Mackenzie Valley Fibre Line construction completed

Posted on March 29, 2017

The Mackenzie Valley Fibre Link (MVFL) achieved a major milestone on March 16, 2017 as the last two splice locations were installed, officially completing the construction of the 1,154 km fibre line between Inuvik and High Level, Alberta.

With this, the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) is one step closer to fulfilling its mandate commitment to complete the Mackenzie Valley Fibre Optic Link in order to help modernize the economy and enable growth in all economic sectors.

The project now moves into the next phase of work, which will consist of testing the performance and functionality before commissioning the system for service. The commencement target for the MVFL is June 1, 2017.

Inuvik is geographically gifted due its favorable Arctic location to track and receive data in real-time from polar-orbiting satellites. The GNWT, through the success of the MVFL, looks forward to continuing to support the growth of the remote-sensing and commercial satellite industry in Inuvik.

MVLF Point of Presence locations are now located in Fort Simpson, Wrigley, Tulita, Norman Wells, Fort Good Hope, Inuvik, and in High Level. Fibre Cable consists of 48 individual fibres, each capable of 88 Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) channels per fibre, and 100 Gbit/s per (DWDM) channel.

The P3 project, valued at approximately $84 million, is being built by the Northern Lights General Partnership (NLGP), a consortium led by Ledcor Developments Ltd., LTS Infrastructure Services Limited Partnership, and Northwestel Inc.
