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.

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.
