Job completed for Silver Creek Materials

Completion date: December 6, 2020

Location: Fort Worth, TX

Why did the customer contact us?

We were contacted by Silver Creek Materials in regards to bidding on a fiber solution between three of their buildings at their mining site in Fort Worth, TX.

Solutions provided:

The solution we implemented was an outdoor loose tube single-mode fiber installation with 6 strands at their Fort Worth TX location.  The fiber cable pull through underground conduit with several ninety degrees turns was very difficult but we got it pulled.  The next step was to strip back the cable and install the fanout kits and then fusion splice on LC pigtails for a pretty solid low loss solution. The project took two full days over a weekend.  Out customer, IT contact was very helpful and easy to work with which makes any project easier even when the physical part is difficult.  We ended up pulling over 2000 feet of underground cable between three buildings, fusion splicing on 24 ends, and certifying all 12 strands with our Owl Certification tool.


This customer was very please with the successful installation.  He told us his boss was very happy because the first vendor was unsuccessful and we made it seem so easy (haha).  The selection process was so long on our original bid that I thought we did not win this so when they called and selected us I was surprised.  They had several vendors come out and walk the site and discuss the solution.  They liked our approach and explanation of how we thought we would implement it along with our plans A, B, and C depending on how difficult the fiber pull was going to be. We are very pleased when a customer is happy with our work.
