Aquatic Gears for Power Cable Project Off Canada
Aquatic Engineering and Construction has been awarded a contract to lay power cables for the main provider of electricity in British Columbia, Canada.
The shallow water project will start later this week in the tidal estuary of the Strait of Georgia and it will see Aquatic deliver its multi-reel solution.
Aquatic will be laying approximately 15 km of 87 mm diameter electrical power cable, and will be operating in a busy shipping lane between Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia, close to the US border.
The equipment was mobilised from Aquatic’s US base at Morgan City, Louisiana.
Richard Charles, sales and business development manager, Aquatic, said: “Our recent successes, such as the umbilical installation project with Mermaid Subsea Services in the Middle East earlier this year, have demonstrated our multi-reel capability and expertise in delivering an integrated managed service. Our people and equipment, once mobilised, will partner with the subcontractor’s teams effectively, within the agreed timescales (weather permitting) and to budget.”
