Teltronic Deploys Digital Radio Network for Mongolian Mining Railway
Thursday, June 16, 2022 | Comments

Teltronic deployed a TETRA network that will serve the new railway corridor linking the Tavantolgoi coal mine, one of the largest untapped coking and thermal coal deposits in the world, with the Gashuunsukhait border port, in southern Mongolia, on the border with China.

In this way, Teltronic installed a complete communications solution on TETRA digital technology based on its NEBULA infrastructure, which includes two control nodes, as well as the indoor and outdoor base stations necessary to cover the 250 kilometers of the track. The system will have to withstand the extreme temperature fluctuation of cold and hot, sandy, windy environmental conditions that occur in such a hostile environment as the Gobi of Mongolia.

“Due to the environmental and operating conditions, we needed a robust and reliable radio system that would guarantee communications along the entire line without a single point of failure,” said Bat-Amgalan Tumurbaatar, director of the telecommunication and singaling department of Bodi International, the railway and infrastructure company responsible for the project. “Teltronic's solution offered us the levels of availability and quality of service necessary to operate the line with total security.”

Teltronic also supplied on-board radios for each of the 16 locomotives that will serve the line, as well as portable, mobile and desktop terminals used by control, security and maintenance personnel. Finally, the system was completed with Teltronic's control center and call dispatching solution, CeCoCo, with two operator stations.

"Teltronic has a long history in the development of communication solutions for heavy haul mining railways, and the trust that Bodi International has placed in us only confirms the leading position that Teltronic has in the transport market, with comprehensive solutions that give us the ability to be a single supplier with extensive experience in the development of projects fully adapted to the needs of each client,” said Teltronic Transport Business Development Director Felipe Sanjuán.

The Tavantolgoi - Gashuunsukhait line will be operated by the state-owned Tavantolgoi Railway and is expected to be a major boost to the Mongolian economy. The railway will run through the most southern part of the country, along a 250 kilometer route that includes a total of six passing sidings and two train stations and will shorten travel time and transport costs, attracting road freight volumes to the railway. The line is expected to have a capacity of 30 million tons per year.
