Minas Basin Route Engineering for Subsea Cables

This report presents recommended routes for subsea cables. The selected routes minimize alter courses which could prove difficult to handle with a barge in the type of currents present at the demonstration site. It also keeps a 2-3 time water depth separation to allow potential repair or recovery of any of the cables. It is also routed to stay at least 3 times water depth from the Open Hydro turbine that was installed on the volcanic plateau close to zone A.
