5.5km fibre for Atlantic Power

5.5km fibre for Atlantic Power

Sunday 15 February 2015
5km of fibre on poles for Atlantic power in a single run

During the winter of 2014/2015 Base Technology ran 5.5km of fibre for the Mamquam Power Station at Powerhouse Springs in Squamish BC.

5.5km fibre for Atlantic Power

With careful engineering and planning we were able to to run the entire 5.5km span of fibre optic cable in a single strand under difficult operating conditions in the middle of winter.

This project required fastening the fibre cable to each 60ft pole under the high voltage power lines leading from the power station and maintaining the required spacing and tension crossing two roads along 56 poles spaced on average 200ft apart.

Not all of the poles were accessible by road and so our crew climbed these poles and attached the cable so that it could be threaded through the valley between the power station and the intake across variable terrain.

The project was completed safely and promptly.
