General – Protection Submarine Cable
CRP Subsea has secured a sizable contract from a prominent EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction & Installation) to deliver cable protection services for an HVDC submarine cable project situated in the Arabian Gulf.
Over 6 kilometres of Uraduct will be used at the cable crossings and platform approaches on the HVDC system. It will protect the cables from mechanical damage including crushing, abrasion and over-bending.
CRP has used its engineering proficiency to provide three bespoke Uraduct designs for this project. Two of which are for our bundled Uraduct configuration, giving the customer the benefit of combining two or more cables into one piece of Uraduct. Resulting in notable cost savings for the customer in terms of both product and installation expenses.
The purpose of this HVDC project is to deliver electricity from the onshore grid network to two offshore production facilities. The primary objective of this project is to reduce the use of the Gas Turbine Generators (GTGs).
