WP3: Dynamis Cables, Subsea Connectors and Export System Optimization.

This WP will develop innovative dynamic power cable solutions and corresponding connectors providing an optimized export system for deep water FOW farms. Enhanced designs, modelling tools and assessment on manufacturing processes will enable the integration of technology innovation from TRL3 to TRL5.

WP leader: FULGOR.

The objectives are:

  • Develop novel components (mechanical hang off and breakaway system) to ease reliable and fast Plug & Play operations.
  • Analyse new materials for highly dynamic cable operational performance (mechanical, electrical, anti-fouling and anti-bite).
  • Develop an innovative cable core conductor and outer armouring for 72.5 kV dynamic cable.
  • Provide suitable prototype components for tests in WP5 (cable core conductor, cable outer armouring, connectors, cable jacket and final 72.5 kV dynamic cable).
  • Model and simulate dynamic local components behaviour to validate expected cable performance.
