Guide for the Planning, Design, Installation, and Repair of Submarine Power Cable Systems
|Publication Date:||23 September 2004|
This guide presents a list of factors to consider when planning, designing, installing, and repairing a submarine power cable.
This guide has been prepared in the form of a list with brief explanations after each item. This list represents the more important aspects to consider when working on a submarine cable project. As such, this guide should be particularly helpful to the engineer who is occasionally presented with the challenge of working on a submarine cable project.
This approach is used because a comprehensive coverage of the wide variety of subjects involved in a submarine cable project would fill many volumes. Once this list has been used to evaluate a particular project, detailed information can be obtained by searching technical literature and by interviewing experts in the field.
This version of this guide addresses many more topics than the previous version. It also provides brief explanations of these topics to illustrate their relevance.
This guide provides a list of factors to consider when planning, designing, permitting, installing, commissioning, and repairing submarine power cable systems. While many factors are common to both power and communication cables, this guide focuses on power cables that cross seas, lakes, and rivers.
