Koning & Hartman bv received the order from Westerschelde Maintenance vof, and selected SEE Telecom sprl for supply of a turnkey system to renew the radio coverage of the Westerscheldetunnel, a 6.6-kilometre (4.1 mi) tunnel in the Netherlands that carries highway N62 under the Western Schelde estuary between Ellewoutsdijk and Terneuzen. It is the longest tunnel for highway traffic in The Netherlands.
SEE Telecom provided radio engineering, manufacturing, setting, factory acceptance test and the commissioning and Koning & Hartman was in charge of integration, installation and will ensure the maintenance.
Thanks to SEE Telecom’s system and Koning & Hartman’s field experience, the tunnel is totally safe with C2000 (TETRA national dutch public safety network), DMR UHF for operation services and FM-DAB break-in for the emergency messages insertion in case of incident.
