    Tidal Energy: design and manufacture of cables, terminations, connectors and junction boxes

    Hydro Group cable and connectivity solutions can withstand the harshest environmental conditions on earth, including salt water, solar effects, stormforce winds and dynamic tidal / wave motion. These factors place extreme loads on the subsea systems, connectors and cables. All Hydro Group cables and connectors are designed and manufactured for flexibility and environmental endurance.

    Hydro Group works closely with the world’s leading Renewable Energy organisations to deliver a range of subsea cable solutions for tidal / wave power transfer and export.

    Hydro Group can design and manufacture a robust solution running up to 36kV, which includes fibre optic connection.


    Custom Design Solutions

    All Hydro Group cables, terminations, connectors and junction boxes are designed in-house by our team of experienced Engineers. The team includes Electrical, Mechanical and Optical Engineers, Production Engineers and 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) Specialists.


    Connectors

    Hydro Group has overcome offshore hazardous sea conditions with the design and production of a deck-mate connector which evolved from our original junction box design, which allows installation times on the barge to be reduced from weeks to 12 hours!


    Hydro Group offer testable stop end solution allowing full energisation and testing of the terminated cable, which can easily be converted to a connector.


    Junction Boxes

    The Marine Renewable Energy industry brings challenges in getting power and control information from energy conversion devices to shore. Hydro Group provide junction box (housing) solutions for both medium and high voltage and fibre optic connectivity, easily adaptable for a wide range of power and fibre optic core sizes.


    Hydro Group can design and manufacture a robust solution running up to 36kV, which includes fibre optic connections.


    Cables

    Hydro Group works closely with the world’s leading Renewable Energy organisations to deliver a range of subsea cable solutions for tidal / wave power transfer and export.

    The Hydro Group dynamic power cables (umbilicals) incorporates 12kV to 36kV three phase power cores and fibre optic cables for data transfer and provides the connection between power buoys and the underwater substation. Our cable and connectivity solutions withstand the harshest environmental conditions on earth, including salt water, solar effects, stormforce winds and dynamic tidal / wave motion. These factors place extreme loads on the subsea systems, connectors and cables. All Hydro Group cables and connectors are designed and manufactured for flexibility and environmental endurance.
