2H, an independent advanced systems engineering provider, has developed a floating offshore wind dynamic inter-array cable system qualification framework in collaboration with ORE Catapult on behalf of the Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence.
 
The technology qualification framework will underpin a dynamic cable systems technology development and qualification programme launched by the Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence. The scope of the framework includes dynamic power cables themselves, up to 132kV, as well as ancillary components such as electrical quick connectors, bend restrictors and cable protection systems. Much of the technology proposed for floating offshore wind has evolved or been adapted from that used in the fixed wind and oil and gas sectors. However, the transition from static to dynamic cables and low voltage to medium and high voltages is moving the industry beyond currently qualified technologies. This has created the need for a robust qualification programme to assess, benchmark and support the development of dynamic cabling systems. 2H is using its experience with the mechanical and electrical qualification requirements from CIGRE and IEC, and other best industry practices from API, ISO and DNV to develop a structured framework.
