PREPARATIONS FOR CONSTRUCTION – WALNEY EXTENSION (WOWO3+4)
INFIELD (INTER-ARRAY) AND EXPORT CABLE – PRE-LAY GRAPNEL RUN
As part of the preparations for construction a pre-lay grapnel run along the INFIELD or INTER-ARRAY CABLE ROUTES within both sections of the Wind Farm as well as along the whole length of the TWO EXPORT CABLE ROUTES is scheduled to begin in early February at a date to be confirmed.
The grapnel run will be carried out by the 27.7m Briggs Marine Multi-Cat Work Boat ‘FORTH WARRIOR’ (picture attached) and depending on weather and conditions as well as the requirement for any boulder or debris removal can be expected to last several weeks.
During Pre-Lay Grapnel operations ‘FORTH WARRIOR’ will keep a listening watch on VHF Channels 16 and 12 and can be contacted for information relating to vessel movement only.
The first attachment has two small chartlets, one gives information concerning the boundary of the Wind Farm site while the other shows the Turbine layout, there is also a picture of ‘FORTH WARRIOR’.
The second attachment shows the corridor of the EXPORT CABLE ROUTES down which ‘FORTH WARRIOR’ will operate.
Please note that the chartlets are for provided for information purposes only and should not be used for navigation.
If you know of any fisherman who works the area and does not receive this information or anybody else who would benefit from this information please let me know.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any further information
