2023-09 September Indeximate are pleased to announce the launch of an R&D programme with Swansea University Astute Centre of Excellence to prove the fundamentals of power cable electromechanical response. This numerical investigation provides both a verification of our ElectroMechanical risk metric and at the same time a route to expand and quantify degradation. For the first time the industry now has a tool to understand the integrity of cables at each point along it, without getting wet – the aim of this project is to expand the foundations with a quantification of performance and exploration of some of the fundamental relationships between electrical current and strain response.
2023-08 August Following our well recieved blog article on problems facing the subsea cable insurance industry, Indeximate Ltd today is pleased to publish our Recommendations for Cable Health Assessment Requirements. This is published freely for the industry under a CC-BY Creative Commons Licence – you are free to use it, adapt it, exploit it and republish it.
This is what we follow and issue our certificates of cable health against these requirements. It is a completely technology agnostic approach, instead it defines outcomes in terms of cable health knowledge that are desired – it is up to the reporter to define their approach and what degree of cover it supplies. You can read more about in our blog page or you can download the document directly.
2023-06 June has been a really busy month for Indeximate with the team performing multiple deployments. Our targets on these jobs were measuring cable degradation and thermal response, remotely assessing repairs and profiling our risk factors. The presence of a long dataset offers a wealth of ancillary information – including tides, waves, weather, crossings, turbines, ships and much more. Time is a great leveller allowing you to tease out massive amounts from the data.
Long datasets reveal so much – horizontally we see time passing, some sections of cable change, some stay the same, some respond, some don’t – all through this we see diurnal variation and the changing pattern of weather
We are really pleased to be co-sponsoring the inaugural Subsea Cable Insurance Conference & Workshop, hosted by Global Underwater Hub at the Canary Wharf Hilton, London on May 16th.
It’s exciting for us as it’s also our launch event. Alastair & Chris will be on hand at the event at our booth to explain the competitive advantage that robust cable assessment can bring to the insurance market. This is shaping up to be an excellent event with extra capacity being brought in to accommodate the increasing number of delegates. More info on globalunderwaterhub.com
