Mini Case Study: WaveHub.

Sector.

Power.

The Challenge.

Wave Hub is a subsea electrical grid connection point off the north coast of Cornwall, providing the electrical infrastructure to support developers of Marine Energy Converter devices. Wave Hub allows developers to test devices in a monitored marine environment and export generated electricity via the Western Power Distribution substation at Hayle.

The Solution.

AssetMonitor protects 8 km sq of seabed, 55 metres beneath the surface. This area, 10 miles off the coast of St. Ives, is home to Wave Hub’s subsea electrical grid connection point.

Customer Success.

“AssetMonitor is a powerful safeguarding and safety management software package. We use the tool principally as a marine coordination platform, but the asset-monitoring and protection are a vital secondary function.” Julius Besterman, Marine Operations Manager.

Geography.

United Kingdom.

Date.

2014 – present.
