Western Link Contruction Advances

Cable laying vessel Giulio Verne and support vessel Go Pegasus are continuing with installation and survey work in the Irish Sea along the Western HVDC Link cable route, AWJ Marine informs.

The Western Link Project consists of installing two 600 kV DC submarine cables in the Irish Sea from Ardneil (Scotland) to Wirral (England) for a total route length of about 387 km.

The vessels have completed post-lay survey work, and are now gearing up for additional pre-lay survey work and cable installation along the cable route.

As a part of the third campaign, the post-lay survey of the cable has been completed in the North Channel and the mouth of the Firth of Clyde by the cable laying vessel Giulio Verne.

As a part of sixth campaign, during the month of September, the Giulio Verne vessel is due to start the cable installation in the North Channel and the mouth of the Firth of Clyde.

The work is expected to be completed in November 2016.

The vessels Go Pegasus and Maersk Connector are due to carry out survey work along the cable route in the Firth of Clyde, and having completed this will carry out a pre-lay grapnel run along the route to ensure it is free of obstructions that could hinder burial.

This work is due to begin on September 9, and to be completed by the beginning of October 2016.
