Senstar Delivers $3.4 million order for Latin America oil facilities
Senstar announced the sale of more than US$3.4 million of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) protecting oil facilities in Latin America. The project includes the protection of 125 oil wells and two 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,” says Manuel Escobar, director general of Senstar Andina, one of Karp, Ont.-based Senstar’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 centers uses IntelliFIBER – Senstar’s fence mounted sensor as the trigger for a similar security response as described above.
Senstar has announced four other projects in 2012 in the region to secure prisons.
