Orkustofnun has authorized seabed research for a sea cable


Orkustofnun has granted the company Atlantic Superconnection Corporation a license to study the seabed southeast of Iceland due to a potential sea cable between Iceland and UK.

The research is estimated to take place between June 1 and September 1 2015 by the vessel Stril Explorer. 

The study involves geophysical measurements of the seabead with the purpose of finding an acceptable route for a sea cable. The company is required to deliver a copy of their data to Orkustofnun, to be kept confidential.
