Sumitomo Electric secures cable contract in Alaska

In: Cables
Sumitomo Electric Industries has been awarded a contract for the Stikine Crossing Submarine Cable Replacement Project from the Southeast Alaska Power Agency (SEAPA) through its subsidiary, Sumitomo Electric USA.

The purpose of this project is to remove and discard one existing 138 kV OF (Oil Filled) submarine power cable and install an environmentally friendly 69 kV XLPE (Cross-linked polyethylene) submarine cable with ancillary equipment for a fully functional system in the Stikine crossing (approx. 16,700 feet) between Vank and Woronkofski Islands, near Wrangell, Alaska, USA.

The work commenced in November and is expected to be completed by the end of October 2021.

In 2018, Sumitomo Electric completed a very similar project in relatively close waters for Orcas Power & Light Cooperative, Washington, USA.
