Dutch Steel Plant Deploys TETRA Network from Sepura
Wednesday, February 22, 2017 | Comments

Tata Steel selected Sepura, in conjunction with Dutch distributor Abiom, to provide a complete TETRA communications network for its flagship site in the Netherlands. The IJmuiden steel plant is Tata Steel’s largest, spanning 7.5msquare kilometers and producing up to 7 million metric tons per year.

The TETRA network consists of five base stations providing site-wide coverage, fail-safe operation and redundancy, control room solutions and about 900 portable and mobile radios, including intrinsically safe portables. The network is already fully operational and uses specialist solutions for communications among vehicles, locomotives, cranes and emergency rooms.

“We are extremely pleased that Tata Steel has chosen Sepura,” said Gary Maughan, Sepura’s regional director for the United Kingdom and North/Central Europe. “This prestigious win builds on our strong working relationship with Abiom, proven over many previous projects, and is a robust endorsement of our combined expertise in the complex communications requirements of the industrial sector.”
