Cable Failure Statistics every 2nd year

Many companies wish to use accurate data to make informed decisions about installation and operation of underground and submarine cable systems. To support this approach, CIGRE has been gathering population and failure data from cable systems in service since at least 1977 and an update of the failure statistics has been published approximately every 10 years since then. In 2020, the results of the latest survey were published in Technical Brochure TB 815 covering land and submarine cable systems for the years 2006 to 2015.
