Poupouatua Repeater Station

Poupouatua is a remote location in the rocky environs of the Ruahine Ranges. Some 740-metres above sea level, the site experiences extreme wind and alpine conditions. Despite its challenges, Poupouatua was also determined by FMS to be the ideal location to fill a gap in signal coverage in our client's network.

The coverage gap was the starting point of this greenfield project. The brief to FMS was to deliver the complete solution:

  • Finding the appropriate site
  • Planning and design of the repeater station
  • Site excavation
  • Engineering of the communications tower
  • Building services and civil works for construction of the station
  • Battery and generator back up power systems
  • Installation and programming of the control systems
  • Commissioning of the station into the operating network.
  • Ongoing operation and maintenance.

Not only has the completed station delivered the desired network coverage, FMS's solution has also provided the basis for expansion to meet future demand.
