Other Existing Electrical Cables Offshore

Cables have been placed at the bottom of the sea since the beginning of the 19th century.

The first submarine telecommunications cable was installed between France and the UK more than 150 years ago, in 1850. Subsequently, many underwater electrical connections have been established in Europe and in the world. The only existing power cables between Britain and France, IFA 2000, were installed in the mid-1980s.
