Quintillion Subsea Cable System Phase 1 In-Service 2017!
Crews manning a variety of specialized marine vessels, including the two main cable laying ships C/V Ile de Sein and C/V Ile de Brehat, spent this summer and fall installing Phase 1 of the Quintillion Subsea Cable System off the northern coast of Alaska. Phase 1 connects the Alaska communities of Nome, Kotzebue, Point Hope, Wainwright, Barrow and Prudhoe Bay to the main subsea cable trunk running between Nome and Prudhoe Bay. We look forward to being in-service in 2017! Check out our Gallery for photos of 2016 construction.
