Date: December 2010
Duration: 11 days
Friday 10 December 2010, a cable fault occurred on the power cable between the island Agersø and Omø. The fault was located to be only 800 m from south of Agersø but in 40 meters of water.
Upon request from SEAS-NVE, JD-Contractor A/S immediately mobilized M/S Cable One, together with a diving team and a team of jointers from nkt-cables, to perform a cable repair.
The task included:
- Exact localization of cable fault and determination of the cause of the fault
- Recovery of damaged cable section
- Installation of new cable section
- Jointing new section with existing cable
The work was successfully carried out from 10 December 2010 to 21 December 2010, just in time for Christmas.
Performing a cable repair in only 11 days at this time of year was mainly down to our experienced crew.
