Wood Plc have provided subsea cable route engineering services on a number of offshore wind and interconnector projects and have implemented GIS technologies and routing innovations which have reduced risk and brought significant cost savings to asset owners and installation contractors.
One of these innovations is the development of custom routing tools which have allowed the detailed routing and analysis of cables to be carried out quickly and effectively, whilst carefully considering the installation constraints, seabed geomorphology and seabed obstructions and hazards. Case studies from two north sea projects are presented, one demonstrates how Woods detailed routing tools facilitated a reduction in the UXO investigation scope by ~50%, and another, where a boulder clearance scope was optimised by careful planning of suitable clearance tools per route section.
Wood Plc has also developed WebGIS technologies which are being used on major offshore projects to share design, survey and real-time installation information to all interested parties. The technology has huge potential for the subsea cables industry and some of the many possible applications are presented.
