Carbon Trust Opens Subsea Cable Tenders

The Carbon Trust has launched two tenders for subsea cables as part of its Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) program.

The first tender calls companies and consortia to carry out a study to evaluate the need for fault detection and monitoring on the inter-array system and how it would work with other systems and site processes to minimize generation downtime.

It also focuses on examining the potential for online monitoring systems that offer real-time identification of changes in the inter-array system.

The deadline for submitting applications is 4 July by 13:00 BST.

The second tender seeks companies and consortia to undertake a study looking into improved cable designs for bottom-fixed offshore wind farms that are fit-for-purpose and optimized for their operating environments.

The key objective is to evaluate and recommend potential improvements to subsea cable designs for bottom-fixed projects and develop specifications of possible future cables.

Additionally, it will investigate the technical feasibility of surface-laid subsea cables and develop relevant standards and best practice guidelines for improved cable handling.

The closing date for submitting applications is 11 July by 13:00 BST.
