M.V. MARKINC., we bring many years of practical experience
to the installation of all types of underground and submarine transmission
lines, including pipe-type cables, pressurized fluid-filled cables
and solid electric cabling systems.
addition to the high voltage work M.V. MARKINC. devotes
the same attention to the commercial and industrial fields:
plant additions, plant rewiring, installation of boiler systems,
etc. For M.V.MARK INC. no work is too small or too big.
All are important to us.

the breakdown. A very substantial inventory on our premises allows
us to tackle just about any type of problem which could arise. We

equipment fleet is recognized nationally as amongst the
most comprehensive in the industry. And if the equipment doesn't
exist - M.V.MARKINC. will build it. For example, we developed
a motorized cable reel, which allowed us to lay over 26 kilometers
of 25 kv submarine cable from the Ontario mainland to Pelee Island
in Lake Erie, again with no field splices.

Among our most challenging contracts was a 6.5 kilometer
underground cable installation for Alcatel
Canada Wire - Ontario Hydro in downtown Toronto
along Lakeshore Boulevard, one of the cities busiest arteries. M.V.MARK
carried out all aspects of this project including the excavation,
welding and installing of the pipe, backfilling, cable installing,
jointing and terminating, degassifying and installing of the oil and

specialists are equally at home under the ground or under
the water. Between Lotbinière and Grondines, Québec,
we installed two 450 kv DC fluid filled circuits, along with two spare
cables, through a tunnel under the St. Lawrence River for Hitachi
Cable - Hydro-Québec.
Not a remarkable accomplishment perhaps... until you consider that
we were required to install over 5 kilometers of cable in
one continuous length with no joints what so ever! This installation,
the first in the world of it's magnitude, was completed on schedule
in just a year.
