Demand for subsea cable lay and trenching services


Pierre Boyde, Commercial Director for Cable Installation and Trenching Services for DeepOcean commented recently: “Following delays on significant wind farm projects and a number of quiet years in the UK renewable industry, we are once again experiencing strong demand for our subsea cable lay and trenching services.”


NATURAL PROGRESSION DeepOcean has over twenty years’ experience of installing and protecting subsea products including; power cables, fibre optic cables, umbilicals, flexible flowlines, pipelines and seismic array cables for offshore oil & gas majors, power & utilities and telecommunication system operators. The offshore renewable industry has always been a natural progression for DeepOcean’s subsea expertise.


ADDITIONAL SERVICES In addition to cable installation, the company offers a comprehensive range of life cycle services to its offshore renewable clients, including, geotechnical and geophysical site investigation services, turnkey cable services (project management, engineering, cable supply, installation, protection, testing and commissioning), subsea inspection, maintenance and repair, through to decommissioning planning and execution at the end of a developments life.


INDUSTRY FOCUS


To date the renewables industry has been focusing on new developments and the installation of wind farms, DeepOcean is expecting an increased requirement for maintenance and repair work in years to come. Following the wind farm assets from installation through operational life cycle, ultimately ending in an environmental friendly decommissioning of exhausted assets is their specialty.


EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE


The company has extensive experience to build upon from being one of the largest inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) contractors in the Greater North Sea. Also the highly successful large power cable installation projects and life of field seismic (LOFS) installation projects, where more than 500 km of cables are installed and 6000 crossings planned and prepared, allowing 4D seismic interpretation and monitoring of reservoir development puts DeepOcean in a unique experienced position for the wind farm cable/umbilicals market.


In recent years DeepOcean has installed more than 800km of power cables as well as 15000km of telecommunication and seismic array cables supporting subsea infrastructure. The company has a significant track record within renewables and interconnector power cable sectors, specialising with the installation, burial of cables, cable fault detection/repair and generic IRM activities on wind farms such as Gwynt Y Môr, BARD, Greater Gabbard, Robin Rigg, Dolwin and Sheringham Shoal in the North Sea to HVDC interconnector cable installation expertise from the Jeju Island project in Korean waters.
