MMT Bags COBRA Cable Route Survey
Marine survey specialist MMT has been awarded a cable route survey contract for the COBRA subsea cable, connecting Denmark with the Netherlands.
The survey contract, awarded by Prysmian, includes inshore and offshore parts, consisting of geophysical, geotechnical and visual surveys including cable tracker for cable crossings.
MMT will conduct the surveys over the COpenhagen-BRussels-Amsterdam (COBRA) cable using their own ROTV, ROV and survey vessels Franklin, Seabeam and Ping.
Ellen Svestad, CCO of MMT said: “We are really pleased over another contract award from Prysmian. The COBRA cable is the planned subsea interconnector between the Netherlands and Denmark and is managed by two of our existing clients, namely TenneT and Energinet – the operators of the Dutch and the Danish power transmission grids. We are grateful for Prysmian’s confidence in our services and we look forward to working with them again.”
The company noted that the work will start in July 2016.
The cable will span a length of 300 km, directly linking Eemshaven in the Netherlands to Endrup in Denmark.
