Petroleum Authority of Thailand (PTT) has chosen a bridged TETRA solution from DAMM for the replacement of the radio communication system used for their Gas Separation Plant (GSP).
Included in the redundant, decentralised solution are base stations, dispatchers, log server, network management system and DAMM’s smartphone solution as well as a DAMM TetraFlex Group Bridge that bridges to the existing system.
Mr Witchukorn Naewwong, Business Director at DAMM Partner Seanet Asia, explains that PTT chose a DAMM solution because, “It guaranteed cost-efficiency, low power consumption, flexibility and scalability. And just as importantly it let them bridge to their existing system, enabling them to perform a less cost-heavy gradual replacement”.
The installation and commissioning of the DAMM solution is indeed just phase 1 of a major replacement plan by PTT.
Asked about the outcome of the installation, Mr Witchukorn Naewwong explained that “it solves the problem that PTT had with an outdated TETRA solution and bridges seamlessly to their existing system in exactly the way they needed it to. On top of that the open API allows them to easily integrate third-party applications, allowing them to customize the solution to their exact needs and saving on costs for new applications.”
DAMM Regional Manager Desmond Cheong is equally pleased with the handover of the project, which he believes is the right solution for PTT.
