The Department of Transport has been advised that Kinsale Energy plans to undertake decommissioning activities on the subsea infrastructure in the Kinsale Head and Seven Heads gas fields.

These works are due to commence on or around Tuesday 10 May and are estimated to last 20 days, weather depending.

The operation will be conducted by the construction support vessel Skandi Constructor (callsign C6ZH8), which will be on VHF Channel 13.

Works will involve the use of subsea construction equipment on and around the subsea infrastructure, including remotely operated vehicles/equipment.

All vessels operating in its vicinity are requested to keep their distance and pass at minimum speed to reduce vessel wash.

Coordinates of the works areas, contact details and more can be found in Marine Notice No 20 of 2022, attached below.
