DAMM Chosen to Replace Aurizon’s Aging Analog Rail System

DAMM has successfully been chosen to replace Aurizon’s aging analog rail system with a 70+ site DAMM TetraFlex® network.

Operating in the Central Queensland Coal Network, Aurizon manages one of the world’s largest and most complex supply chains, made up of 2,670 kilometers of heavy haul rail infrastructure. This infrastructure is connected to domestic coal users, and to the export terminals at Abbot Point, Dalrymple Bay, Hay Point and the Port of Gladstone.

DAMM´s Communication Solution

To ensure a mission critical voice and data communication network in this remote and harsh environment, DAMM’s communication solution included the ruggedised and compact IP65 encapsulated BS421 outdoor base station in full redundant configuration. Key to the central Queensland project are the decentralised nature of DAMM TetraFlex® architecture, the ease of integration and installation, low operational cost and availability of local Queensland-based support from DAMM.

Local DAMM Australia Partner Radlink Communications — a leader in wireless technology integration with vast experience in the deployment of TetraFlex® networks — has relished the opportunity to deploy a TETRA network of this scale. Stage 1 of the project has seen the successful completion of Factory and Site Acceptance Testing, and Radlink is well ahead in the rollout of the remaining stages due to the space-saving BS421 base station and fast setup time.

Carsten Laursen, the Regional Director of DAMM, has stated:

“DAMM is a trusted solution provider for the mining, oil and gas industries in Australia. With the local experience and expertise of our system Partner Radlink, we strive to continue our success in Australia by providing secure, reliable critical voice and data communication solutions for both governmental and none governmental entities in need of a resilient solution in a time of increasing security threats.”
