Alcatel-Lucent (News - Alert) has joined forces with JGC Corporation to enhance efficiency and workforce safety at a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Indonesia.
As part of the pact, Alcatel-Lucent will provide advanced communications technology for a new LNG plant being constructed in Indonesia for PT Donggi-Senoro LNG (DSLNG).
Officials with Alcatel-Lucent said the company’s provisioning of a fully integrated communications and security system will enhance the safety and security of workers at the plant, while improving operational efficiency through the application of state-of-the-art data networks.
Company officials said Alcatel-Lucent will provide a complete communications system integrating its enterprise-optimised local area network (LAN) and IP-PABX phone systems.
Besides this, Alcatel-Lucent also will integrate a variety of equipment from third-party suppliers, including TETRA-based UHF radio with tower/shelter, VHF radio systems, CCTV monitoring, public alarm/general alarm (PA/GA) system, video conference system, access and gate control system, ship-to-shore communication system and a weather monitoring system.
Alcatel-Lucent will also reportedly provide its services capabilities including system design, project management and supervision of installation and commissioning, documentation, procurement, integrated testing and logistics.
Donggi-Senoro is the fourth LNG complex in Indonesia and production will begin in the fourth quarter 2014. The plant will receive feed gas from the gas fields of Senoro-Toili and Matindok in the region and deliver LNG to Japanese Power companies Chubu Electric and Kyushu Electric, as well as Korea Gas Corporation.
“We are pleased to be working with Alcatel-Lucent again as our reliable telecommunication systems supplier on this project. Alcatel-Lucent has excellent expertise and industry-leading project management skills for the integration of telecommunication systems. We expect this project to confirm a long-lasting working relationship,” Tokutaro Nomura, executive officer and senior manager of procurement department, international project division of JGC Corporation, said in a statement.
Rajeev Singh-Molares, president of Alcatel-Lucent Asia-Pacific, said that Alcatel-Lucent is building a world-class communications system for Donggi-Senoro.
The system, according to Molares, will make operations more efficient and deliver the vital security an energy facility needs.
