The client: NKT Cables A/S
The work: Two out of three submarine cables between Bornholm and southern Sweden were damaged in December 2005. JD-Contractor A/S was assigned to locate and repair the two cables. Our diving and support vessel C/S Cable One was quickly sent off to the area to locate the damaged parts of the submarine cables. When the damages were located a ROV-inspection took place in order to show what caused the damages, then the cable laying barge Henry P. Lading repaired the cables and afterwards laid and embedded them back into the seabed. The work was finished in February 2006.
Central cable: 4,287 metres were recovered and 4,314 metres were spliced in.
Southwest cable: 1,100 metres were recovered and 1,137 metres were spliced in.
