ADT Awarded Aussie Critical Infrastructure Contract
ADT Security has won one of Australia’s largest critical infrastructure security tenders in a landmark new deal
SECURITY systems integrator, ADT Security, has signed a landmark contract with a major state government critical infrastructure owner. The significant contract, reputed to be one of the largest successful government security tenders in Australia, will see ADT Security provide high end electronic security systems which 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 2 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. More than 25 sites are spread across vast regions of the state in high density suburban areas and very remote locations.
ADT Security has been tasked 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. Providing the owner with the ability to centrally control and remotely monitor the security systems at each site, the custom-designed solution will help 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 – including the maintenance of site biodiversity – which are central to the core values of the operation.
“After an extensive tender process, ADT Security is proud and excited to announce details of this exciting project,” said Jordon Peters, general manager at ADT Security.
“This is an incredibly complex project requiring the most advanced security system technologies and high end integration capabilities. It is testament to our team’s expertise, experience and its demonstrated commitment to EH&S that we have secured this landmark new contract.”
ADT Security has teamed with a number of experienced providers, including the Colemans Group, Australian Security Fencing, Inner Range, CSD, Open Platform Systems, Pacific Communications, Genetec, Raytec and Hikvision to deliver the solution. Work is currently underway, with completion scheduled for September 2016.
