TopTroniX was requested to investigate the existing communications infrastructure at Fuel Farm 3, then provide a cost effective proposal to upgrade the infrastructure in preparation for new equipment into the future. At the same time, it was key to minimise the impact on the farm’s operation.
The result? Proposal won, project completed, happy customer, smiles all round! Check our projects section to read further information.
With the original controls contractor unable to deliver the system on time to suit the project’s constraints, TopTroniX was brought in towards the end of the Fuel Farm 7 project to provide a fee proposal to:
- develop the RTU code and SCADA for monitoring and controlling of a new Fuel Farm at RAAF Base Darwin;
- design the communications infrastructure to be used for the new Fuel Farm;
- integrate the new Fuel Farm with the existing Fuel Farm at RAAF Base Darwin, allowing for fuel transfers; AND
- complete the works in an exceptionally tight time-frame.
The farm itself was tasked with providing F34 + FSII fuel on demand, via a pressurised ring-main, to RAAF aircraft.
The outcome of the proposal? Well, as you’ll see in the Projects listing, we won the project and kicked some great goals!
