#MarineNotice - PSE Kinsale Energy Limited advises that rock placement works will take place with an associated survey on the Kinsale Head Gas Export Pipeline off the South West Coast of Ireland from today (Wednesday 11 October).

The objective of these works is to stabilise two areas of the export pipeline. The works are expected to last for nine days.

Works will be carried out by the fallpipe rock placement vessel Seahorse (Callsign PCAP). The vessel will have a fallpipe deployed close to the seabed. Regular safety messages will be broadcast on VHF Channel 16.

All vessels, particularly those engaged in fishing, are requested to give the Seahorse a wide berth and keep a sharp lookout in the relevant areas. In case of any doubt, call the Seahorse on VHF Channel 16 and a safe course to follow will be given.

Full details of the work area are included in Marine Notice No 44 of 2017, a PDF of which is available to read or download HERE.
