36KV SUBSEA WET-MATE CONNECTORS FOR MARINE RENEWABLES

Connecteur POWER-C

The objective of the POWER-C project is to develop High-Voltage subsea connectors (wet-mate) for Marine Renewable Energies. The concept is based on a development finished in 2013 with a 24kV connection system that features simple terrestrial connectors protected by a housing for subsea application and a dedicated, recoverable connection tool.

The main objective  is to develop a 36kV version of the system and test it in a realistic environment.

The concept developed here allows reducing the costs by using standard, simple terrestrial connectors (with low failure rates) and use a dedicated tool for the connection functionalities. The tool is recovered after each connectionandcanthereforebeused multiple times.
