Cable-laying vessel Nexans Skagerrak on its way to Karlshamn

Nexans Skagerrak approaching  Helsingborg/Helsingør.

This morning the cable-laying vessel Nexans Skagerrak passed Helsingborg/Helsingør on its way to from Palma de Mallorca to Swedish Karlshamn.

The 112 m x 32 m Nexans Skagerrak was in 2010 lengthened by 12,5 meters in order to increase its cable handling capabilities. Among the cables the vessel has laid are a 400 kV submarine cable across the Strait of Gibraltar, a 576 km long HVDC cable between Norway and Holland, and a 275 km energy/fiber cable between Mallorca and mainland Spain.
