The Cable Reburial contractors successfully completed the launching and pulling back of the conduit for the mainland cable yesterday. This marks the completion of both the Wind Farm and the Mainland cable conduits, arguably the steps in the project most likely to incur problems or setbacks. Within the next few days the equipment at the beach will begin to demobilize and leave the island and the next teams will begin to arrive and set up for the cable installation and connections.
Meanwhile the beach is now clear for walkers with both two legs and four so enjoy this mild January weather while it lasts!
