The 3 solutions for the oil & gas sector
AN IMPORTANT CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE
On the list of sensitive sites that need particular attention to anti-intrusion security measures, Oil & Gas plants are among the most strategic and critical settlements.
In the event of an unwanted intrusion, the most serious risks are:
- dangerous explosions
- in case of sabotage, the impact on energy production, critical in world's economy
1. SOLUTIONS FOR THE EXTERNAL PERIMETER
Such sites are generally protected with a very strong double fence, about 2.50m / 3m high, with a sturdy concertina on top.
The external fence is usually equipped with an electronic detection system. This must ensure the highest detection of the intrusion attempt, and at the same time not being influenced by the activity that can take place outside the site.
Thanks to its MEMS sensors, the SIOUX PRO2 fence-mounted system is not only highly sensitive to detection, but also offers precise localization of the intrusion point. It allows you to protect long perimeters with limited infrastructure and cabling work, and to create alarm-zones with great flexibility to adapt to the numerous cameras that monitor the perimeter
In case of cable-cut event it offers the redundancy functionality against loss of signal communication, which is an essential requirement to these sites. Furthermore, its architecture with copper cables in plug&play kits allows the system to be repaired in a few minutes without the need for specific technical skills.
Alternatively, when the more traditional fiber optic technology is specifically required, APACHE FIBER fence solution can be used, in a single or double loop configuration
2. SOLUTIONS APPLICABLE INSIDE THE PERIMETER
In the internal corridor created by the 2 fences it is suggested to install ERMO 482X PRO 3.0 bi-static barriers. The volumetric microwave signal fills the corridor, and any unauthorized presence is immediately intercepted.
Fuzzy Logic analysis grants a very high POD and at the same time the lowest possible FAR (1/unit /year).
IP & PoE compatible, these systems can be easily integrated in the field via the CCTV IP network. Remote setup and trouble-shooting allow you to easily manage big sites with a large amount of barriers.
Integration with CCTV is very important for optimal surveillance of sites that often extend over a wide range.
3. LET'S NOT FORGET THE GATES!
Finally, the gates are crucial too. Being areas where space is often restricted, those can be effectively protected with MICRO-RAY columns that emit microwave rays and are not subject to the harshest environmental conditions. IP&PoE with maximum security level, top detection performance is granted.
