Normand Pacific Set to Carry Out Western Link Route Survey

Post lay survey works for the installed cable sections on the Western HVDC Link route are due to be start in early March 2017, AWJ Marine informs.

Survey work in Liverpool Bay, the Irish Sea, the North Channel and the mouth of the Firth of Clyde is due to be conducted by the vessel Normand Pacific.

The survey will consist of a visual and instrumental survey of the installed cable route using a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) deployed from the vessel.

The vessel involved in this work will be restricted in its ability to manoeuvre and other vessels are reminded to navigate with caution in its vicinity and pay strict attention to instructions issued to them by navigation authorities.

Guard vessels have been stationed along the cable route during installation and burial to ensure the safety of marine users.

In areas where the cable crosses other cables and pipelines that are in service, the guard vessels will remain on station until cable protection has been completed in these locations.
