AFS 350 50' Tilt-Up Pole Northwest Tower
ARE Telecom was contracted by Northwest Towers to install multiple poles in an open-pit mine near Ontario, Canada.
Northwest Towers was in need to install several poles across Cote Mine. One of the key challenges faced by Cote Mine was establishing a robust and reliable communication network across their expansive mining site. They were in need of a solution that could provide stable support for their communication equipment, withstand harsh weather conditions, allow for easy installation and maintenance, and a system that allows for relocating as mining locations change.
Thanks to ARE Telecom’s expertise and innovative solutions, Northwest Tower deployed 7 AFS 350 systems to provide stable and reliable communication throughout the mine. This has improved safety, coordination, and productivity resulting in more efficient mining operations.
