PMI engineers solutions for companies around the globe. And today, while, offshore energy might be relatively new it still requires the kind of deep ocean engineering experience we offer. We are excited to be part of this growing industry and are currently creating custom solutions for cable management, installation, repair and mooring strategies for wind farm platforms.
Therefore if you need something a more specific to your operations, you should know we custom-engineer parts to our client’s needs.
The results: increased efficiency and a significant return on investment.
Tell us your biggest concern and let’s work together to create a solution today.
Companies are developing turbines and other devices to generate power from ocean tides and waves. These are big, expensive technologies that require substantial investments of time, energy and expertise. In addition, companies working on them hope to exploit first-mover advantage and export their technologies worldwide.
As a supplier of subsea cable management systems, we see some interesting possibilities as these technologies emerge:
This list barely skims the surface of the possibilities in this sector. Want to know more? Read the blog
Wave and tidal energy are getting the most attention right now. Costs for commercial development are still too high for this technology to become mainstream right away, but an encouraging collection of pilot projects in Canada, Europe and Australia — combined with the work of companies developing marine power devices — could lead to discoveries that can bring these costs down and encourage further development.
At PMI, we build accessories that make it easier to use cables in the ocean. Given that all marine energy devices have to transmit electricity over cables, we’re excited about the potential of marine energy.
But we also think that companies in a broad range of industries should be exploring these technologies and looking for ways to bring new products to market. If history is any guide, the people who invent the technologies that move marine energy into the mainstream stand to be forerunners of the industry.
