Preparation has started in Denmark

The first steps to constructing Viking Link in Denmark have just been taken on the beach at Houstrup, where the submarine cable is going to come ashore.


To protect the dunes, a horizontal directional drilling (HDD) will be completed passing underneath. The cables will be pulled through 950 meter long ducts that are installed under the dunes and into the plantation behind the beach. The cable will be pulled through the ducts in 2021.


The drill take place in proximity to the Baltic Pipe project, a gas pipeline that will connect Poland and Denmark with the Norwegian gas fields in the North Sea. The pipeline will land on the same beach as Viking Link, and establishing of the HDD will begin next summer.
