Maritech International  has completed a USD $14.5 million a subsea power cable installation in for New Foundland Power Inc., Maritech announced.


Maritech, a provider of subsea installations and marine works to the international oil and gas, telecommunications and power transmission industries, installed 12km of subsea power cables from from Bell Island to Broad Cove.


“The new cable system, which has an expected service life in excess of 40 years, is set to completely eradicate the repeated power outages,” said Byron Skaftouros, Projects & Development Director for Maritech. “With annual repairs to the previous power link to Bell Island hovering near USD$1 million, thousands spent in repairs will be saved. We are extremely pleased to have made it possible for the aging cables to be replaced efficiently, without disrupting supply of electricity to Bell Island."


The two 6km cable segments were laid and secured on the rocky seabed in water depths of up to 135 meters, in just 22 hours. To achieve this, Maritech provided a complete turnkey solution, featuring cable transportation, route survey and engineering, installation, post-lay protection and burial, as well as termination and jointing works.
