Wave Hub has completed the inspection of its subsea cable system installed as part of its wave energy test site infrastructure sited off Cornwall in the UK.

The work was conducted by Bristol-based subsea services provider Rovco Subsea which used the Severn Sea workboat on an area of up to 100 meters of either side of Wave Hub subsea cables.

The inspection included the multibeam echosounder bathymetry and ROV visual survey of the complete Wave Hub subsea power cable system.

The operation, expected to last for 10 days, was completed on August 30, 2017, according to Wave Hub.

Located 16 kilometers offshore from Hayle on the north coast of Cornwall, at the eastern edge of the Atlantic Ocean, the Wave Hub site provides shared infrastructure for the demonstration and proving of offshore renewable energy technologies.
