Celebrating 100 years of NilsenSince 1916

Untangling a tricky fibre optic challenge in Darwin

Nilsen was invited to partner with the Power and Water Authority in bringing new Single Mode Optical Fibre (SMOF) to the Northern Territory government. This was no small task, considering that it meant designing, surveying, and installing 43km of fibre optic cable.

The trenching and earth works began in January, but nobody had anticipated that it would be one of the wettest seasons ever recorded, which made the work more difficult. In addition, Nilsen were asked to hand over 70% of the network to Optus one month earlier than originally intended. Fortunately, with some careful re-planning, and workers rotating on 3 8-hour shifts (to splice a 24 hour day), Nilsen were able to make it happen.

Meanwhile in the Darwin CBD, 144 core fibres were laid within high voltage underground tunnels and ducts. To keep disruption to a minimum, all cable installation was done at night time – and of course, in the rain!
