Briggs to Start Kames-Bute Subsea Cable Repair

Briggs Marine Contractors Limited has advised mariners that it will be undertaking submarine power cable repair works between Kames and Bute.

Marine operations will be running from Tuesday, February 17, 2015 to Friday, February 27, 2015.

According to Briggs, operations will be carried out from the vessels Forth Guardsman and Forth Jouster. Forth Guardsman will perform cable repair operations using a 4 point mooring pattern offshore. Forth Guardsman will be supported by Forth Jouster as Anchor Handling Tug / Dive Support Vessel Vessel.

During cable repair operations, Forth Guardsman will be restricted in the ability to manoeuvre.

It is requested that all vessels operating within this area maintain a safe distance and pass at minimum speed.

During operations, the vessels will display the appropriate day shapes/signals and at times of reduced visibility the appropriate lights as required by the IRPCS. The vessels will also actively transmit an AIS signal. A continuous listening watch will be maintained on VHF Channel 16 and DSC.
