This chapter discusses the case of dynamic cables and subsea connectors for which the design requirements and specifications posed by marine energy applications are distinctly different from the ones typically applied in the offshore industry. Bespoke solutions are needed in this case as the design of the connection is largely dependent on the device dynamics and the deployment location. This chapter reviews applicable standards and procedures for cable components and highlight the most important issues associated with marine energy projects.
