Major Scandinavian port selects Sepura radios.
Sepura TETRA radios will enable the smooth running of operations at the Copenhagen Malm Port (CMP) in Scandinavia. This contract was made possible by Swedish Radio Supply AB (SRS), Sepura’s long-standing and successful distributor in Sweden and their partner Malm ES Elektro Sandberg AB.
CMP is the second largest port in Scandinavia, in recent years it has undergone a comprehensive expansion, due to increased car import/export operations into Northern Europe via Malm. CMP runs two highly modern car terminals whose combined physical storagecapacity reaches over 10,000 cars.
The decision to replace the existing analogue radio network with the new digital system was determined by an official notice to change the frequency band, issued by the Swedish National Post and Telecom Agency (Post & Telestyrelsen) in 2005. CMP realised that this change would require the replacement of the overall communication equipment. They selected Damm’s Tetraflex TETRA infrastructure and Sepura hand-held SRH3800 and mobile SRM3500 radios. In particular, the CMP had the specific need to expand its communication system from Sweden to the Danish side of the port and to allow connectivity between Malm and the Danish capital.
Jonas Hoke, Sales Account Manager for SRS AB. commented: “CMP chose Sepura TETRA radios as user-friendliness and extensive customisation capabilities were very important factors in the selection of TETRA terminals. At the same time, the radios needed to be robust and hard-wearing since the port is a harsh and extreme environment where most tasks are performed outdoors”.
