Next Geosolutions has been awarded two survey contracts, which together represent a multimillion euro figure, for the North Sea Link (NSL) project, the first electricity link between UK and Norway. The first contract, due to commence in April, will see Next Geosolutions provide cable protection survey work for Statnett, the Norwegian transmission system operator.
The two week workscope will involve cable inspections for the Skagerrak electricity transmission system and NorNed power cable interconnectors. The interconnectors will link the electricity transmission systems of different countries, with subsea cables utilised for the NSL, passing through Norwegian and British waters. The second contract is due to commence in May for a period of three months. It will involve Next Geosolutions carrying out offshore cable route survey, unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey and route preparation techniques. Each survey will be performed with Geosolutions’ dynamic positioning (DP) Class 2 multi-purpose supply (MPSV) vessel, the Ievoli Cobalt.
