Grounding out explained

The story behind the Maersk Connector’s planned beaching

"With this project we used excavators on the beach to bury the first 3 kilometres of cable. And from then out we used our cable plough which lays and buries the cable in one simultaneous operation. The vessel’s anchor system was a big development on this project – providing up to 150 tonnes of bollard pull to pull the plough."
