Project description

As part of the first phase of the development of the Kashagan oil field, called Experimental Program, a permanent camp Samal was constructed in Karabatan. AVENCOM subcontracted the construction of the following objects in Samal:

  1. 70 m telecommunication tower erection for Page Europa SpA;
  2. Installation of Electrical, fiber optic, instrumental cabling system in camp Samal for Almaty Kurylys;
  3. Turn key installation of Entertainment System for Page Europa SpA.

The tower was designed to resist extreme wind gusts of up to 48 m/s and harsh weather conditions in the area. It is equipped with six antenna rest/work platforms and an Instrument and Telecommunication Shelter. The four sided lattice self-supporting construction was manufactured at EMTAMITAS Plant (Ankara, Turkey) and delivered to the construction site where it was assembled and erected on site by a team of six qualified erectors with a 25 m crane and a tractor for lifting.

The Camp Entertainment System was composed of 4 dish antennas,30 IRD’s and 34 UHF modulators (30 for IRD’s, the other four for signals coming from Customer provided equipment);a network distribution system composed of Fiber Optic TXs and RXs, combiners and amplifiers distributed the signal in various buildings in the Camp.

All indoor equipment was installed in 6 of 42’ rack unit cabinets 800X800 mm. The FAT was organized in AVENCOM’s staging facilities. After the test the assembled cabinets were delivered to the destination.
