Typical Challenges for Operators


Do any of these apply to your offshore wind assets?
  • You need engineering expertise for exploring new concepts and designs for bottom-fixed or floating wind turbines
  • Insufficient knowledge in-house about cable to substructure interfaces, substructure to seabed interfaces, or structural dynamics
  • You lack the tools and expertise necessary to ensure a robust cable design


We provide dedicated expertise for concept development and detailed engineering of offshore floating wind, as well as system design and analysis of inter-array and export cables.4Subsea has unique experience with structural assessment, damage investigation and monitoring of submarine power cables and umbilicals. We offer advisory services to design, fatigue, testing and integrity management. Furthermore, we provide expert advice on system cable design for bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind turbines and offshore substations.
