Protecting Energy Assets
Energy companies with undersea power cables for transmission to low power generating regions or from offshore renewable energy sources, are at a serious risk of damage by ship anchors or commercial fishing vessels. Ships accidentally anchor in cable areas or can drag anchors in rough weather conditions. Commercial fishing trawlers can trawl over cables along the bottom of the sea or in midwater. Sea surface installations such as offshore wind farms, wave and tidal power structures are also at risk from vessel collisions.
Guardian Asset Protection helps energy companies protect their underwater power cables and sea surface installations from accidental damage. After being struck by anchors twice earlier, New York Power Authority uses Guardian:protect to warn marine traffic of their cable zone in the Long Island Sound.
Areas of Protection
Undersea Power Cables
Protect undersea power cables, either buried or laid on the seabed, that are at risk of damage by large trawlers and commercial ship anchors.
Renewable energy offshore installations
Guard offshore wind, wave and tidal installations that are at risk from cargo ships and other large and small vessels.
