Maritime Link update

The 170km subsea cable part of the Maritime Link is now resting on the bottom of Cabot Strait.

The cable is the first of two to be laid between Point Aconi and Cap Ray.  They will begin laying the second one next month.

The big wires will allow Newfoundland and Labrador to supply electricity to Nova Scotia from Muskrat Falls which is still under construction, but Emera hopes to have power flowing through the cable before the end of the year.
