In Aug 2016, a 3-core power cable which supplied the Aran Islands with electricity, developed a fault and the islands power was cut off. Irish Sea Contractors commenced intensive training of 12 of our divers in sub sea cable jointing. The ESBI supplied cable jointers to train our divers at our Sub Sea Innovation Facility in Ferns.
When our divers had perfected the skills of cable jointing in our warehouse they then proceeded to implement these skills in sea water. After weeks of intensive training, a 9 man diving team was mobilised to the Aran Islands to commence a sub sea cable repair of the power cable.
The weeks of intensive training in our Sub Sea Innovation Facility really paid off as the repair was successfully completed in record time and at a fraction of the cost of a conventional repair procedure.
This was a first in the world in power cable repair.
