Subsea cable installation is a risky business, which has led to company and project failures in a complex offshore environment. Offshore Renewable Energy Contracts often mention Good Wind Industry Practice as if it is common knowledge, but offshore renewables is still a nascent industry. Various bodies have attempted to put guidance papers together and yet even experienced contractors can fail to identify risks and mitigate them.

This presentation will examine subsea energy cable projects at a practical level, in order to identify some of these risks and emphasize the importance of understanding environmental and ground conditions and their impact on installation practices in order to be able to satisfy the criteria of Good Wind Industry practice.
