VANCOUVER, BC, April 01, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Alta Gas, a leading North American energy infrastructure company, contacted the AXISTECH Team in early 2015 regarding several BC Hydro facilities in need of fibre optic termination testing and installation. The three facilities, Forrest Kerr, Volcano Creek, and McLymont Creek, are all located 1,000 km northwest of Vancouver, British Columbia.
AXISTECH promptly dispatched one of their top "large project foreman", David Mayhew, a specialist in Outside Fibre-Optic Installation Capabilities, to the Forrest Kerr facility to ascertain the specific challenges of the BC Hydro structure. After weeks of extensive fibre-optic assessment, design, plan and installation, the six-turbine Forrest Kerr plant was nearing completion.
As deadlines were looming the AXISTECH team stepped up and completed a much larger scope than originally anticipated. The team provided Cisco network switches, specialty fibre converters, communications equipment and specialty cables. The fibre team terminated OPGW fibre cables that run together with the power lines along with the ground conductor.
Site monitoring was a core strategy in the next stage of this multi-million dollar Forrest Kerr hydroelectric plant. The Teams wanted to ensure the surrounding areas and river were also equipped with a security and surveillance system complete with CCTV Cameras and real-time remote monitoring of the facility, grounds and river blockages. In-turn, AXISTECH custom designed and installed Forrest Kerr's first technology-driven surveillance and monitoring system.
