NKT has repaired the Skagerrak 2 cable system between Norway and Denmark.
The interconnector Skagerrak 2 between Kristiansand in Norway and Tjele in Denmark was damaged in end-July due to external impact.
NKT was awarded the turnkey service repair order of the 250 kV mass impregnated high-voltage direct current (HVDC) offshore cable from the Norwegian system operator Statnett. NKT’s scope of work comprised the complete repair operation following deburial of the cable carried out by Statnett’s vessel Elektron.
Espen Kiær, project manager for the repair at Statnett, said: “NKT has carried out this repair project in a professional and efficient manner. Both the vessel NKT Victoria and the NKT team have proved to be well capable of handling offshore cable repairs. We have enjoyed working with NKT during this project.”
Oliver Schlodder, Executive Vice President and Head of Service and Accessories at NKT says:
– Time and operational excellence are crucial in a service operation and we clearly start to see how Statnett and other customers benefit from a turnkey service operation. When handling all from planning to execution we can ensure maximum efficiency, smooth interfaces and lower risk.
The cable vessel NKT Victoria executed the project.
