Nemo Link is demining seabed to safely lay first electricity interconnector between UK and Belgium


05-07-2017

Preparatory works for the construction of Nemo Link, the first subsea electricity interconnector between the UK and Belgium, have been ongoing on both UK and Belgium onshore since 2015 and are now also being executed at sea.


To ensure that the route will be safe for cable installation, Nemo Link is detecting and removing unexploded ordnances (UXOs) and other objects from the seabed, over a length of 130 kilometers.

The Norwegian vessel “Olympic Intervention IV” is currently investigating the Belgian deep sea waters, assisted by the Belgian marine for actual disposals.
