In the Pilbara region of Western Australia, Roy Hill is leading the development of integrated iron ore mining, rail and port operations. Within this project, Ansaldo, another Finmeccanica company, is responsible for the integrated communication-based signaling solution for the safe and efficient management of the automated heavy-haul train operations between port and mine.
The TETRA system offers services including communications between the trains and the operations and control center, the train drivers and all other railway personnel involved in daily operational and maintenance activities. The system includes network infrastructure, radio terminals and value-added applications.
It provides essential core network services for integrated voice and data communications, as well as a comprehensive range of supplementary and enhanced services. The system consists of a duplicated core network implementing "disaster recovery" architecture, high-performance base stations that provide improved radio coverage and Wireless Network Node (WiNN) Mobile version 2 platform as trains’ mobile radio and controller.
The entire system is based on a switchless and scalable architecture with centralized call control capability. It fully addresses the requirements of the Roy Hill project thanks to the flexible and modular design, high level of resilience, advanced dispatching functions for effective fleet management and the comprehensive interfacing capabilities.
