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.

The contract is for the Detailed Design and Design Assurance of the Permanent Network and Telephony Systems within the Wheatstone Project.

Chevron Australia is an integrated energy company and the Wheatstone Project is one of Australia’s largest resource projects.

Dimension Data claimed, in a statement, that the project will provide significant economic benefits such as employment, government revenue and local business opportunities.

“This contract is one of Australia’s largest professional services contracts and will see the majority of the manufacturing work completed in Australia. Under the agreement, we also expect to create additional positions to add to our Perth operations,” Cunico said.

Dimension Data will also provide design assurance services for Chevron’s subcontractors for any work they perform that interfaces to the Chevron network.

“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.
