Should the offshore wind industry be using pre-terminated cables?
Wed 26 October 2016, 10:15 – 15:00 BST
Pre-terminated cables have been deployed for many years in other industries including telecommunication. These cables have yielded significant advantages in terms of the required installation time, labour skills and cost. However, questions still remain around the risk involved and whether a future offshore wind market exists.
This workshop will gather industry professionals from across the supply chain to discuss the feasibility and demand for pre-stripped and pre-terminated array cables through a number of presentations and interactive discussion sessions.

The Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) is Carbon Trust's flagship collaborative RD&D programme between the Carbon Trust and nine offshore wind developers set up in 2008. The current phase of the OWA joint industry project involves nine offshore wind developers; these OWA partners account for 76% of Europe’s installed capacity.
