Gantry Cargo and Vehicle Inspection System For Saudi Port
American Science and Engineering and Al Zamil Group have announced that Saudi Arabia Customs debuted AS&E’s OmniView Gantry cargo and vehicle X-ray inspection system at King Abdul Aziz Seaport in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. The high-energy transmission X-ray system will inspect cargo entering the port for security threats and contraband. This is the first of several systems to be installed at port and land borders in Saudi Arabia. The system provides high penetration into inspected objects as it moves along rails over stationary vehicles and cargo.

“AS&E is delighted to join Dr Hamad Al Qasoumi, Deputy Director General of Saudi Customs, and senior staff of Al Zamil Group, at the inauguration of Saudi Customs’ new OmniView Gantry X-ray inspection system at King Abdul Aziz Seaport,” said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E's President and CEO. “The system is the first of several OmniView systems that will be integrated into Saudi Arabia Customs’ total security protocol to secure their ports and land borders. The high-performance, high-energy OmniView Gantry cargo inspection system offers Saudi Arabian security officials best-in-class X-ray imaging in a unique, efficient design to secure their borders.”

“Saudi Arabia Customs is strongly committed to using leading edge technologies to improve the quality and efficiency of the port logistics and security processes,” said Dr. Hamad Al Qasoumi, Deputy Director General of Saudi Customs. “The deployment of AS&E’s OmniView Gantry and other specialized companies’ systems in the port comes as a complement to Saudi Customs’ projects for installation of X-ray scanners which began in 2005. These installations will lead to faster, safer, and more effective control of the thousands of containers in transit every year through the land and sea borders in Saudi Arabia.”

“The Al Zamil Group is committed to provide and maintain the best security solutions for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Saudi Customs,” said Dr Abdul Rahman Al Zamil, Chairman of Al Zamil Group. “We are very pleased to partner with AS&E to supply their unique technology to Saudi Arabia Customs to safely and efficiently scan containerized cargo.”
