ILE D’YEU – Installation of 2 sections of cable

The Ile d’Yeu (Vendée, France) is supplied with electricity from the mainland by three cables, called YEU3, YEU4 and YEU5.

YEU3 and YEU4 cables have been mechanically damaged, and ERDF has decided to replace two sections, 3000m on YEU3 and 1800m on YEU4.

ERDF has awarded Louis Dreyfus Travocean for the management of the cable drums, the on-site transport and the installation of submarine cables on 2 km from the shore.

These new sections have been installed between the 19th and the 24th of September 2015 : each section of cable has been floated and towed up by boats along the route, the floats have been removed and the cable has sunk into its final position on the bottom.
