Wind Energy: Cables & Connectors
As we march towards Net Zero, wind power is continuing to grow in importance – already it’s the second largest source of power in the UK, and large installations are regularly coming online. Offshore adds more complexity in the challenge presented by a hostile marine environment – salt water and inaccessibility for maintenance mean that without careful design and material selection, performance can degrade quickly and costs can increase.
SMI has been manufacturing subsea cabling for 30 years, and we know a thing or two about ensuring power and control systems, fibre optic sensors, monitoring systems, and the cabling and connections they require. We know they need to be built to withstand the absolute worst that the ocean can throw at them, and our experience in supplying the Royal Navy’s submarine fleet is something we bring to our customers in the offshore wind space.
