Sønderborg, Denmark May 2019: DAMM and their Systems Partner Wellracom have successfully commenced an upgrade from an existing analog system to a digital TETRA communication solution for PT Amman Mineral Nusa Tenggara (Amman Mineral), a mining company in Indonesia. DAMM has delivered five 2-carrier DAMM Outdoor Base Station BS421s for voice and data communication for the entire mining operation. Key factors for choosing DAMM were the cost-efficiency and scalability of the system combined with the open API.
A communication solution is worth gold
Desmond Cheong, Regional Manager at DAMM, states, “This has been an exciting project for us. It is great for us to demonstrate our ability to deliver communication in challenging conditions, a success that can be attributed to the high quality of our DAMM TetraFlex solution as well as our great collaboration with Wellracom.”
Making million-dollar decisions every day, workers and managers in mines rely heavily on communication to keep the business moving. This means that access to information and communication anytime and anywhere is key both for workers and managers.
Mr Suprapto, Managing Director of Wellracom Group, explains that DAMM has a proven track record in the mining industry and adds that, “The challenge in the mining industry in Indonesia is to secure communication 24/7 to minimize any disruption to operations.”
Seamless migration and integration
To facilitate the gradual migration to the new TETRA system, Amman Mineral has deployed a DAMM TetraFlex Group Bridge, which enables communication between the two different technologies. This has ensured a seamless migration and smooth integration. The site will eventually become fully digitalized.
