Complete Cable Care

Your risk reduction & repair partner. Rapid mobilisation to minimise system downtime and loss of revenue

AN END-TO-END TURNKEY SOLUTION FOR POWER CABLE MAINTENANCE & REPAIR

Complete Cable Care provides you a single contracting entity, saving internal management fees, reduced risk, interface management and seamless execution of projects.

From effective cable installation, data management, cable monitoring and risk assessment services through to scheduled and unplanned maintenance and repairs as well as asset storage, Complete Cable Care provides a proactive and responsive solution for asset management.

Complete Cable Care can provide a variety of maintenance options that reflect individual requirements for quality, reliability, responsiveness and speed of repair.

It is estimated that there will be approximately 20,000km of power cable installed in northern European waters by 2030, with the expectation of between 10 and 40 large-scale cable repair projects in the North Sea per year. The significant cost of service interruption at an offshore wind farm can rise into the tens of millions per month, so Global Offshore is passionate about supporting operators and owners to provide a cost effective and responsive maintenance solution, locating and rectifying the fault as soon as is possible.

INTRODUCING OUR NEW REPAIR BARGE, THE ASV PIONEER

The ASV Pioneer is the newest addition to our fleet and is unique to the industry as a vessel dedicated to the power cable repair market. The vessel is on permanent standby at Global Marine Group’s offshore service hub in Blyth, ideally placed to respond to projects in the North Sea and further afield.

The ASV Pioneer is a uniquely versatile vessel that is fully mobilised with a flexible power cable repair spread, capable of undertaking power cable repairs, shore-end replacements, cable transportation and new cable installation operations from grounding out on the shore approach to a water depth of at least 50m. The 8-point mooring system gives the vessel outstanding position keeping capabilities and the 2,000te carousel and associated equipment gives the vessel extended potential for the most complex cable operations. The high state of readiness of the ASV Pioneer ensures a quick and efficient response to any emergency cable repair operations.

REDUCED DOWNTIME WITH RAPID RESPONSE TO UNPLANNED MAINTENANCE

Against the market average of 100 days, Global Offshore’s Complete Cable Care solution reduces downtime by approximately 60%.

The significant cost of service interruption, particularly within the offshore wind industry, can rise into the tens of millions per month, so Global Offshore is passionate about supporting wind farm operators and owners to provide a cost effective and responsive maintenance solution.

MINIMISING INTERRUPTIONS EVEN FURTHER WITH UNIVERSAL 150KV HV CABLE JOINTS

Typically an OEM HV cable manufacturers joint can take up to seven days or more to install at sea and have an order lead time of over 12 weeks. As part of our Complete Cable Care service, Global Offshore stock universal HV power cable joints. These universal joints are readily available to rapidly mobilise should you not have stock of on OEM specific joint, or the jointers required to install it. The universal HV power joints are specifically designed to minimise at sea jointing time, typically reducing joint time by around 50%  to around 3.5 days, thus reducing the power transmission downtime and further minimising the required weather window in the event of a fault.

The joints are designed to be compatible with the majority of HV AC export cables currently deployed regardless of the cable manufacturer, conductor material or cross section area and are also able to joint two dissimilar cables. As part of the Global Marine Group, Complete Cable Care has access to some of the best cable jointers in the marine sector, able to respond quickly and efficiently to cable repair needs.
