Introduction to DKCPC

DKCPC is a forum of administrations and commercial companies, which own gas-pipes and submarine cables in Danish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

The principal goal of DKCPC is:
To promote the safeguarding of submarine assets from man-made and natural hazards, to the benefit of safe supply and delivery of market demands of gas, electricity and communication services.

Denmark’s infrastructure

  • Gas pipes, Tele- and power cables are very important parts of the infrastructure in Denmark
  • The cables and gas pipes in Danish waters requires special attention, because of the risk of unintended damage, caused by fishing or anchoring
  • Repair of subsea Assets are expensive and takes long time, compared with repairs on shore
  • Damages on subsea assets therefore affects the security of supply, and the delivery of market demands of gas, electricity and communication services.

Protection zone of 200 meters

  • Normally the cables are buried in the seabed, but in dynamic waters the seabed can move, there is no guaranties of non-exposed cables

  • To prevent damages there is a 200-meter protection zone on each side of the assets / cables, where other use of the seabed is prohibited
