WFN Strategies is presently accomplishing the end-to-end desktop route study of the 15,000+ km Arctic Fibre submarine cable system.
WFN Strategies’ executive Desktop Study (eDTS) is an expedited version of a “regular” desktop study, but produced in a shortened timeframe, and providing only essential data and analysis for eventual supplier system consideration. An in-depth analysis using all readily available data sources along the route in question is performed in order to produce a preliminary route and associated maps. The data used to derive the route and the maps is summarized in the route’s metadata and on the associated charts.
“WFN Strategies is very pleased to be providing on-going engineering and implementation support for the Arctic Fibre submarine cable system,” said Wayne Nielsen, Managing Director for WFNS. “The Arctic Fibre project allows us to utilize diverse Arctic and Antarctic developed expertise in a single significantly large and technically challenging system.”
Upon completion of the eDTS in August, Arctic Fibre will issue a formal request for proposal to construct the network. The Arctic Fibre eDTS will underpin an extensive marine survey, which will be conducted in 2013.
