Utilities complexes such as power stations, wind farms, hydro-electric stations, oil refineries and oil rigs must have two-way systems that provide instant communication that covers the entire site.
Most of these types of installation have structures that would normally impede a simple two-way system. However, Scotia Radio can design a system incorporating digital and analogue and digital trunked radio systems which use distributed antennae to give clear, site-wide coverage with no black spots.
There is also contingency for power failure with back-up batteries and automated channel changeover modules which keep the system operational.
As the control room is the hub of any large installation, its communication system must be capable of enabling control room staff to communicate quickly and efficiently with management and teams of workers. We can provide a two-way radio system that provides one-to-one calling, group calling and text messaging utilising digital or trunked radio systems keeping the control room operating at optimum efficiency.
Site workers are kept safe by two-way radio features such as lone worker and man down alarms, caller ID and GPS tracking, and there are a variety of automated process and alarms that can connect immediately with the appropriate emergency service giving all staff peace of mind.
In power generating complexes such as power stations, radio communications can be severely hampered by high volumes and background noise. We can provide two-way radios specifically designed for these environments which include protective, noise-cancelling headsets and hands free operation which are unobtrusive and easy to use including confined areas and for staff wearing cumbersome clothing.
