RWE Power selects Sepura in Germany
RWE Power AG, one of Europe’s largest power producers, has selected Sepura’s TETRA products to help track and manage its coal-based power operations in Germany. Over 2,000 Sepura terminals will be deployed on a new private TETRA network over the next three years. The contract was won in conjunction with Frequentis, which specialises in the design and operation of specialist TETRA systems for utility providers.
RWE Power operates several open-cast mines in the Rhein region, using state-of-the-art mining machinery. It also manages several production facilities for coal products and its own private railway, which provides links to the company’s four German-based lignite power stations.
“RWE Power needed excellent coverage and the very highest communications availability,” explains Erich Pfaffelmayer, TETRA Director at Frequentis. “They will be using TETRA to undertake communications for everything from logistics, through to safety. Highly resilient handsets, which offer lone-worker features, were important to them. A long technology cycle for the whole solution was also essential, and Sepura demonstrated a proven technology roadmap.”
