UnderSea Fibre Optic Cable Installation (148937)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New
Proponent name: Jean-Francois Bouchard
Company: Department of Community and Government Services, Government of Nunavut
Schedule:
Start Date: 2019-05-30
End Date: 2019-12-01
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
The Undersea Fibre Optic Cable Installation Linking Greenland, Nunavut and Quebec Project will construct a state-of-the-art submarine fiber optic system connecting Iqaluit, Kimmirut and Cape Dorset with an international connection to Nuuk, Greenland and Milton, Newfoundland. The installation will include the capability to connect to northern Baffin Island and western Hudson Bay in the future. An additional component of the project is proposed to install fibre optic cable from Sanikiluaq to the system being installed by the Kativik Regional Government. Approximately 2,400km of fibre optic cable will be installed including all submarine and cable landing infrastructure including the fibre optical cable, powered repeaters, line terminating equipment, power-feeding equipment, and monitoring equipment. Internet providers in Nunavut will then have access to high speed connectivity for distribution to their customers.
