Update on Cable Installation
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
We are making good progress, and the weather has been beautiful today.
We have completed plow burial on Segment 2 and Segment 3 over the past couple days, and we are now switching back to ROV operations to bury the ends of these two segments to protect them from fishing activity. ROV work is a bit tedious, and it will be a few more days before we start again with plow installation of our last segment (Segment 4). We are looking forward to this event!
