Jee Ltd has announced completion of a Centrica Renewable Energy Ltd contract, which saw the subsea engineering and training firm perform a subsea power cable analysis that will potentially reduce future operation and maintenance costs on an offshore wind project.
Centrica Renewable Energy commissioned Jee to identify scenarios that could lead to premature failure of the subsea power cables on the Lynn and Inner Dowsing offshore wind project given different environmental conditions and amounts of seabed scour around the base of the wind turbine foundations. The Jee team then provided critical information about which cable scenarios are at risk of failure. Centrica will use this information to decide if any cables are required to be made safe with remedial works, therefore mitigating the risk of a future failure and avoiding the costs associated with loss of energy production and cable replacement.
