The design of the Watucab™ system, with its pressure chamber and two or three cable feeders, allows for low-, medium- and high-voltage (LV, MV and HV) cables to be installed at longer distances compared to conventional installation methods. The increase in cable length, combined with installation speeds of up to 20 meters per minute, provide unprecedented production uptime.
What’s more, each operation is registered by the Plumettaz MP50 computer system, offering exact data monitoring and full control over the installation.
The ability to install cables over large distances (more than 2,000m) opens a number of opportunities. For example, installing export or inter-array cables from an onshore location to an offshore windfarm does not have to pose challenges anymore. At least not with the Watucab™ system.
