Motorola Solutions to Manage Network and Field Communications for QCLNG Project

Motorola Solutions said that it has been awarded a contract to manage and support network operations for QGC’s liquefied natural gas project in southern Queensland.

The five-year AUD$10 million managed services contract will see Motorola Solutions manage and operate the communications network for the project’s main gas compression sites: the upstream control room in Chinchilla and, from January 1, 2015, the midstream LNG plant on Curtis Island near Gladstone.

The contract will help QGC realise safety, productivity and efficiency benefits by providing for service performance and network uptime guarantees, ensuring radio services for operations and emergency response management remain uninterrupted.

Motorola Solutions will manage all in-field wireless communications from its Network Operations Centre (NOC) in Melbourne, as well as provide support services on-site.

Motorola Solutions has been working with QGC on the deployment of the microwave and 33-site digital radio system since 2011. Late last year, Motorola Solutions announced the completion of the network. Valued at $32 million, the network is now one of the largest TETRA wireless networks in Australia.
