Jan de Nul to Repair Subsea Cable in Iceland

Jan De Nul Group has been contracted by the Icelandic electrical transmission company Landsnet for an urgent cable repair between Westman Island and the main land of Iceland.

The repair is planned to be undertaken in June using the cable installation vessel Isaac Newton, which was mobilized from Canada to Europe, Jan de Nul informed.

Full vessel preparation works as well as the necessary engineering were subsequently performed within the shortest possible timeframe.

The Isaac Newton set sail from the port of Rotterdam on June 01, and arrived in the port of Westman on June 04.

The loading of the spare cable, that will be used to repair the 66kV, 3-phase subsea cable, started immediately, the company said.

The repair will be initiated by picking up the broken cable from a water depth of about 50 meters.

The population and the fishing industry in the Westman Islands should be restored to full electrical connection again by the end of this month.
