Tait Communications commissions new radio system on the coast of Borneo

Christchurch-based critical communications company commissions a new radio system for Indonesian oil exploration operations on the coast of Borneo.

Christchurch-based critical communications company Tait Communications has commissioned a new radio system for Indonesian oil exploration operations on the coast of Borneo.

The Tait network and more than 600 Tait portable radios will be used by on-site engineers, production workers and supervisors at VICO Indonesia’s oil pipeline.

Terms of the deal will see the TaitNet MPT trunked network replace an existing Tait network which has been in place for eight years.

Brett Smythe, General Manager for Tait Asia-Pacific, says VICO made an early decision to continue to use Tait portable radios due to their efficiency and the popularity of the products among staff with the company successful in winning a competitive international tender process to provide the network system as well.

“A key requirement for the system provider was that the network could support Tait hardware," Smythe adds.

"The reliability of our networks and hardware was vital for VICO, which needed an operationally effective and easy to commission network that would help keep their workers safe.

“TaitNet MPT-IP has been specifically developed to allow for flexibility, scalability and modularity in readiness for changing business needs, making it a great solution for VICO as the company targets growth in its region."

Rizal Purwanto – ICT Manager at VICO Indonesia, says that while the original system provided by Tait was still going strong, investment in a more modern network was a vital step to prevent any risks further down the line.

“We have been really happy with the service provided by Tait with our existing network system, but technology does start to fail with age, so we want to prepare and mitigate this risk by getting a new system in place now," he adds.

Based on VICO’s requirements, Tait developed a full package that will be purchased by Tait partner PT. ALSSA Corporindo and leased to VICO - the system will go on air on 1 April 2015.

Tait supplies critical communications solutions to mining, oil and gas companies across the world, including Petrobras in Brazil, Anglo American’s Capcoal in Australia and the Cerrjón Coal Mine in Colombia.
