ICT services vendor, Dimension Data, has been awarded a contract to design the network and telephony systems for the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project in Western Australia.

“We are currently starting phase one, spanning two years, which includes the planning, design and defining the scope of building Chevron’s network and telephony infrastructure for the both the offshore platform as well as the processing plant located at Ashburton North.

“This phase includes establishing a lab environment for validating the detailed design features of the network”, Cunico said.
