Aersub, an innovative subsea power cable repair habitat has been launched by Co. Wexford based Irish Sea Contractors.

The system has been claimed to reduce cable repair costs by up to 50% in 0 – 200m water depths and address a growing demand in the global offshore wind power cable market.

The subsea power cable repair solution is specifically designed to enable the repair of faulty power cables in-situ subsea on the seabed.

It provides an alternative means for cable repairs than traditional lift-to-repair solutions. Aersub represents a disruptive evolution in the cable repair market. Irish Sea Contractors has further announced the development of a ‘subsea jointer’ training programme including a ‘Subsea Jointing Academy’ in Co. Wexford to train the personnel required to carry out the power cable repairs in Aersub. The system had been deployed on a demonstration cable repair in the water at Rosslare Europort the previous two days.

David Kinsella, Managing Director of Irish Sea Contractors and joint patent holder for the technology stated at the product launch: “I feel like the team I have coached and poured my heart and soul into these last few years has just won the county GAA finals. I am incredibly proud of all of the Irish Sea Contractors team and family who have made this a reality and look forward to completing our first customer cable repair using Aersub soon.”
