2500kVA of Power for Subsea Cable Installation

Power Electrics supplied two 1250kVA generators to power subsea cable installation equipment for a global submarine communications company.

The generators provided power for the motor reels that are used to lay the cable and were set to work in ‘Runner – Standby’ configuration, meaning that power would not be lost in the event of a fault with one of the generators.

Bespoke service packs were also provided to enable regular on board maintenance. The generators were loaded on to the boat using dock cranes.

Regional Sales Manager, Lee Sharp, commented on the project: “The success of this project can be attributed to excellent project management and the engineering that went into manufacturing the bespoke generator units. We’re always happy to take on unique challenges that require purpose built solutions.”
