Scarce metals and minerals that we will desperately need in the future lie at the bottom of the ocean for us to pick. Therefore, many countries are looking into the possibilities of mining these raw materials at a depth of kilometres. "It's not an easy task", knows Wiebe Boomsma, Manager Product Development at Royal IHC. "In many cases, standard equipment is not enough."

Every ROV project has its own system requirements. For a fit-for-purpose cable design, these system requirements have to be translated into cable requirements. In other words, the link between system requirements, cable requirements and cable design is crucial for a successful subsea project. 

 

In this blog, we take a look at the system requirements with the greatest impact on cable requirements and the cable design. Read more in this free to download whitepaper.

The newly developed Sonic Wireline Operated Remote Drill (SWORD) is a system designed to collect samples and geotechnical data from the seabed. The cable needs to combine electro/optic components with a high tensile light-weight strength member, taking into account the rules around rope hoisting/lifting applications.
