PT Pertamina Hulu Energi Offshore North West Java manages and develops oil flow stations. It explores and produces oil and gas.

The project goal of Pertamina ONWJ (On Shore North West Java) to provide a radio link between Onshore Marunda - Offshore Papa - Offshore Zulu.

Competitors solutions

Onshore Marunda - Offshore Papa using microwave solution 7GHz

Offshore Papa - Offshore Zulu using microwave solution 7GHz

This Options make it possible to reach a link between two radios. Main drawback: the necessity of additional repeaters on the island. Although the implementation of extra equipment provides high capacity, it leads to high CAPEX and OPEX. This option wasn't accepted.

Offshore Papa using Satellite

Offshore Zulu using Satellite

The satellite-link communication renders possible the link and needed data transmission. The Disadvantages of this option are very low capacity and very high CAPEX and high OPEX. This option wasn't accepted.

Youncta's solution

For Onshore Marunda - Offshore Papa the best solution is - Y-HAUL.

The PtP wireless communication system make it possible to reach a link for a distance of 40 km (Onshore Marunda - Offshore Papa) and 86 km (Offshore Papa - Offshore Zulu). This equipment provides data transmission with a capacity of 1~4 Mbps and lowest OPEX&CAPEX.

Y-Haul guarantee:

  • Frequency range: 300-700 MHz;
  • QPSK to 64QAM for longer hops and/or increased capacity;
  • Different channel bandwidth: 1.75-12 MHz;
  • Fast Ethernet for Y-Haul TDD and Fast Ethernet plus E1 for Y-Haul FDD Interfaces available.

Y-Haul becomes a very good option to improve the services portfolio for:

  • Carrier class corporate customers;
  • Public services for Government remote zones;
  • NLOS links with high capacity;
  • And more.

.... avoid high Capex:

  • Using repeaters with microwave regular solution;
  • Using low capacity with UHF low frequencies;
  • Using low capacity with expensive satellite services;
  • And more.

.... avoid high Opex:

  • Using many units to control;
  • Using complex low frequencies to deploy, operate and maintain spare;
  • Using services when you don't have the full control.
