Marine cable route survey contract for Svenska kraftnät, Swedish national grid
MMT has been awarded the contract for the Själland cable survey between Denmark and Sweden by Svenska kraftnät.
Svenska kraftnät and their Danish counterpart Energinet.dk are the transmission system owners and operators of a 400 kV High Voltage AC cable system across the Öresund, between Sweden and Denmark. The cable system will be exchanged due to its technical lifetime.
MMT has recently been awarded the contract for a cable route survey, with the purpose of investigating and verifying the feasibility of the new submarine cable route. This marine cable route survey covers geophysical information such as bathymetry, surface geology and sub-bottom conditions. MMT will also perform a geotechnical investigation, cable tracking and identification of cable crossings.
The offshore operations will be performed from MMT’s survey and ROV vessel Icebeam and the coastal surveys from the survey vessel Seabeam. The operations will start in spring 2014.
