Senstar Andina has announced the sale of over $3.4 million USD of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) protecting oil facilities in Latin America. The project includes the protection of 125 oil wells and 2 operational centres.
“Senstar Andina has worked very closely with the chosen system integrator and end-user to provide a fully customized security solution for this oil and gas security project,” said Manuel Escobar, Director General of Senstar Andina, one of Senstar Corporation’s sales subsidiaries.
The security concept being deployed at the oil well locations uses Senstar’s OmniTrax buried cable sensor to send alarms to a centralized command centre, where first responders will evaluate the alarm with integrated Infinova CCTV systems and Lenel head-end. While confirmation of the intrusion attempt is taking place, locally at the oil well a strobe light and siren will turn on. Once the intrusion has been confirmed, first responders will be deployed to the site, and the command and control centre will be able to announce the intrusion over a speaker system at the oil well.
The security concept at the operational centres uses IntelliFIBER – Senstar's fence mounted sensor as the trigger for a similar security response as described above.
“The security solution being provided puts into action Senstar’s commitment to integration, and demonstrates that with the largest product range of PIDS products and technologies, Senstar is able to provide solutions that fit any requirements” said Terry Manuel Escobar, Director General of Senstar Andina. “This order shows our strength as a PIDS product supplier to the global market.”
With this order of perimeter intrusion detection sensors, Senstar continues to demonstrate growth in the Latin American market, having announced four projects so far in 2012 to secure prisons in the region.
