This Barge has a concrete deck evenly spaced with H Beam rungs and a 60" fence around the perimeter that is ideal for our pulling equipment and loading of the cable by Mexus' fully automated track pulling shearing system, specifically designed by Mexus for the cable project. The pulling system has completed the first test runs and is now being readied for shipment to a ship yard in Washington State for installing on the Barge. Completion time is expected to be September 18th.
Mexus Gold U.S. Surveying Boat Purchased. Mexus has purchased a 33' Pro Line offshore boat for the purpose of surveying and identifying the cable on the ocean floor. The boat is big enough to do the work safely but still can be trailered from site to site by road or ferries. Mexus has ordered specially designed underwater electrical equipment, a magtonetor, an underwater cable identifier, remote cameras and a high definition scanning sensor and a cable lift buoy marking system.
President/CEO Paul Thompson stated, "With the purchase of this equipment, and our previously announced contract with PowerCom Services we are ready to rapidly move forward toward collecting cable and starting the generation of multiple revenue streams for Mexus."
