About The Customer
North West Redwater (NWR) is a large oil and gas refinery based in Red Water Alberta, with more than 2,000 employees.
The Challenge
North West Redwater (NWR) intended to build, manage and operate a new bitumen refinery. The new refinery was being built across six square kilometers and would include over 100 contracting companies participating in the construction phase of the project. NWR wanted to provide connectivity to the 100 contracting companies over a dispersed remote area in order to simplify the contractor onboarding process, decrease operating costs, and control the project schedule.
The Solution
By using the Redline RDL-3000 and the Redline RDL-3000 eLTEMT subscriber with Cisco 1552 Outdoor AP’s in strategic locations around the site, the NWR Partnership is able to provide connectivity to each contracting company regardless of where they are situated on the site.
Operational Impact

    A centralized communication platform that provides safety, security and project continuity was enabled to provide connectivity to each contracting company.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Labor Safety]
    Alerts for dangerous weather and other problems are sent to all devices in the field during emergencies, improving worker safety and minimizing distruption to operations.
Quantitative Benefit
  • The Cisco and Redline network solutions eliminated lost connectivity cost upwards of $50,000 per day.
