Moyle Interconnector – Cable Repair

Mariners are advised that the vessel Elektron Call Sign: LADO is being mobilised to carry out emergency repair work on the southern Moyle Interconnector power cable in the North Channel between Northern Ireland and Scotland.  This work is due to commence on the 6th May 2017.  A Notice to Mariners describing the work can be downloaded here and is summarised below:

The position given was 54°54.954'N 005°30.985'W

Later in the year (probably in August), the vessel Nexans Skagerrak will return to the area to pick up the cut cable ends, splice in a new section of cable, lay down the repaired cable and re-bury it.
