SubCableWorld (SCW), the preferred information resource of the submarine telecom industry, and the Business Network for Offshore Wind (The Network), a non-profit organization dedicated to establishing an offshore wind supply chain in the United States, have announced that they will hold the first conference focusing specifically on offshore wind cable supply chain issues in the United States.

SCWlogoThe one-day event, entitled “Subsea Cables: A Critical Connection,” will be held on October 10, 2019, at the Houston Aquarium in Houston, Texas.

The conference will cover issues related to the development of the US cable supply chain, insurance and risk management, technological advances in cable designs, installation and maintenance and other topics. In addition, SCW will present its demand forecast for the US offshore wind market. Additional details about the agenda will be released soon.

BusinessNetworkOffshoreWind Logo“Cables are a critical component for offshore wind farms, but in the past, they have not always received the attention they deserve,” said John Manock, editor of SubCableWorld. “This conference will put offshore wind cables front and center in the conversation and will present an opportunity for the industry to recognize the importance of developing a domestic cable supply chain.”

Liz Burdock, CEO & President of The Network, said, “Cable damage accounts for as much as 80% of insurance claims at offshore wind farms. Our goal for this event is to focus on the US offshore wind cable supply, best practice installation methods and technological innovations so we start the US industry off right, helping to reduce failures and keeping costs low.”
