St Ives Bay - Cornwall Wave Hub

The Nordica - Cable Laying Ship - Cornwall Wave Hub


The Nordica - carrying 15 miles of cable for the Cornwall Wave Hub, arrived in St Ives Bay this week. Photographed here from Westcotts Quay.

The cable will be floated onto Hayle Towans, winched up the beach and connected to a nearby electricity sub-station. The Nordica will then deploy the cable 10 miles offshore to the site of the wave hub, with underwater trenching machines burying it in the sea bed. The hub itself will then be lowered to the sea bed and connected.
