Cape Romain Featured Project

SCE&G Subaqueous Power Line


  • Owner: SCE&G
  • Prime Contractor: UTEC Constructors Corp.
  • Completion Date:  March 2014

Scope of Services:

Cape Romain has assisted UTEC Constructors Corp. of Boston Massachusetts in their contract with SCE&G to install a new power supply from Mt Pleasant, SC to Isle of Palms, SC. Installation was by directional drilling.

Due to the long distance the main run had to be installed in three sections. The splices were in Hamlin Creek. Cape Romain assisted in loading equipment and materials, transportation to splice location, setting up for drilling and pulling operations and then finally assisting in placing pipe/cable overboard in a pre-dug ditch at each splice location. After backfilling, the trench will be covered with articulated concrete mats.

The final lowering of pipe into the trench from the two splice platforms will be done in February and March of 2014.
