WFN in Hudson Bay Subsea Cable Study

WFN Strategies has been selected by Ambra Solutions to carry out a study for a submarine cable connecting Canada’s Nunavut region and Manitoba.

Submarine cable system implementation company WFN Strategies will be accomplishing its executive Desktop Study (eDTS), an abbreviated analysis using readily available data sources along the route in question performed to produce a preliminary route and associated charting.

“WFN Strategies is honored to be supporting Ambra and end-customer, Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd., in what could become the first submarine cable implementation in Hudson Bay,” said managing director Wayne Nielsen. “We are thrilled to be using once again our Arctic system expertise, which we have been developing over several years, as well as supporting our first mining company end user.”

For the Hudson Bay Submarine Cable Study, the data used to derive the route and the maps will be summarized in the route’s metadata and on the chartlets, and a system design and component budgetary estimate will be provided to Ambra and Agnico Eagle Mines for eventual system feasibility considerations.

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.
