Global controls technology leader scoops runner-up prize for its step change ECG™ holistic subsea cable monitoring system for offshore wind.

Proserv has been spotlighted yet again at a leading industry awards event gaining acknowledgment as Innovative Supply Chain Company of the Year (Large Enterprise) runner-up at the annual Offshore Energies UK (OEUK) Awards, held last night at the P&J Live in Aberdeen.

Eight categories were featured as OEUK took the opportunity “to celebrate the people and companies who have demonstrated standout talent, innovation, and accomplishment across the energy sector in 2023.” Speaking ahead of the ceremony OEUK CEO David Whitehouse said:

“Our members are investing not only in homegrown oil and gas, but also to accelerate our expansion into renewable sources. The expertise of our people is driving innovation in clean energy solutions like carbon capture and storage, the hydrogen economy, and offshore wind. We are determined to create a sustainable future.”

Chairman David Currie, CEO Davis Larssen and Vice President, Renewables, Paul Cook were among the Proserv delegation in attendance. The recognition was conferred on the company due to the development, emergence, impact and industry-wide potential of its ECG™ holistic subsea cable monitoring system for fixed bottom and floating offshore wind.

The technology represents a major step forward in subsea cable monitoring, delivering real-time intelligence and visibility on the condition and integrity of subsea cables, enabling asset owners and operators to detect possible faults and failures before they occur, enhancing utilisation, alleviating the threat of costly downtime, extending ROI, while optimising maintenance scheduling and the targeting of OPEX. Critically, ECG™ also monitors cable terminations, an area highly susceptible to potential issues.

Synaptec, a power system monitoring expert, and subsea power cable engineering and management specialists, BPP Cable Solutions, pooled their capabilities alongside Proserv’s know-how in control system integration and subsea experience within a technology consortium to deliver this genuine shift in cable monitoring.

In little more than two years since its development, ECG™ has won landmark deals on the vast fixed bottom Dogger Bank Wind Farm and the world’s pioneering floating wind projects, including the first commercial asset – Equinor’s Hywind Scotland.

After the event, Paul Cook commented:

“This accolade is much appreciated and we thank OEUK for yet another enjoyable evening. Our congratulations to all winners and runners-up.

“This recognition speaks not only to the potential impact of ECG™ and its ability to support the future rollout of offshore wind, and the transition, but how the supply chain can come together and share its knowledge to collaborate and build the essential technologies of the future.”

CEO Davis Larssen added:

“Our core mission at Proserv has long been to deploy our skills to develop solutions to empower decision-making, optimise performance and ultimately extend the life of critical infrastructure. ECG™ is a great representation of our methodology as we pivot that approach to offshore wind and sustainable energy.

“Every industry acknowledgement is much valued but for the broad team that has worked on ECG™, from concept through to delivery, particularly our partners Synaptec and BPP Cable Solutions, it is especially well-deserved.”

Proserv Chairman David Currie observed:

“This has been another good night for Proserv at a leading awards event, hosted by a very well-respected trade body in OEUK, and once again witnessing due acclaim for our talented and creative team.

“One of our unique differentiators is engaging closely with the market, listening to what it actually needs and pinpointing areas where we can innovate genuinely effective solutions. It is very satisfying to see our impactful work in offshore wind making ever further headway.”
