TE SubCom recently announced that easements, permitting and agreements are complete and groundbreaking and construction will begin in five days on a beach landing project that will serve multiple subsea cables and users in Los Angeles, California. The project will use horizontal directional drilling to install bore pipes for the shoreend landing due to the minimal impact this type of operation has on the environment of the beach and tidal area.

LAX beachhead will provide access to preinstalled infrastructure for multiple cables and users in the region.

Chris Carobene, vice president of marine services at TE SubCom said, “Starting the construction of these bore pipes is a significant milestone for us. The project will enable a gateway to greater information capacity and significantly increased speed. We are eager to begin and looking forward to completion of the work.” Carobene added, “We continue to progress the project according to schedule and look forward to aiding our customers with this critical enabling infrastructure”.
