The Queensland Government (27th February) paid tribute to Ergon Energy's Toowoomba staff for their outstanding work during recent extreme weather events, made possible by Airwave Solutions Australia P25 Digital Mobile Radio network, which continued to function when others failed during the worst of the recent floods.
Working together with Ergon Energy, Airwave Solutions Australia developed the P25 digital voice and narrowband data communications system, the first of its kind in to be implemented in Queensland.
The Toowoomba/ Darling Downs network covers and area of 100,000 square kilometers connecting 350 users via mobile radio handsets and GPS technology. This is the first stage of a much larger planned network to be rolled out across Queensland.

Throughout the duration of the devastating storms the system did not fail once, even when when the commercial carrier network failed – enabling Ergon staff to communicate with the Control Centre in Rockhampton when all the other systems failed. This in turn made it possible for Ergon staff to target areas of extreme need and get the electricity switched back on where it was needed most.

An Ergon spokesperson said "The network technology enabled us to have electricity safely restored hours sooner for several thousand customers as part of a coordinated rapid response effort."
Robert Lyell & Associates are proud to have been part of the team to design and implement this network.
