Havsbaserad kabelbeskyddning (Swedish)
The market for renewable energy and an international power grid is constantly growing. This project has focused on the installation and protection methods for offshore power cables. Long distance cables over e.g. oceans and smaller distances within offshore wind farms.
The focus is on three different materials for the protection task; concrete, cast iron and plastics. These materials have been evaluated in aspect to strength, life-length, reliability and environmental impact.
Snapp products of Sweden AB have developed a cable protective pipe of polypropylene for offshore usage. This product and its opportunities are thoroughly investigated.
