BelFone Communications has recently provided a wireless communication solution to the Kafue Gorge hydroelectric power station in Zambia.

The system covers the entire hydropower station hub, including the rockfill dam, a spillway on the north bank and an underground powerhouse on the south bank, as well as upstream diversion tunnels, vertical pressure pipes and downstream tailwater.

BelFone offered its wide-area communication coverage and intelligent personnel management system based on the SDC topology. In addition to bridging communication gaps in deep tunnels, the system enables staff at all levels to communicate and collaborate when scattered across the workplaces with features such as real-time positioning & monitoring, track playback, broadcast call, multi-group call, notification, command and dispatch, warning management, and data inspection, the company said.
