Fully Dynamic Medium Voltage Cables for Ocean Energy, Reliable transmission

The main goal of the SEASNAKE project is to provide a step change in the overall performance of a medium voltage cable system, while ensuring that they are highly reliable and lower the risks of ocean energy installations.

The main goal of the SEASNAKE project is to provide a step change in the overall performance of a medium voltage cable system, while ensuring that they are highly reliable and lower the risks of ocean energy installations.

The specific objectives are:

•Objective 1: To increase the economic viability of OWC systems by reducing the Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) at least 20%

•Objective 2: To proof that 95% availability can be achieved with an improved design for reliability, maintainability and survivability of all cable sub-systems, validated in a relevant environment, reaching TRL7

•Objective 3: De-risk and optimise the offshore operations

•Objective 4: Demonstration of dynamic cable solutions

•Objective 5: Minimise environmental impact
