In 1989 we were contracted by Telstra to install 14k of Fibre
Optic Cable through the Brisbane Waters, Central Coast. This
work was undertaken by hand jetting and we knew that there
must be an easier way. A dredging sled system to bury cable
was developed by us and is now proven.
system we undertook the installation of 4 Fibre Optic Cables,
each 10ks in length across Broken Bay, Palm Beach to Umina
Beach. We achieved a bury rate of up to 14mtrs/min to a
depth of 2mtrs beneath seabed in 18mtrs of water.
recent application of our system was used on cable installation
from Brooklyn to Patonga in 2000. We used a lighter system
and we achieved a depth of 1.2mtrs at speeds of up to 10mtrs/min.
Our proven track record in cable installation, system development
etc. is well documented within the communication industry
and this has become a specialty.
