Company’s first submarine cable study for mining industry
10 April 2017
STERLING, VIRGINIA – WFN Strategies has been selected by Ambra Solutions to accomplish a study for a prospective 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.
