Limitation of AC Submarine Cable

I know Capacitance charging current is given by the equation:
Ic= 2PICE
PI=3.14 approx.
C = Capacitance
E = Voltage

How would you calculate what the maximum length of a submarine cable before losses are to great? Is there an example of this calculation?
I'm trying to determine how to determine and calculate whether a AC submarine cable would be suitable for installation. Would you look at the Capacitance charging current? if so what are you comparing it with?
Thank You.

Although capacitance has its effects inductance and resistance too will have their impact on VD. Refer cable manufacturer's cataloque
