Weather and strikes delayed SABELLA’s D10 cable connection

Despite of SABELLA’s team efforts, the cable connection operation to Ushant island for the 1MW D10 tidal turbine which was planned to be realized between July 24th and July 27th was delayed till the end of August.

In addition to the recent farmer’s strike in France, which has blocked several roads across the country and postponed the arrival of the required equipment, the weather conditions did not allow the company to perform the connection phase. 

SABELLA project manager Jean-Christophe Allo said: “We just had time to put everything in order for the operation, and to test all the connectors, but without any possibilities to connect them. We hope the weather forecast will be better end of August to retry it.”
