Alaska Undersea Video Case Study

Submarine Cable System – An initiative by Alaska Communications Systems

Since PCI typically deals with aerial and terrestrial builds, driving submarine cables through the ocean floor was a new opportunity to explore a different type of project. The objective of this project was to increase the communications capacity and associated bandwidth between Alaska and the continental United States as well as provide redundancy, thereby improving the reliability of the existing network.

PCI provided the prime contractor with a dedicated project manager to assist with the project and to source materials that were outside of the norm for a traditional communications build. When an issue did occur with the drill stem, PCI arranged for four (4) trucks to rush the material from the U.S. jobsite back to Canada to get fixed and then back to the U.S. jobsite – all within a 48 hour time period.
