Call for Ideas: Smart communications subsea

We have launched a 'Call for Ideas' to find innovative technology concepts for ‘smart Communications subsea’ (smartCs) that will interconnect a variety of subsea and topside systems.

We're focused on two themes that will help unlock the huge potential in small pools: 

  • Electrification of subsea systems
  • Subsea internet of things

Your technology ideas should actively support our ‘Tieback of the Future’ initiative, which aims to half the cost and time of developing small pools. Creating a circular economy, whereby subsea equipment is designed for disassembly and reuse, is at the heart of the initiative.
