Australia’s largest Oil and Gas Industry Project to roll-out TetraFlex®

The Gorgon project is one of the world’s largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource natural gas project in Australia’s history.


Thiess Kentz has been awarded a telecommunications package by Chevron Australia that includes the deployment of the largest private TETRA network in Australia to date.

The contract includes the design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of all telecommunications on Barrow Island including links to the mainland and to the city of Perth.

The state-of-the-art telecommunications installation will establish a converged voice and data network across a site-wide IP backbone. An overlaying TETRA system will provide secure, mission critical wireless voice and data communications for the entire project. DAMM TetraFlex® technology has been awarded as the preferred solution.

The TetraFlex® system will integrate to on-site AVL/APL, Dispatch Consoles, IP Telephony and Alarm Monitoring systems. All TETRA equipment is to be installed, commissioned and maintained by our valued Australian TetraFlex® Partner ComGroup Australia.
