research project
The project idea originated from the understanding that it is crucial to have the knowledge and tools to detect and mitigate failures in cables and foundations of offshore wind farms as this is the key to large cost reductions and to economically viable wind production as an energy source.
