Offshore Renewables

Global Marine has been involved in the installation of fibre optic and power cables for the offshore energy sector since the conception of the industry.

Global Marine installed the cables for the UK's first commercial wind farm at the Kentish Flats, as well as Europe's first at Horns Rev. Helping to harness the power of tides and waves, Global Marine has installed cables for tidal test sites.

With a rich heritage in subsea cable installation and maintenance, Global Marine’s in-house expertise is able to engineer innovative solutions to offer maximum protection.

It is acknowledged across the industry the importance of engineering a subsea solution that lasts and it is unanimously agreed that investment at the early stage of a project can protect against unexpected cost to owners and insurers in the future.

Global Marine’s knowledge from desk top study through route engineering and project engineering maximises cable protection for the life of an offshore energy project.

As a business, we recognise the growing demand for construction and O&M services in the offshore renewable market, the acquisition of CWind in February 2016 demonstrates our commitment to this sector.  CWind complements Global Marine well and provides customers a more comprehensive business offering.
