Breagh Pipelines - Exposed Fibre Optic Cable



The Breagh fibre optic cable (PL2770) is exposed on the seabed along various stages of the route between Redcar and the Breagh A platform.


A scallop dredger became snagged on an exposed section of the fibre optic cable in June 2019 causing serious damage to the fibre optic cable and subsequently had to abandon retrieval of his gear for safety reasons.  This notification is made to the fishermen, operating between Redcar and the Breagh A platform, to be advised that the fibre optic cable represents a serious snag risk to both scallop dredgers and static gear fishing in the vicinity of the line.

 

Fishermen are advised to stay away from the line to avoid the risk of becoming snagged on the unburied sections of cable.
