Unassailable Fit & Forget Pressure Moulded Cable Systems for Hostile Environments

Wave and Tidal Energy Cable Systems

Cresting waves

Reliable offshore performance

Wave and tidal energy offer predictability that wind can’t. SMI offers technology that competitors can’t – a marriage of expertise, trust, and economy of trough-life maintenance that continues to operate in extremely hostile offshore conditions. High performance and reliability are the key factors in wind, wave and tidal platforms – and our cable systems too.

Cable systems, wet and deck mate connectors and glands solutions

Our heritage in manufacturing cable systems for submarines means that we can apply our knowledge to the world of offshore renewables allowing fit and forget data, power, and control cabling. We use the same thermoplastic moulding techniques to deliver long term reliability to wave and tidal platforms and projects across the globe; in Scotland, Pembrokeshire, Normandy, and Cape Sharp in Canada.

These projects have spanned cable systems, wet and deck mate connectors and glands for:

  • LV auxiliary power
  • MV power at 6.6 and 13.8 kV
  • Fibre optic connectors with 12 or 24 fibres contacts
  • Unique MV and Fibre Optic Hybrid Wet Mate

Fit and forget is the name of the game – and all our technologies have been installed, and worked first time.
