Hughes SSE has completed a 6-week cable decommissioning campaign for Jersey Electricity of the OSS EDF1 power cable.

The cable connected the Island of Jersey to France, and spanned 31 kilometers. The link will be replaced by so called Normandie 1 (N1) cable, scheduled for installation by VBMS’ vessel Stemat Spirit in the summer.

The works comprised of beach recovery works performed by GPC at Surville and Archirondel, followed by near shore recovery at both ends by the MCS Ailsa followed by offshore section by Atlantic Carrier.

Jersey Electricity CEO, Chris Ambler, said: “The recovery of EDF1, our first subsea cable to France commissioned in 1985, marks another important step in our £40m Normandie 1 project to lay its replacement over the same route. We are delighted this stage has been successfully completed and that the project as a whole is progressing well.”
