Power cable repair launch

Industry Database

Irish Sea Contractors, from Co. Wexford, Ireland has announced the launch of a new, patented, in-house developed subsea power cable repair solution and in-house subsea jointer training programme.

This innovative technology addresses the challenges of lifting subsea cables to the deck of the cable ship for repair. The technology is targeted at subsea cable operators as well as turnkey cable repair solution providers operating in water depths of zero to 200m and on cables up to 220kV.

The system is based on the simple premise of replicating a cable repair ship deck, subsea. The unique habitat design can be pre-loaded with all required cable jointing and repair equipment prior to deployment. The system can be used both on-deck for cable repairs when a cable lift is unavoidable, and can be deployed by on-deck cranes to undertake repairs in-situ, subsea.

Working together with the subsea power cable industry, Irish Sea Contractors have developed a comprehensive in-house subsea jointer training programme to smooth the uptake of the subsea cable repair solution.

The cable repair solution habitat was developed in part based on subsea pipeline welding technology from the oil & gas industry, married with over 30 years’ in-house experience in providing bespoke subsea solutions to customers across the marine industry.
