In 2006, Dunstans Construction Group was contracted by Silcar Communications to lay 32km of Fibre Optic Cable (FOC) for telecommunications within the Francis township area in South Australia.
Dunstans undertook and completed the project very successfully, meeting the client’s milestones and exceeding their expectations. The project was completed in line with all safety and quality standards.
- Dunstans utilised a specially designed, zero tension plough, mounted on a D7 Bulldozer.
- Pre-ripping was undertaken with a D9 Bulldozer.
- The installation of the cable was undertaken through the farmland and roadside areas of South Australia.
Due to the successful completion of this FOC install project, Dunstans was then allocated numerous other contracts for FOC installations that saw the team move through South Australia into Western Australia over the next 2 years.
