New Case Study: EWIC Cable Depth of Burial Survey

In May 2015, Bibby HydroMap Ltd. were commissioned by EirGrid to undertakea baseline geophysical survey of the EWIC cable between Rush Bay in Ireland and Prestatyn in North Wales.

The objectives of the survey were to establish  high accuracy baseline measurements of:

  • Seabed bathymetry, morphology and features along the cable route.
  • Topographic levels at the beach landings in both Ireland and Wales.
  • Depth of burial of the EWIC cable bundle measured from the seabed surface.

The survey was carried out by Bibby HydroMap’s two newly commissioned survey vessels Bibby Athena and Proteus.
