Concerto 1 North - Cable Repairs


Please be advised that Global Marine Systems Ltd has been contracted to undertake an emergency fibre optic submarine cable repair to the Concerto North fibre optic cable in the North Sea.

The vessel CS Sovereign will be arriving on site at approximately 17:00 on the 2nd November 2018, and the repair will take approximately 5 days depending on weather and other operational conditions on site.

The location of the repair is estimated to be at:   52°21.08'N  02°49.18'E which is situated within the UK EEZ.

Please distribute this information accordingly so that other sea users are aware. The vessel will be limited in manoeuvrability. Other vessels should maintain a distance of at least 1NM from the cable ship during operations, and 1/4NM from any cable buoys in place during the course of the repair for safety.  Please contact myself or Steve Bennet, Maintenance Manager (in copy)  if you have any queries regarding this notification or if you have any information on any underwater activity in this area that is relevant to the proposed operation.
