Sharing our industry's unique experience in subsea cables is key to developing innovative solutions for deploying and maintaining cables, which will enhance the sustainability and efficiency of this market.

This unique event will offer insights into the key issues surrounding asset integrity and reliability with highlights from the design, subsea survey, manufacture, installation, protection, repair, operation & maintenance and decommissioning of subsea power cables in the markets of offshore renewables, offshore transmission infrastructure and interconnectors. The power-packed event addresses the sector demand for industry-led engagement and aims to answer the following questions:
  • Is the subsea power cable supply chain geared-up to meet the growing demand across survey, installation and manufacturing of, given the significant growth in international interconnectors and offshore wind ?
