A robust submarine cable dataset at your fingertips

Our reliance on the intricate network of subsea cables continues to grow globally. There is a significant boom in offshore renewable energy generation, satisfying the increasing demands of the world whilst also plugging the gap in capacity lost as more traditional generation methods come to end of life. And it’s extraordinary to contemplate the phenomenal demand for data, which today penetrates every corner of the globe. Both surges in connectivity rely almost entirely on vital cable infrastructure on the sea floor as it circumnavigates the globe between countries and continents.

Offshore wind farms are a regular feature around the British coastline. According to a recent submarine power cable report from ESCA (European Subsea Cables Association) there are currently 18 operational wind farms around the coast of the UK, with a total of 1,075 turbines.
