MMT Conducts COBRAcable Route Surveys

MMT was contracted by OMM (Offshore Marine Management) to perform a geophysical, geotechnical and cable crossing surveys in preparation for the installation of the COBRAcable on behalf of end client TenneT.

The COBRAcable route (appr. 325 km) is proposed to be laid across the Southern North Sea connecting the Netherlands and Denmark. The COBRAcable is a cross-border project of European significance and is part of the EU Economic Recovery Plan and is designated as a Project of Common Interest (PCI), MMT wrote.

The project was successfully completed with a four vessel solution between early September and late November. The M/V Askholmen performed Shallow Water Geophysical Survey at the landfalls in Eemshaven, Netherlands and Fanö, Denmark. The Coastal Chariot from Acta Marine performed shallow water Geotechnical Survey utilizing MMT’s CPT and Vibro Corer. The M/V Icebeam performed Offshore Geophysical Survey and Geotechnical Survey with the Stril Explorer performing Cable Crossing Surveys to establish Depth of Burial using the Orion Cable Tracking System.

The Stril Explorer also undertook the CPT and Vibro Corer works at the end of the project.

The project was awarded under OMM’s framework agreement held with TenneT for the provision of survey services. OMM nominated MMT as subcontractor for the project, for the provision of Geophysical and Geotechnical survey services.
