Seabed mobility studies

We can monitor sediment behavior and seabed mobility for your assets, using our extensive experience and datasets. The variables we use for our modelling are numerical or analytical, and take into account soil properties and hydrodynamic changes. The outcome of these models is then used to predict morphological processes.

Thermal modeling

Let us assist you in designing the most performant cable route and avoid cable overheating. Thanks to our deep understanding of the soil encapsulating a cable, we can use various soil parameters to predict the heat trajectory from cable to seawater, including conductive and convective behavior. Marlinks will gladly assist you to validate the modeling results in a lab test.

Continuous risk assessment

The Carbon Trust CBRA Methodology (CTC835) determines the methodology for cable risk assessment. Three parameters are usually taken into account: fishing, anchoring and burial depth. Although these conditions are often considered to be constant, they are not. Burial depth in particular is prone to significant change due to seabed mobility. Marlinks software automatically updates risk assessment based on the cable’s burial depth.

“We’re running Marlinks software on both wind farms now, and are confident that overall cable risk has decreased thanks to Marlinks’ continuous monitoring”
