Renewable Energy Connector and Cable Solutions
Countries across the world are turning to offshore wind and tidal sources to generate low carbon electricity. The marine environment in which equipment is installed is extremely hostile. To ensure continued generating performance and minimise servicing costs, engineering and supporting infrastructure must have a strong marine pedigree.
Robust Cable Systems for Hostile Environments
SMI designs and manufactures connector and cabling solutions that form the central nervous system of offshore power generation equipment. Our technology delivers power export, system control and monitoring data, regardless of the state of the marine conditions in which they are operating.
Our engineers will work with you to find the right solution for your projects, typically including:
- Underwater electrical connectors
- Terrestrial and submarine cables and harnesses
- Water blocked electrical and fibre optic penetrators
- Sensors and monitoring
- Hybrid umbilical cables containing power, signal and fibre optic bundle
- Subsea junction/splice boxes
Our ‘fit and forget’ approach ensures the long-term performance of our solutions, often to the full life of the platform. This avoids complex servicing and replacement programme, reducing marine logistics time and offering considerable through-life economies.

What our customers say
When COVID struck we were in the middle of delivering a very complex project…you stuck to the task and got the job done in the midst of it all, working with focus and diligence in spite of the extra constraints and difficulties that it entailed. We got the project completed and the system installed, the client is extremely happy with the result. Without the dedication and commitment of companies like SMI there is no way this would have been possible – we thank you again for that.
