- A leading Australian coal seam gas operator engaged PSA Engineering to deliver a solution addressing network integration problems between existing brownfield sites and several new greenfield facilities commissioned in geographically isolated areas.
- Telecommunications infrastructure construction delays and network integration problems with the brownfield facilities were at risk of causing project commissioning delays and increasing operational costs.
- PSA Engineering designed and commissioned a carrier-grade MPLS (multiprotocol label switching) process control network (PCN) spanning over 30 sites and 250km of regional facilities.
- The delivery schedule was accelerated, removing the project’s dependency on delayed facility construction.
- Costs were reduced by removing the requirement for duplicated telecommunications infrastructure previously required for the multi-vendor environment to be commissioned in parallel to the primary PCN.
- We delivered the project on time and within budget.
To engineer a solution that solved our client’s network integration problems, PSA Engineering liaised with the key stakeholders to collate the requirements for both the brownfield and greenfield facilities. Once we had compiled a detailed overview, we were able to design and commission a carrier grade MPLS process control network that delivered an integrated solution for all sites.
- PSA Engineering compiled the business and technical requirements from brownfield operations and greenfield project delivery stakeholders, including the automation contractors.
- PSA Engineering designed and commissioned a carrier-grade MPLS process control network spanning over 30 sites and 250km of regional facilities.
