Southern Christchurch to conserve power after cable outage
An Orion contractor has smashed through a major underground cable in Christchurch, leaving the southern suburbs on back-up power and nearly killing himself twice in the process.
Orion Energy has two major underground cables encased in thick concrete running to the southern suburbs. Each cable carries 66,000 volts.
The contractor was working on repairs to the water network, which was damaged during last month's earthquake, when he smashed one of the underground cables, chief executive Roger Sutton told NZPA.
"These are the most important cables in the city. He was very lucky not to kill himself twice. Firstly when he smashed through the heavy concrete and then when he pushed a metal bung into the hole."
He was lucky he was not stronger when he pushed the bung in and did not hit the cable itself, Mr Sutton said.
Residents in the southern suburbs were being urged to conserve power as it would take about a week to repair the cable.
"If you are using your oven for a hot meal then try and share it, don't use any heating, take short showers. It will be a long slow process to repair the damage -- I don't think this has happened before."
Mr Sutton said he did not blame the contractor who had probably been working long hours for the last few weeks and was only trying to do what he thought was the right thing.
Christchurch's eastern suburbs were the most affected by the February 22 earthquake, where power was knocked out to the majority of homes.
Asia Telecom Firms Rush To Repair Quake Damage To Undersea Cables
By Owen Fletcher and Juro Osawa
Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES
BEIJING (Dow Jones)--Asia's major telecom operators scrambled Monday to eliminate the impact on their operations from damage to several submarine cables following the massive earthquake and resulting tsuanmi last week in Japan.
Many telecom operators were reporting some disruptions in Internet access Monday, though the partial restoration of service was accomplished by rerouting traffic over undamaged cables and via satellites.
Most international Internet data and voice phone calls are transmitted as pulses of light via the hundreds of undersea fiber optic cables that crisscross the globe. The cables, which can cost hundreds of millions of dollars, are typically owned by consortia of telecom companies, who share costs and capacity. While the clusters of glass fibers are enclosed in protective material, they remain vulnerable to undersea earthquakes, fishing trawlers and ship anchors. There are also many choke points around the globe where a number of key cables converge.
While the extent of the damage to undersea cables is still unclear and financial losses unknown, operators said they are undergoing an inspection and looking to expedite restoration.
Japanese telecom operator KDDI Corp. (9433.TO) said Monday one of its undersea cables between Japan and the U.S. has been damaged by the earthquake and is unable to transmit any signals.
"We don't know if the cable has been cut, or if it's a connection problem," said a KDDI spokesman. "We won't know what the problem is exactly, until we pull up the cable and check the damaged part."
The damaged part is far offshore, and it may take a while for KDDI to identify and address the problem but services are recovering after the quake, as the company can bypass the damaged part and use other cables instead, he said.
Pacific Crossing, a unit of Japan's NTT Communications Corp. that operates a cable network between Japan and the U.S., said Monday the Pacific Crossing PC-1 W and PC-1 N parts of its network remained out of service due to the earthquake.
NTT Communications said some of its services for enterprises were partially unavailable in Japan's Tohoku region, but that for submarine cables between Japan, other parts of Asia and the U.S. the company is using backup cable routes to maintain uninterrupted service.
PCCW Ltd. (0008.HK), Hong Kong's dominant fixed-line operator, said Internet traffic to some international destinations, especially the U.S., is still experiencing slower speeds due to several damaged cables that land in Japan. PCCW, which provides broadband Internet in Hong Kong, didn't release details on the damage or how many users have been affected. The affected cables will be repaired in "the coming weeks," the company said in a statement, and "customers may experience slower response than normal."
An official from Taiwan operator Chunghwa Telecom Co. (2412.TW) said Friday the earthquake caused damage near Kita on the eastern coast of Japan to an undersea cable that belongs to the Asia Pacific Cable Network 2, which is owned by a consortium of 14 telecom operators led by AT&T Inc. (T). AT&T didn't immediately reply to a request for comment.
In another report of damage, Hong Kong-based cable-network operator Pacnet said the earthquake affected the company's EAC cable near Ajigaura, on the eastern coast of Japan, and it was preparing for repairs and measures to reduce service disruption.
China Telecom Corp. (CHA), China's largest fixed-line operator by subscribers, was making emergency repairs on Friday to undersea cables damaged by the earthquake, Xinhua News Agency reported. The company said submarine fiber-optic cables connecting Japan and North America and a Pacific Crossing 1 cable near the city of Kitaibaraki, in Japan's northern Ibaraki Prefecture, were malfunctioning due to the earthquake. A China Telecom spokeswoman was not immediately able to comment on Monday on the status of the repairs.
A spokesman for China United Network Communications Group Co., the parent company of Chinese operator China Unicom (Hong Kong) Ltd. (CHU), said the effect of the undersea cable damage on operations was limited as the company had adjusted routers to redirect data along undamaged paths.
South Korean telecom operator KT Corp. (KT) said a cable that is part of the Japan-U.S. Cable Network was cut in the earthquake, but the company rerouted traffic to other submarine cables to avoid service disruptions. KT owns a 1.6% stake in the Japan-U.S. Cable Network, it said.
An official at SK Telink Corp., an affiliate of South Korean operator SK Telecom Co. (SKM) that owns a stake of less than 1% in the Japan-U.S. Cable Network, said the company saw no service disruption as it rerouted international traffic through other cables within three hours of the outage.
In the Philippines, Bayan Telecommunications Inc. said the quake disrupted some of its digital subscriber line services. "Forty percent of our total capacity was affected. That is why some experienced a slow down in Internet connection. But we expect all to normalize within the day," said Bayan vice president for corporate brand and communications John Rojo.
Globe Telecom Inc. (GLO.PH) spokesperson Yolly Crisanto said: "a couple of landing stations in Japan were reported to have been affected by the catastrophe. Globe redirected traffic to ensure continued services to clients."
Some operators were unaffected. A spokeswoman for Australian operator Telstra Corp. (TLS.AU) said none of the company's undersea cable infrastructure was damaged.
Friday's massive earthquake in Japan and tsunami have raised the official death toll to 1,597 as of Sunday night. More than 200,000 people have been moved to relief shelters, while millions of residences in Japan remain without power and water.
