During the research for this year's Offshore Cables Forum, past delegates requested a more interactive program in order to get to grips with all the hottest issues concerning the offshore cable industry. In the hopes of fostering an open and honest atmosphere we have included several panel sessions, case studies and networking sessions. This will allow plenty of time for digging deep into the key challenges currently being faced. This years event is focused around sharing project experiences and lessons learned in areas such as cable installation/burial, fault location and detection as well as repair. The second day will cover best practice on cable design and testing to lower costs and improve supply chains as well as a discussion on the move to 66kv and supply chain issues.

There has been a strong message from the industry that experience and knowledge needs to been shared in order to limit downtime and costly repairs in the future. Therefore I would encourage you to make make the most of the time afforded to you by getting straight to the heart of what message you want to convey to our community of wind professionals. The event program is a reflection of the research carried out as well as your input as a participant so let us make it the most informative experience we can! 


Developers, cable installers, cable manufacturers, wind farm owners and operators, utilities and service providers, vessel operators, grid connectors and consultants. Attendees may have these following job titles although the list is not exhaustive:
