Ultra-High Conductivity Umbilicals (07121-1302)

NanoRidge Materials, Inc. - Principal Investigator:  Dean Hulsey

Objective:  The goal of this project is to develop an ultra-high conductivity power cable suitable for use in undersea umbilicals. The overall objective is to design, build, and test an engineering prototype of a working ultra-high conductivity cable that could in later stages be incorporated into an umbilical exceeding 100 miles in length and called upon to deliver up to 10 MW at up to 36 kV with operating temperatures up to 250°F and pressures up to 4500 psi.
Period of Performance:  December 5, 2008 to May 30, 2010
