Polish energy distributor ENERGA-OPERATOR is to upgrade its critical radio communications to a digital system using Motorola Solutions’ Dimetra IP Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) solution. The contract is Motorola’s largest win to date with a utility company in Poland.
ENERGA-OPERATOR is the biggest power distribution company in Northern Poland, with more than 2.9 million private and business customers. Under the agreement Motorola will deliver and implement a TETRA radio system including Dimetra IP TETRA switches, base stations, mobile and portable radios and radio modems.
Motorola will also integrate third-party solutions including a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system from Elkomtech and Mikronika to control power distribution equipment at remote sites. Motorola Solutions will also provide network integration services, dispatch console solutions plus post-sale service and maintenance.
“By choosing our Dimetra IP TETRA system, ENERGA-OPERATOR SA has selected a truly sustainable communications solution that can be upgraded and expanded to support Smart Metering, Smart Grid applications and LTE evolution when needed,” said Axel Rettig, MSSI vice president of Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia, Motorola Solutions.
