Fugro wraps up cable survey work for Nexans in Norway

Fugro has completed a contract for Nexans to provide remotely operated vehicle (ROV) survey and monitoring support services to lay the North Sea Link cable through a mountain and along a lakebed in Norway.

UK-based utility company National Grid NSN Link and Norwegian state-owned grid operator Statnett are building an electricity interconnector between Kvilldal in Norway and Blyth in the UK which, on completion, will be the longest subsea interconnector in the world.

Fugro’s survey and monitoring assets supported the installation of two cables through the mountain between Hylsfjorden and Lake Suldalsvatnet, and along the lakebed at a depth of 210 metres.

The inspection work was carried out over the span of one month.
