Next Geosolutions to Survey UK-Norway North Sea Link

Next Geosolutions has been awarded two survey contracts for the North Sea Link (NSL) project, the first electricity link between UK and Norway.

The first contract, due to start in April, will see Next Geosolutions provide cable protection survey work for Statnett, the Norwegian transmission system operator.

The two week work scope will involve cable inspections for the Skagerrak electricity transmission system and NorNed power cable interconnectors. The interconnectors will link the electricity transmission systems of different countries, with subsea cables utilized for the NSL, passing through Norwegian and British waters.

Carlo Pinto, Next Geosolutions’ sales and marketing director said: “We’re extremely proud to have the opportunity to contribute to the NSL electricity link which, once completed, will be the longest subsea interconnector in the world.”

The second contract is due to begin in May for a period of three months. It will involve Next Geosolutions carrying out offshore cable route survey, unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey and route preparation techniques.

Each survey will be performed with the same mobilization and demobilization delivered by Next Geosolutions’ DP2 multi-purpose supply (MPSV) vessel Ievoli Cobalt.

The vessel is currently fitted with a Schilling-ultra heavy duty (UHD) work-class remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and McArtney Focus 3 remotely operated towed vehicle (ROTV).
