Major engineering effort is required to design a viable power transfer system, both in terms of affordable cost and practical engineering feasibility.
On very long links only DC systems are possible. On intermediate links the choice of an AC or DC system is based on the cost and efficiency of the cable terminal equipment.
The discrete nature of a subsea link gives freedom in design selection of the transmission voltage and current and hence optimise the sizes and weight of the cable and the size and cost of the terminal reactors (AC system) or converters (DC system).
We provide full engineering support and budgetary costing services for subsea systems.
