Mechanical testing of three low stiffness (dynamic) cables

A new journal paper co-authored between the Division of Marine Technology at Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), Université Gustave Eiffel (France) and MV Design at NKT (Sweden). The paper presents results from four types of mechanical tests carried out on three low stiffness (dynamic) marine power cables. The tests were conducted within the EU-funded research project Seasnake (

The journal paper is an Open Access paper in the Journal of Marine Science and Engineering:

The photographs below show the schematics of the components of (upper) the 3.6 kV and (lower) the 24 kV dynamic marine power cables tested in this study: (1) aramid fiber rope, (2) insulation material, (3) optical fiber, and (4) copper conductor.
