Italian utility engages Hytera TETRA

Thursday, 26 May, 2022 | Supplied by: Hytera Communications Co. Ltd

The Priolo Servizi Consortium from Sicilia, Italy, provides a wide range of utility services at the petrochemical centre in Syracuse. These include water supply and distribution, wastewater management, pipeline monitoring, various environmental services and fire protection and security services.

Mobilcom, partner of Advantec distribution, has designed and equipped Priolo Servizi with a secure Accessnet-T IP radio system with Hytera radios by Hytera Mobilfunk, based in Bad Münder, Germany (HMF). The TETRA communication solution helps to optimise staff workflows as well as increase safety and ensures stable and clear communication in case of emergency.

The challenge

The project included a digital TETRA radio system that provided extended radio coverage to remote areas. The TETRA solution is used in the entire refinery area and in the well area around the refinery, approximately within a radius of 10 kilometres.

In addition, the new radio network needed to be connected to the public address and general alarm system (PA/GA).

The tailor-made TETRA communications solution from Mobilcom ensures technical quality and know-how, robustness of the products and good project management. The TETRA solution with the DIB-R5 advanced and DIB-R5 compact TETRA base stations meets all the utility’s needs. First of all, the radio coverage has been significantly improved and ensures voice and data connectivity in the entire area.

The two base stations are configured in redundancy and offer secure communication channels to about 400 radio terminals.

Three Hytera DWS dispatchers serve as a control centre for the daily operations and management of the radios as well as for emergency management. In addition to voice communication, the TETRA radio system is also used to control pumps and valves within the supply infrastructure, among other things.

With connection included to the PA/GA system, via the Radiobox from Mobilcom, messages can now also be sent to all radios via the TETRA network.
