In addition, SEACON is heavily investing in the development of new products specifically designed for this market. The Wave and Tidal generation sectors have, in most circumstances, very different requirements in terms of electrical and fiber optic connections. For Wave applications these are generally for dry-mateable / manual make-up connectors whereas Tidal normally utilizes wet-mateable / ROV or stab-plate make-up. SEACON is able to supply many of these requirements from its range of standard products.
