PORT of Townsville Limited has invited tender submissions for works to upgrade its existing PTZ surveillance cameras. 

POTL said it had reviewed options and under this contract requests supply and install of new high definition cameras to replace the existing cameras in the CCTV network.

The current system incorporates multiple PTZ cameras installed by LRI, which allow port staff to manage vessels entering and exiting the Port of Townsville thanks to their powerful zoom lenses.

As well as being installed at multiple locations around the site, a camera is also installed on top of Cement Australia's silo. One of the tallest structures in the area, it provides a clear view of the approaches and the harbour.

It is the third largest seaport in Queensland after Port of Brisbane and the Central Queensland Port in Gladstone.
