Working around the clock on interconnector


Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Enemalta said that works on the interconnector are being carried out on a 24/7 basis. So far there have been only a few hours of interruption due to unfavourable weather conditions.

The interconnector spares were loaded onto the repair vessel last Saturday. The works have commenced on the repairs of the submarine cable early Monday morning. The south-side cable had the damaged part clear and subsequently, prepared for the jointing, by Wednesday. Works then commenced on the north-side cable in preparation for the final phase of repairs.

Enemalta explained that in parallel with the works being conducted onboard the ASSO Atalani and Ariande vessels, support tasks were also being carried out on land in the Maghtab and Ragusa terminal stations to aid the marine repair operations and also in preparation for the initial testing phase.
