The challenge, solution and success of protecting the Channel Islands Electricity Grid (CIEG) submarine energy and telecommunications cables.
Who: Channel Islands Electricity Grid (CIEG)
Sector: Energy and Telecommunications
Location: English Channel, Channel Islands
Channel Island Electricity Grid (CIEG) has two 90,000 volt cables running along the sea bed from France to Jersey to Guernsey; supplying power and fibre optic communications to a population of more than 160,000.
AssetMonitor provides a 100km long and, at its widest, a 2km wide protection zone around these cables. We monitor vessel activity in the busy Channel, informing CIEG of any potential trespassing before it occurs, therefore crucially avoiding damage to their subsea assets.
"Our key objective is to provide greater security for the critical infrastructure off the Channel Islands. AssetMonitor helps us to do this." Sally-Ann David. Director
