Cable in pipe in a offshore windfarm

Traditional offshore cables are cost intensive and made to order for each project. The Cable in Pipe solution aims at using unarmored cables in a PE pipe, simpler cable fabrication and installation to reduce costs for purchasing and installation of array- and infield-cables in relation to offshore wind turbines by 30% compared to traditionally employed offshore cable fabrication and installation techniques. The presentation will cover the developments so far, the first installation on a commercial project (start of operation in early 2018) as well as an outlook on further developments such as using the concept in conjunction with 66kV multicore cables and further innovations on installation methods.
