Asset protection for subsea cables

Reduce the risk of damage to subsea transmission cable infrastructure efficiently and cost-effectively.

subsea cable

Be proactive to reduce the risk of damage

Subsea telecommunication cables constitute a backbone of the global communications network, and subsea power transmission cables play a key role in current and planned transnational infrastructures which gradually will integrate EU power markets and supplies.

Despite regulation of activities in protection zones around cable infrastructures, damage caused by vessels occurs e.g. inflicted by bottom trawling or anchors. The economic and societal consequences can be significant.

The solution for subsea cable protection increases awareness in the surveillance zones, and it provides the intelligence required to optimize preventive measures at sea level and focus inspection and maintenance efforts at the seabed.

The solution to your challenges

Identify and document perpetrators

All activity in the defined surveillance zones is logged which provides the best possible evidence for correlating the occurrence of damages with identifiable vessels.

Minimize the risk of damage to cables

Event detection algorithms enable zone-specific detection of sea level events with probability of interference on the structural integrity of the sub-sea power and telecommunication cable infrastructures. Vessels approaching and entering the protection zones can be automatically notified and warned.

Low operational costs

A high degree of system automation reduces the need for manual operator intervention to an absolute minimum, thereby ensuring low operational costs.

Placing liability for cable faults

Annually an estimated 100–150 subsea cable faults occur world-wide with fishing accounting for nearly half of all reported faults, according to a report by UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre and the International Cable Protection Committee.

When a cable is faulted, the cable company commonly does not receive any notice from the mariners involved and it may be unclear whether those mariners was even aware of the incident.

The substantial effects of cable faults underpin the importance of identifying and documenting perpetrating vessels to provide evidence for correlating the occurrence of damages with the mariners involved.
