Perimeter Security Systems for Gas & Water Pumping Stations
Gas pumping stations, water pumping stations and water treatment facilities fall into the high risk category of EKP – Economic Key Points (potential terrorist targets) – and only high calibre, government tested and approved security systems are now allowed to be installed in and around EKP sites in the UK.
With our systems having been tested and approved by the British Government for this type of application, our Electro-Fence™ and Flexiguard™ systems are in the British Government Catalogue of Security Equipment.
Gas Pumping Station Security
Installations of our perimeter security solutions at gas pumping stations include:
Transco gas pumping station (UK) – our high security Electro-Fence™ equipment is installed as part of an effective perimeter security system. Putting electrical equipment such as an electric fence on a gas operations site might at first not seem logical but with perimeter fences always at a safe distance from the actual gas, it’s no problem. This type of gas operations site is ideal for our high security electric fence system as the high voltage can be switched off but the low voltage circuit can still detect an intruder and can automatically switch on the high voltage. Transco has 275,000km of pipework dedicated to delivering gas supplies throughout the UK so security is a serious issue for them.
Hong Kong Town Gas – Electro-Fence™ equipment was supplied to replace another company’s previous installation which had proved ineffective. We were able to solve a lot of the site operator’s problems because of our superior electric fence insulators with integral water barriers and our electric fence energisers.
Water Pumping Stations & Reservoirs
Installations of our perimeter security systems for water utilities include:
Thames Water, Yorkshire Water, Northumbrian Water, Severn Trent Water, Scottish Water. Most of the sites where our security equipment has been installed for these companies are either service reservoirs or water pumping stations in the UK. Our Electro-Fence™ (the only purpose built security system of its type and not an agricultural system subsequently adapted to be a security system) has proven ideal for this type of application and on many occasions has been installed as a free standing electric fence option.
