Western Siberian branch of Svyaztransneft (Tyumen) finished construction of two stages of a fiber-optic communication line (FOCL) at the sections Lazarevo – Tobolsk, Platina – Tobolsk, with the length of more than 900 kilometres.
The new section of the main communication line covers Sverdlovsk, Tyumen Regions and Khanty-Mansiisk autonomous area – Yugra. Construction was performed under complicated climatic conditions of the Western Siberia from October 2014 to March 2017. More than 70 percent of the FOCL is laid in marshland, so the main part of the work on its laying was conducted in winter. The constructors overcame more than 190 crossings across roads and railways, as well as multiple water barriers.
Besides, 87 control and monitoring stations (CMS) and 13 control centres were modernized and 30 communications shelters were installed as part of the construction and assembly works. After commissioning of this facility, planned for the end of this month, Uray and Tobolsk Oil Trunk Pipeline Directorates (OTPD) of Transneft Siberia will be provided with high-speed digital data communication channels for functioning of automation, telemetry systems, telephone communication and local computer network. Switch to the modern communication system significantly increases reliability of the equipment’s functioning, reduces expenses for operation and maintenance, secures long autonomous work.
The new section of the main fiber-optic communication line Platina – Tobolsk closed the optic ring of the multiservice network of Svyaztransneft. The modern communication line secured further modernization of the oil trunk pipelines management systems and significantly expanded the geography of access to communication services of the operators of Transneft Telecom and Svyaztransneft due to distribution to Sverdlovsk Region and Khanty-Mansiisk autonomous area – Yugra.
