SCARGO: Installation of submarine cables with remote vehicles

Scargo

PROBLEM/OPPORTUNITY

The installation of inter-array cables accounts for 4% of CAPEX costs of an offshore wind farm. A significant part of these costs relate to the mobilisation of large boats specialised in the installation of cables and the staff of these vessels and the synchronised work of the reception of cable on the turbine platforms. ​

Additionally, these installation procedures are technically complex, highly sensitive to the weather and carry high technical risks of surface cable routing toward the bottom of the sea, the cost of which is not included in the LCOE.
