DNV GL announced the launch of its guideline "Subsea power cables in shallow water renewable energy applications" (DNV-RP-J301), which provides a comprehensive review of subsea power cable practice and advice for managing the risk commonly associated with the cables.

The subsea power cable guideline is a comprehensive technical guide that covers all project phases of subsea cable projects. It applies to the entire length of the cable and its surroundings including assessment of project conditions, planning and execution of works as well as asset management.
