Joint Industry Project CAble Lifetime Monitoring (JIP CALM)

Four main tasks successfully completed: submarine power cable failure root causes, fibre optic-based power cable lifetime monitoring system, cable-seabed interaction, and logistic and cost impact assessment.

To satisfy the ever-increasing demand for electricity, significant quantities of offshore wind parks have been installed in which all the electricity is transported via submarine power cable systems. Failures of submarine power cable usually lead to significant costs due to long outage times and high repair costs. To reduce these negative effects the Joint Industry Project CAble Lifetime Monitoring (JIP CALM) was initiated in July 2019. The project, which ran until December 2022, was a collaboration between 31 international industry parties to increase the reliability of submarine power cables over their complete lifetime.
