The Santos GLNG site reached new heights last week with construction completed on the installation of a 50 metre high communications tower, Bechtel Gladstone said on Wednesday.
The construction of the permanent plant communications tower on the GLNG site will provide Santos GLNG with high-speed communication for the plant’s operational stage.
“The 50-metre red and white tower – one of the taller structures on site – was transported to site in segments resembling a giant Meccano set and constructed next to the Central Control Administration (CCA) building,” Bechtel Gladstone said.
“This important piece of infrastructure will ensure the plant has reliable communication to incoming LNG tankers and digital radio coverage throughout the site, as well as high-speed data and phone services,” the company added.
The project was completed by Alcatel-Lucent.
