- To develop new materials and designs for offshore power grid components which are at the highest risk for failure: namely cable terminations and subsea connectors.
- To significantly increase the breakdown strength and lifetime of cable connectors and terminations by essentially controlling and increasing the interfacial pressure between the components using a new design principle and tailor-made materials. This will, in addition, facilitate higher voltage ratings (> 66 kV) without significant increase in cost, areal or environmental footprint of the infrastructure, a prerequisite for future cost-competitive subsea grids.
