Duration: 6 days
Friday 15 July 2011, a cable fault occurred on the power cable between the islands Agersø and Zealand. Measurements of the cable indicated that the error was on a joint only a few hundred meters east of Agersø in very shallow water.
Upon request from SEAS-NVE, JD-Contractor A/S immediately mobilized M/S Vina together with the shallow drafted barge S/B Victor to the site together with a diving team and a team of jointers from nkt-cables to perform the cable repair.
The work was successfully carried out from 16 July 2011 to 22 July 2011. Consequently the cable was back in operation within only 7 days of the occurrence of the fault.
The tasks included:
- Localization and cutting out the faulted joint.
- Jointing a new short section in between the existing cable ends.
- Post-burial of the joint.
- M/S Vina
- S/B Victor
