50Hertz´ Baltic 1 and 2 has been successfully completed
Proud and pleased Primo Marine would like to announce that the long-term consulting mandate for offshore burial expertise on 50Hertz´ Baltic 1 and 2 grid connection sea cables nos. 151, 152, 153 and 154 has been successfully completed.
Starting in 2017, Primo Marine was contracted by 50Hertz to undertake a review study to independently verify the burial depth of the sea cables.
Later Primo Marine assessed the required burial situation through a state-of-the art Risk Based Burial Depth (RBBD) study for the risks of external threats and the protection levels given by the prevailing burial depths taking into account existing legislative conditions.
This RBBD study showed the protection as adequate throughout most of the cable length, however some locations would benefit from remedial protection. Primo Marine’s task continued by advising on possible efficient cable protection measures, the designing of the works and specification of the required scope.
Primo Marine concluded their mandate by supporting the technical part of the tender, contributing to the contract negotiations, assisting during the execution of the works as well as reviewing the application and as-laid documentation for the competent authorities.
Primo Marine was truly honoured to have been contracted for this delicate and comprehensive task.
