Gwynt y Môr: Export Cable Repair – Update & Marker Buoy, May 2021

This is a further update to Mariners about the cable repair work that is being carried out on the export cable for the Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm.

  • Location:  53°23.052’N  003° 35.481’W (WGS 84).
  • Specification: Yellow buoy, tall black pillar, north cardinal shape.
