Description: Installation of subsea fiber optic cables from multiple shore landings in Western Alaska to the North Slope of Alaska. Utilizing Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) the cable was safely installed from shoreside stations through the permafrost zone and daylighted offshore. Divers jetting the cable from shallow water to deep water offshore were the deep draft cable lay ship connected to the cable. The team dealt with harsh work conditions of the Arctic Circle and ensuring the cable was installed correctly to avoid dangers from ice bergs.
