Draka provides subsea power cable for wave and tidal at EMEC

Draka Offshore will provide subsea power cables for wave and tidal power testing the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney, UK.

Draka will deliver approximately 11 km of 20 kV subsea power cable for EMEC’s tidal and wave energy test sites in Orkney.

The cables will be used to extend the EMEC test sites to create three new grid-connected berths, two at the tidal test site and another at the wave test site.

“The selection of Draka for providing subsea power cables further validates the quality and performance of our products in extreme under-water conditions, ’’ says Martin Dale, Commercial Director for Subsea at Norwegian Draka Offshore.

“Our subsea cables have delivered outstanding performance in oil and gas which has helped us quickly gain status as a reliable supplier in the offshore renewable energy field.”
