Guadeloupe – 4 G Mako project

Mako project took place in Guadeloupe Island, a French overseas region in the southern Caribbean Sea.

On this project Prime Telecom did the following:

  • Equipment delivery to site
  • Installation, commissioning and testing
  • Site report and site folder
  • Decommissioning, dismantle and delivery to warehouse

Between November 2017 and April 2018 we’ve deployed several teams, from Riggers, drivers and up to project managers, in total around 70 persons.

Our partner in Guadeloupe was ZTE Corporation. During this six months our colleagues have faced several special situations, all new to us. One of the main challenges was to overcome the cultural differences between natives, partners from China and our Romanian teams.

The weather was another challenge, as we confronted ourselves with different climate – where the weather changes are happening very fast, in short periods of time. We’ve found out that what you planned in the office was not necessary adapted to the reality in the field.

So, in the Gant diagram there was no special section for unique situations like: reaching a site located in the middle of the forest with no visible access path, or dealing with cultural differences – interdiction even to be close to sites on the second day of Easter, or with legal challenges – out Drive Test team was asked during a night shift to justify what was their scope in the city etc.

The Drive Test team carries out optimization, conducting telephone and data tests when the site is integrated after the equipment has been changed.

But based onto the professionalism of the team, along with excellent coordination of our Project Manager, Mr. Lucian Voicu, in cooperation with our local partners we managed to finalize the project in very good conditions for our final client, Digicel.

Now that we have another proven international experience we are ready for new challenges!
