In connection with an expansion of the Port on Fur one of the old transmission cables to the island needed to be replaced and relocated. Originally it was planned to establish a new connection with a directional drilling. However, because of the challenging underground in the area JD-Contractor A/S were call in at short notice to perform the replacement as a marine installation instead.
The work consisted of:
- Route planning and survey of new cable route
- Recovery and disposal of old cable
- Loading, transportation and laying of new 3 x 150 PEX-AL 12 kV submarine cable
- Burial of the new submarine by means of jetting into the seabed
After a few weeks of engineering our to near coastal vessel S/B Victor and M/S Honte started the installation on March the 27th and all tasks were completed and cable were handed over to EnergiMidt on the 7th of April 2015.
