DRAMMEN, Norway, June 3, 2010 - Draka Offshore announced today The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC)
has selected Draka as their subsea power cable provider with the recent
purchase of cables and accessories. Draka's subsea power cables are now being
produced from their newly expanded production facility in Drammen, Norway.

"The selection of Draka for providing subsea power cables further
validates the quality and performance of our products in extreme under-water
conditions," stated Martin Dale, commercial director for subsea for Draka
Offshore. "Our subsea cables have delivered outstanding performance in oil
and gas which has helped us quickly gain status as a reliable supplier in the
offshore renewable energy field."

The contract requires Draka to deliver approximately 11,000 meters of
20kV subsea power cable for use in EMEC's tidal and wave energy test sites in
Orkney. Draka will also provide a range of accessories, and direct load out
to a vessel from its Drammen factory.

Wave Global Power Potential Up To 10,000GW

As the first of its kind, EMEC provides test facilities for a wide range
of technologies that can tap into the huge potential of wave and tidal
renewable energy. Wave power alone has an estimated global potential of
approximately 1,000-10,000 GW - in the same order of magnitude as the world's
electricity consumption, according to the World Offshore Renewable Energy
Report 2004-2008 published by UK Renewables.

Located in the Orkney Islands of Northern Scotland, the wave and tidal
sites are designed to test a range of machines located down to a depth of 50
meters and up to two kilometers from shore.

"Wave and tidal energy is a very powerful source of renewable energy and
a very challenging environment for equipment and systems,'' stated Stuart
, EMEC Operations Director. "We need vendors like Draka who can deliver
quality products and services that can stand up to the elements over time."

The cables will be used to extend the EMEC test sites to create three new
grid-connected berths, two at the tidal test site and another at the wave
test site.
