Start of slicing tests
The vessel Aethra, chartered by Prysmian on behalf of Ailes Marines, will carry out slicing tests.
Prysmian has been commissioned by Ailes Marines to supply and install the wind farm's inter-wind submarine cables.
The trenching tests at sea will be carried out on four main sites, characteristic of the different types of soil in the bay.
The aim of the tests is to validate the trenching tool that will be used to install the inter-wind turbine cables, in order to optimise future construction work on the wind farm and to ensure the safety of future users inside during its operation (in particular fishermen), by confirming the technical feasibility of 100% cable trenching in the different types of soil encountered.
