October 2005 - Lillebaelt: Clean drinking water

Clean drinking water from Jutland to Funen. JD-Contractor A/S carried out the laying and embedding of both the water pipeline and the fibre-optics cable. 

Client: TRE-FOR VAND A/S
Place: Denmark

For the first time two big parts of Denmark have a common water pipeline. The pipeline is to function as an emergency supply in case the water on Funen is polluted. The pipeline, which was laid out by our cable laying barge Henry P. Lading, has a diameter of 26 centimetres and an annual capacity of one million cubic metres of water.

Our diving ships M/S Honte and C/S Cable One embedded the pipeline into the seabed.

The major part of the embedding was carried out by our remote-controlled ROV SUB-JET ONE, since the deepest position is 46 meter below water level.

Approx. 1,150 metres of pipelines are laid out and approx. 1,150 metres of fibre-optic cables are also laid out.
