Abstract
In Norway the population of submarine cables in the distribution network (1-170 kV) is extremely diversified. Numerous unique designs, voltage levels and cross sections exists. This contributes to making contingency planning and repairs time-consuming and expensive. The cable systems are commonly characterized by their importance for reliable power delivery in the system and that special competence is needed to build, operate and repair them. New solutions have been found through national collaboration and an effort to standardize. Thirty network owners have entered a co-ownership to establish a contingency storage for standardized submarine cables, joints and terminations thus aiming to reduce costs and repair time in the future. The total investment of approximately 250 MNOK now covers approximately 1200 submarine cable systems. An individual investment for each partner would add up to more than 1 500 MNOK to achieve the same level of contingency preparedness.
