WHY & HOW
Power Cable related incidents account for 80% of insurance claims and around 60% relate directly to cable damage during construction of offshore windfarm. Thus, cable monitoring is becoming essential. FEBUS G1-R, G1-C, G2 (DSTS) and A1 (DAS) bring not only temperature monitoring over very long distance, RTTR (Real-Time Thermal Rating), shock and vibration monitoring but also a unique real time integrity monitoring during each phases of the cable life cycle: transportation, transpooling, deployment and operation. It is now possible to monitor the bending radius, tension and traction of the cable during installation as well as fatigue for dynamic cable.
FEBUS Optics is part of the AFLOWT project to demonstrate the high survivability of a new cost competitive Floating Offshore Wind (FOW) technology.
