Bibby HydroMap Completes Burbo Bank Extension Export Cable Scans

Bibby HydroMap has completed site operations on the newly installed export cable of Burbo Bank Extension.

Contracted by DONG Energy, the work involved two of the company’s vessels; Bibby Athena and Lia, mobilised with survey equipment to acquire multibeam bathymetry, side scan sonar data, sub bottom profiler data and cable depth of burial data.

Cable depth of burial data was acquired by Bibby Athena using Bibby HydroMap’s dynamic remotely operated survey platform (d’ROP) equipped with PanGeo Subsea’s Sub Bottom Imager, completing the 24-kilometer route in 2 operational days.

DONG Energy project manager, Gareth Ellis, said: “It was very pleasing to see the Bibby Athena carrying out her depth of burial operations so safely, efficiently and to good effect over the Burbo Bank Extension export cable. The development of the use of the dynamic remotely operated survey platform (d’ROP) with the PanGeo sub bottom imager over the last 2 years has lead to a very competent operation. I was pleased to see it utilised effectively for the first time on this project.”

With a capacity of up to 258 MW, the site generates enough energy to meet the average needs of up to 230,000 homes.
