Speedcast, a leading communications and IT services provider, today announced that the company has been selected by Oliveira Energia for a multi-year contract to deliver connectivity service to 42 power plants in the countryside of Amazonas State. Brazilian power electric generator Oliveira Energia serves more than two million customers in the Amazon basin.

The service is being delivered by Speedcast’s Brazilian entity, SC Caprock. The agreement includes the now completed installation and launch of a C-band VSAT (very small aperture terminal) network, which includes delivery of a supervisory control system, CCTV, VOIP and internet access. Additionally, the company’s Brazilian entity will deliver equipment leasing, field maintenance and 24x7 network monitoring and support via its Customer Support Center. The hub of the VSAT network was also installed at Oliveira Energia’s headquarters in Manaus, which is operated remotely from the company’s Brazilian teleport network operations center.

“With the SC Caprock link, we have stability in the connection and very high availability, when compared to other technologies,” said Heitor Cândido, Technical Director at Oliveira Energia. “We started our project with an internet link, in Ku-band, but we soon identified that it would not serve for our supervision and control of the plants. We searched for other solutions, and SC Caprock provided the definitive one.”

“Our team in Brazil is best positioned to deliver on the unique connectivity needs of customers in the region, ensuring reliability for critical operations,” said James Trevelyan, Senior Vice President of Enterprise and Emerging Markets at Speedcast. “We are pleased to serve as Oliveira Energia’s communications partner, delivering a custom technology solution that will maximize their operational efficiencies.”
