Under the terms of the deal, Integ will supply video-on-demand, television, video gaming system, Internet, radio and an outdoor movie theatre delivered on an IP network for the construction village at the Gorgon Project.
The rollout will cover 3000 rooms and common areas that will accommodate workers during the building of the Liquefied Natural Gas production facility at Barrow Island in WA.
The deal is worth in excess of $3 million, Integ CEO, Ian Poole said.
In conjunction with Kentz, which is the nominated telecommunications and electronics contractor to Chevron Australia, Integ will design, test, manage and deploy the services for the network. It will also provide applications and content. Integ was nominated to partner Kentz after a successful proof of concept demonstration.
Poole said it was still working on some of the support aspects of the deal and the project isn’t expected to go live for about 12 months.
“It combines our ability to build and support networks with supplying content. It’s difficult to provide the content if you don’t understand or build the network, so it’s important to do both,” he said.
Poole indicated the mining sector was a high-growth area for the company and it expects it will contribute about 25 per cent to its revenue within the next three years.
“It’s an opportunity for us to build networks to enable people in remote mining areas to communicate with their family and friends,” Poole said. “We’re focused on mining, but this is our first major foray into liquefied gas. It’s the largest natural liquefied gas project in Australia.”
