Cable Repairs - IFA 2000

The submarine electrical link (IFA 2000) between England and France This link is composed of 8 cables laid in pairs in 4 trenches, called "routes".

Four cables of this link have been damaged during the storm Angus on 20th November 2016, and we have been awarded the contract by RTE (owner of the link with National Grid) for the cables repair works.

These operations have started on 2nd of January 2017 and will take approximately 2-3 months (weather permitting).

 

The defaults are approximately 4 nm offshore Dover, the positions of the defaults are :

-        Defaults cables 11 and 12 - Route 4 :  51°03.850'N   001°15.955'E

-        Defaults cables 33 and 34 - Route 2 :  51°04.627'N   001°16.683'E

The repair operations are taking place simultaneously at both locations. Marking buoys have been installed around the work sites in order to secure the area

3 x DP2 vessels for the repair operations  (each approx 95m long)
