TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. (NYSE: TEL) company, said that it is ready to begin groundbreaking and construction for a beach landing project serving multiple submarine cables and users in Southern California. Easements, permitting, and agreements are complete for the landing project, and groundbreaking will begin in five days, says TE SubCom.
By using horizontal directional drilling to install bore pipes for the shore-end landing, the project will have minimal effect on the environment of the beach and tidal area, TE SubCom affirms.
"Starting the construction of these bore pipes is a significant milestone for us," said Chris Carobene, TE SubCom vice president of marine services. "The project will enable a gateway to greater information capacity and significantly increased speed. We are eager to begin and looking forward to completion of the work."
TE SubCom is also involved with deployment of the U.S. domestic segment of the Hawaiki Submarine Cable between Oregon and Hawaii, which surpassed the halfway mark in January, and should be ready for service in June 2018 (see "Transpacific Hawaiki Submarine Cable progresses toward June 2018 ready for service date").
