Whether protecting against copper cable theft, data interception, subsea anchor drag, or locating cable fatigue and break down – optimise your cable network with technology that delivers the information you want to know, and only reports on integrity issues and actual threats to your cable infrastructure.   

 

Infrastructure

Cable Monitoring Offshore

Cable Monitoring Offshore

As the demand for green energy continues to grow, offshore energy operators have an expanding network of subsea power cables to monitor and maintain. With cable outages disappointing customers and costing operators a great deal of time and money, preventing cable failures, and quickly identifying and planning for the repair of damage is vital.  

Cable Monitoring Onshore

Cable Monitoring Onshore

Increasingly we depend on a connected world and is especially true for the power and communications cables we rely so heavily on. These cables are vulnerable to both accidental and malicious damage, as well as electrical and mechanical failures and interruptions leave customers disappointed and are costly to operators.
