AgileTek Wraps Up Walney Extension Subsea Power Cable Study

London based AgileTek has completed a multi-phase study on subsea power cables for the Walney Extension offshore wind farm.

The 660MW wind farm is located in the Irish Sea, around 19 km west of the Walney Island coast in Cumbria.

Working directly with project developer DONG Energy, the study involved over 12 months of analysis and engineering work to quantify and eliminate risks to subsea power cables on the project, the company explained.

AgileTek were able to evaluate inter-array and export cable loads, and mitigate risk during the installation, normal operation and extreme storm phases of the cable life-cycle.

Steven Rossiter, managing director at AgileTek said, “Our engineers worked closely with the Walney Extension project team to deliver a comprehensive suite of engineering. We firmly believe that conducting this level of analysis at a relatively early stage will reduce the risk of subsea power cable failures throughout the life of the wind farm.”
