  • Typical Cable Installation Problems
    When installing a subsea cable, there are several common pitfalls: laying with too much tension or with high slack / low tension. High slack / low tension can result in using more cable than is necessary and increase the chance of unwanted loops. Also, laying a power cable with low tension or slack could result in a damaging kink at the touchdown. On the other hand, installing a cable with ten...
