Rolling Meadows, IL, June 20, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Lukoil, one of the largest oil producers in the world has successfully implemented the Motorola MotoTRBO Capacity Plus System to improve communication between various production units, right from extraction to the finalization of the finished product.
American International Radio (AIR), a leading communication solutions provider and the largest distributor for Motorola Solutions EMEA region together with its strong local partner Komtek 2006 have successfully implemented the MotoTRBO Capacity Plus system for Lukoil, the Russian based petrochemical giant.
Komtek 2006 had won the tender in 2010 for the project which involved creating a communication backbone between various production units at Lukoil Neftochim Burgas, an oil terminal in Bulgaria. The biggest challenge was the safety of the staff and equipment considering the hazardous environment in which the project had to be implemented.
The 6 channel capacity built system is capable of supporting 14 groups with 10 to 15 subscribers and has a voice recording system. Two of the engineers involved had attended a MOTOTRBO Technical training course organized by Motorola Solutions and AIR in Berlin in 2012.

The implementation of the project involved careful planning by the engineering team who worked alongside the team from Lukoil. The first step involved the verification of radio coverage and identifying a place to build the new system. Once this was done, the team worked on the design, supply and installation of the components of the system. Specifications of the working groups, subscriber and programming were decided in the next stage. The final step involved commissioning and testing.
According to Mr. Ivan Dimitrov, head of Telecommunications department of Lukoil-Neftochim Lukoil’s partnership with Komtek 2006 and AIR has been one that has evolved from an external vendor to a trusted partner. “We chose to work with Komtek 2006 and AIR for their excellent technical support. Everything was done as promised and on time,” he added.
