RWE Power Selects Sepura for 10-Year Managed Services Contract
Tuesday, April 11, 2017 | Comments

RWE Power, a Germany energy production and generation company, signed a 10-year managed services contract for its existing Sepura TETRA network in Cologne, Germany, marking another decade of collaboration for the two companies.

The contract will see round-the-clock TETRA network support for the company’s site at Rhenish lignite mining area, the largest lignite coalfield in Europe. The agreement will include the delivery, installation and commissioning of a system upgrade comprising a central node, 24 base stations, a nonredundant emergency base station and in-house repeaters. The updated system will be fully IP based.

The original system, installed in 2006, uses more than 3,000 Sepura radios; users will experience no downtime throughout the upgrade process.

“We have a long history with RWE Power,” said Hooman Safaie, Sepura's regional director for DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland). “With a lignite coal production of more than 90 million tons and a power generation of around 70 billion kilowatt hours per year at the Rhenish lignite mining area alone, the company is a giant in its field. It is gratifying that they have placed their trust in us once again.”
