Case Study:  Cable Landing Station

Contact Whitley Manufacturing


With their proven experience in the global submarine fiber optic cable industry, American Manufactured Systems and Services (AMSS) got the call to oversee permits, design and installation of two new cable landing stations in Newfoundland. As their strategic partner for modular mechanical enclosures, AMSS worked directly with Whitley Manufacturing to build and test the structure in Leola, Pennsylvania. Some of the key challenges were the shoreline location and its harsh, caustic environment. The inside temperature would need to be well regulated with redundant HVAC systems. Because of the rugged, remote location, getting material and equipment on site would be limited. So, building and testing as much off-site as possible was vital.

To address these issues, Whitley Manufacturing provided the following:
• A costal corrosion package, including stainless steel doors and hardware
• 4” reinforced concrete floor
• Only non-combustible materials in construction were used
• Fiber Cement or Exposed Aggregate siding for strength & durability
• Wall mounted HVAC equipment
• FRP wall & ceiling panels
• A complete back-up generator system was installed at the factory in Leola and performance tested
Once the modules arrived on site, AMSS was able to have everything in place and
functioning within seven days.
