Gusty winds during stormy weather can cause downed power lines which greatly impact business continuity. Although, emergency restoration teams are immediately deployed for necessary repairs, depending on the extent of damage, it can often take days or weeks to fully restore power. With extensive disruption, repair expenses can be extensive and costly. For this reason and more underground high voltage cable networks make great business sense.

The initial expense of upgrading can be intimidating if all factors are not taken into consideration. But when the advantages are properly laid out, consumers can understand the benefits of underground power line. These advantages will support the initial investment and the decrease in repair and maintenance costs will pay for the installation over-time. Because the lines are underground they cannot be affected by strong wind, ice, snow or other environmental damage. With the decreased potential of the damage that can affect overhead lines, power interruptions are less likely. This means less uncontrollable business interruption.

Underground high voltage cable installation in Boston, MA is highly recommended by commercial electric construction companies. The insulation system involved also means safer and more efficient power transmission. To find out more about the advantages of underground power lines, contact ElecComm.

A Better Option for Underground Fiber Optic Systems for Faster Business Operations

There are many advantages to undergrounding fiber optic cables for telecom networks. However, sometimes the cost and labor intensity can be prohibitive. The numerous benefits of Microtrenching are gradually gaining ground for designing and building telecommunication networks in Plymouth, MA making it a popular option for business and community installations. Microtrenching involves burying fiber cables or by stacking the conduits atop one another in narrow trenches about ¾ inch wide and 12 inches deep.

Because there is less digging involved, excavation work need not to be extensive. This results in a reduction in logistics, time spent on the project, and cost. In fact, with microtrenching, these factors can be cut by almost half that of traditional underground cable installation. In burying under roads, the trench cut is repaired with a minor patch. For grassy areas, the soil is replaced and can be reseeded immediately. Micro trenching also allows storage of fiber optic cable slack for easy fiber optic splicing work during network expansion, repair, and maintenance.

Microtrenching is applicable in both urban and rural settings. Unlike above ground installations, fiber optic microtrenches are not as susceptible to external forces, enabling smooth communications even in adverse weather conditions. Eleccomm’s team of network technicians and engineers is always prepared for telecommunication network design installations. For more information, contact ElecComm.
