Leading security systems integrator ADT Security has been awarded a significant tender by a major State Government critical infrastructure owner to supply high end electronic security systems.
Reputed to be one of the largest successful government security tenders in Australia, the contract tasks ADT Security with the design, engineering, installation and maintenance of an advanced electronic perimeter protection solution, which will integrate systems such as surveillance, intrusion detection, lighting and public address. The project will enable the owner to monitor site security at more than 25 sites.
The security of these critical infrastructure sites is imperative as more than two million Government, corporate, small business and residential customers rely on these sites 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year. The 25+ sites are spread across vast regions of the State in high density suburban areas and very remote locations.
As part of the contract, ADT Security will equip the owner with the ability to centrally control and remotely monitor the security systems at each site, with the custom-designed solution helping address security threats such as unauthorised entry, theft and vandalism. Given the remote locations of many of the sites and the extreme weather conditions presented by the State’s climate, such as high temperatures, damaging winds and flooding, long-term durability is a specific requirement of the systems being deployed. All work is required to adhere to strict safety and environmental policies.
Jordon Peters, general manager at ADT Security said the company won the contract after an extensive tender process; the project is testament to their team’s expertise, experience and demonstrated commitment to EH&S.
ADT Security has teamed with a number of very experienced providers, including the Colemans Group, Australian Security Fencing, Inner Range, CSD, Open Platform Systems, Pacific 2 Communications, Genetec, Raytec and HIK Vision to deliver the solution. Work is currently underway, with completion scheduled for September 2016.
