Kapsch CarrierCom and Rohill implemented project in Argentina

Together with partner Rohill Engineering B.V., Kapsch CarrierCom provided new TETRA base stations as well as spare parts for the TETRA network of the Argentinian National Gas & Oil company YPF. The TETRA Network Expansion started in November 2017, was finished in January 2018 and has a project value of more than EUR 500.000.

Vienna, February 28, 2018 – In total, Kapsch CarrierCom and partner Rohill Engineering B.V. – a technology leading provider of Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) hardware and software products – provided nine TETRA base stations for YPF, the National Gas & Oil company in Argentina. “This contract is a great success, especially for our colleagues in Argentina and our partner Rohill. It’s the first project for Kapsch CarrierCom in Argentina and a break-through into the gas and oil market”, explains Kari Kapsch, CEO of Kapsch CarrierCom.

The principal YPF designs and develops products, services and business solutions for clients in different market segments, such as retail, agro-industrial and industrial. The company has a TETRA network for voice and data communication in the south and west of Argentina, especially for oil and gas upstream and downstream activities. The new TETRA base stations and spare parts are needed for the expansion of this network in the provinces Neuquén and Mendoza.

"The long-term market expertise of Kapsch in implementing end-to-end solutions, coupled with the high quality of Rohill products, could convince one more time. We’re looking forward to further joint projects in Argentina and worldwide", says Harry Muter, COO at Rohill Engineering B.V.
