Hawaiki Contracts Mirait for Cable Infrastructure in Sydney

Mirait Technologies Australia has signed a contract with Hawaiki Submarine Cable LP, the owner and developer of the Hawaiki submarine cable system, for the build of terrestrial infrastructure in Sydney.

The Hawaiki submarine cable system is a new trans-Pacific cable, which will link Australia and New Zealand to mainland United States, as well as Hawaii, with options to expand to several South Pacific islands. The system will be in service by mid-2018.

Under the multi-million dollar contract, Mirait will design and construct the terrestrial cable duct route from Hawaiki cable landing site in Coogee to the Equinix SY4 datacenter in Alexandria.

Kerry White, CEO of Mirait Technologies Australia, said: “Mirait is proud to be associated to such a land mark link. Hawaiki had stringent compliance requirements and our team managed to put together the right solution and get the highest score among the tentative bidders.”

Remi Galasso, CEO of Hawaiki Submarine Cable LP, said: “This contract represents another step forward for Hawaiki system deployment. We are confident that Mirait will deliver this construction component in the most efficient and timely manner.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
