Isle of Jura Power Cable Protection

23rd May 2016

Pipeshield are proud to announce the award of this project by Briggs Marine to supply concrete mattresses to be placed over the Submarine Power cable running from the Isle of Jura to the Scottish Mainland.

Briggs Marine who are responsible for the Marine Operations on the Jura Project, installed 60 of our mattresses which are being used for impact protection and  for scour prevention.

The cable route across the Sound of Jura, owned and operated by SSEPD has varied seabed conditions and is one of their deepest crossings around Scotland at a 202 meter depth.

The mattresses where successfully installed in April this year and we look forward to working with Briggs Marine again on similar scopes of work in the future.
