Motorola Solutions wins network contract for gas project

MOTOROLA Solutions has won a $10 million contract to manage and support network operations for QGC's liquefied natural gas project.

The five-year managed services contract will see the company manage and operate the communications network for the project's main gas compression sites from Chinchilla to Brisbane and from next year, the LNG plant on Curtis Island.

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 Australia and New Zealand managing director Steven Crutchfield said he couldn't be prouder of the partnership.

"Our extended partnership with the organisation as a part of this managed services contract will further help them increase efficiency and productivity by providing certainty of operational performance, and most importantly help them achieve their No.1 priority of enabling a safer working environment for their employees," he said.

A spokesman from QGC said reliable communications were vital in a business with activities spanning 4,500 square kilometres from western Queensland to Gladstone and to Brisbane.
