Flawless Helicopter Lift

HKA’s Sydney team has been working for the Port Authority of NSW to mange the relocation a key Radar component of the Vessel Tracking System (VTS) for Sydney Harbour and Port Botany and its re-integration to the VTS – as well as installation of a new Radar facility in Circular Quay. The existing Radar’s location on the top of the AMP Center, at a height of more than 600 feet, required the use of a helicopter to lower the Radar antenna to street level and involved a CBD road closure. The entire operation was very much weather dependent, but proceeded flawlessly on Sunday November 12. HKA has been using its PMWeb installation to assist in managing the relocation. HKA installed PMWeb to its own equipment in the Verizon Data Center, Sydney, in January 2013, subsequently moving to the Equinix Data Center. HKA’s PMWeb facility now provides access to PMWeb for the HKA organisation globally.
