Commercial and consumer service ready for launch in five northern Alaska communitiesQuintillion announced that testing is complete and its subsea fiber optic cable system will be launched in five northern Alaska communities on December 1. Quintillion is a bandwidth services provider and expects its customers to be live shortly thereafter, enabling high speed broadband capability to consumers and businesses in these communities. Crews completed installation of the Alaska Arctic portion of the international Quintillion Subsea Cable System in early October. The system performed flawlessly during test mode and will now be made available to service providers in Utqiaġvik, Wainwright, Point Hope, Nome and Kotzebue, enabling 21st century communications in the Alaska Arctic for the first time.

CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) and Okeanus Science & Technology announced today they are working together to stage a full-range of specialized survey and monitoring equipment in Louisiana to deploy in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Harvey to help evaluate the storm’s impact on coast lines, waterways, bayous, ship channels and terminals, marine infrastructure, and oil and gas related facilities located on or near the water.
Contracted by the State of North Carolina Department of Transportation(NCDOT), CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) is conducting a novel seagrass enhancement project by manipulating wind wave energy to provide new and sustained seagrass acreage in anticipation of unavoidable impacts, creating essentially an open-water “living shoreline,” although in the absence of an actual shore. The Bonner Bridge, which connects Hatteras and Bodie islands at the Oregon Inlet—a lifeline for tourism and tropical storm evacuation of the North Carolina outer banks—has reached its engineering limits and is being replaced. The potential seagrass impact estimated from the new bridge installation required the recovery of no less than 1.28 acres of highly productive seagrasses, interspersed with widgeon grass. In January, Cape Dredging Company, under contract to CSA, completed installation of the Reefmaker wave attenuation units in coordination with the manufacturer, Atlantic Reefmaker.
