Subsea Cable Repair

ESB International has a long history of subsea cable repair. From 2008 - 2013 we designed and managed the installation and commission of a 44 kilometre 132 kVA submarine cable from mainland Tanzania to Zanzibar island. A project that secured electricity supply to the island nation for another 15 years.

In 2020, ESB International embarked on the highly profiled Hawar Island Submarine Cable Project, a project that will utilise cutting edge subsea cable laying engineering and technology.

Our complete range of services cover all your subsea cable requirements:


  • Project Engineering
  • Feasibility studies
  • Environmental assessment
  • Construction management

Use of Drone Technology

Drone technology has revolutionised inspections on utilities with a sizeable amount of assets. Assets can include thousands of kilometres of power lines or hundreds of wind turbines. Regular review of assets is critical to ensure effectiveness, and inspections can be costly, dangerous and time-consuming. Traditionally, you would have technicians climb turbines to inspect the machines or power lines. With drone technology, a drone will fly around a wind turbine, for example, and analyse the images through artificial intelligence. This generates accurate reports to improve the efficiency of the asset.

Energy Storage

Energy storage can absorb surplus renewable generation when energy exceeds demand and releases it when renewable generation output is low. Its purpose is to reduce the imbalances between energy demand and production.

Energy storage is anticipated for growth every year in the 2020s, with capacity set to grow by almost a third worldwide year on year reaching 741 gigawatt-hours by 2030.

There are several types of Energy Storage ESB International can advise. See below for examples.
