BT Plc has installed fibre optic cables across a record-breaking 20 seabed crossings as part of the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband Scheme. BT described the operation as the most complex underwater engineering challenge it has ever undertaken. A-2-Sea was proud to play a part in the successful installation.

  • A-2-Sea installed all of the beach joints connecting the subsea cable to BT’s land network.
  • The project involved 20 separate crossings and 40 beach joints.
  • Despite the complexity of the operation, the project was completed on budget and on schedule.

Brendan Dick, director of BT Scotland, said: “This has been the most complex subsea project BT has tackled in UK waters, as well as being the largest number of seabed cables laid in a single weather window. I’m so proud of the endeavour shown by the whole team to overcome the technical and environmental challenges.”
