Sepura radios keep workers safe in Norway mountains
The Sira-Kvina Power Company in Norway has chosen Sepura STP9000 hand-portable radios for use on its new TETRA communications system.
Sira-Kvina produces 6,300 Gigawatt hours (GWh) of renewable energy each year. It operates seven hydro-electric power plants that use watercourses in the mountains in the south-west of Norway. Its employees work in a range of demanding environments, from the high mountain tops where the watercourses start, to the tunnels located hundreds of metres deep inside the mountains that house the hydro-electric installations.
By choosing Sepura's STP9000 hand-held radios, the company provided its employees with high-performance, rugged radios that are able to operate in the most physically challenging environments. In addition, the radios large colour display makes it ideal for viewing images and maps as well as text, and its front-facing loudspeaker provides clear audio in the most extreme climatic conditions.
"Sepura is proud to provide Sira-Kvina with TETRA hand-portables for worker communication and safety that meet the requirements for robust and reliable communications," said Lars-Magnus Gustafsson, International Business Development Manager at Sepura.
"With its tough design and proven performance, the STP9000 is more than capable of maintaining communications in Sira-Kvina's demanding operational conditions."
