The project was performed in an extremely efficient way. As soon as NKT had been informed about the damage by Baltic Cable AB, NKT staff and equipment were quickly made available for the initial operation. After the fault location had been detected, NKT staff deburied the cable and carried out the cut-and-seal operation aboard a subcontracted vessel provided by JD Contractor. Within five days, this initial operation was completed and the cable was prepared for the repair. After efficient preparations, the final repair operation was completed on our vessel NKT Victoria, and within just 29 days the Baltic Cable was back in
By bringing the Baltic Cable back into operation in less than a month, we once again showcased our speed in offshore repairs. In addition to the short resource mobilization time and the availability of our own repair vessel NKT Victoria, our ability to efficiently cooperate with customers and subcontractors contributed to a quick repair.
Operational success was ensured through efficient execution by all parties involved, minimizing the outage time and bringing the important interconnector back into operation. The operations also showed the importance of having a pre-negotiated repair contract and a sufficient and updated stock of spare cable parts in place to ensure quick mobilization and execution.
