For incinerators, photovoltaic systems, wind farms, hydroelectric plants, co-generations plants, and/or other power generation systems uninterrupted operation is crucial: everything would stop without electricity.
Intrusion or vandalism could jeopardize the production of the above plants.
Design, planning, installation, putting into service and maintenance of the anti-intrusion and anti-theft alarm systems in compliance with the relevant CEI 79-3 and CEI EN 50131-1 Standards are crucial to create a safety system.
Before designing a system, possible threats and risks are analyzed. The costs of possible thefts and damage as well as the location of the real estate, the presence of controlling workforces and the history of previous thefts or threats are taken into consideration.
For industrial sites we usually offer protection including the monitoring of access points, surfaces and volumes with an external perimeter protection of the industrial site, including fences and areas not built on. We also take the topography and the use of nearby areas into account.
During the design phase we evaluate the possibility of protecting special areas inside the perimeter containing assets which may be of particular importance for the Company.
A second, more internal barrier protects internal buildings and rooms. For rooms requiring a higher degree of safety, such as DPCs, servers and safes, ad-hoc multi-technology systems with smoke dischargers preventing thieves from completing their theft and from damaging the building are used.
Pursuant to the CEI EN 62676 Standard, before designing an industrial video surveillance system we carry out an analysis of the specific requirements of the industrial site and identify which areas require not only visual monitoring limited to the storage of images, but also active filming and detecting of incidents by means of the following:
Within this context, video cameras do not only protect buildings and people, but are also useful tools to:
Companies working in the energy sector have different access levels, depending on the relevant requirements. There are different levels, for example, for owners, for the O&M company and for the various sub-contractors.
It is sometimes crucial that only authorized persons have access to certain areas. This guarantees the reliability of the whole production process and increases the level of safety against possible internal and external attacks.
In general, full-height turnstiles for personnel are provided at pedestrian access points and vehicle barriers with RFID recognition systems are provided for cars and articulated vehicles.
The access control systems offered for the above sector guarantee the following:
Business continuity in the energy sector is a priority. Interruptions in the data flow can cause very significant losses and damage the image of a Company.
When there is a fire outbreak, a system capable of alerting at an early stage makes it possible to secure the contents of a building. The purposes of the smoke detection system can be summarized as follows:
The design, installation, putting into service, operational control and maintenance of smoke detection systems in the industrial sector take place in compliance with the UNI 9795, UNI EN54 and UNI 11224 Standards.
The choice of the detection technology depends on the specific requirements of a certain site. In large logistic areas or warehouses it is often possible to combine several technologies by using linear barriers, point sensors, air analysis chambers and suction systems based on LASER technology to detect smoke particles inside the air taken from the pipelines.
For safeguarding the goods contained in particularly critical rooms, such as the control room, UPS rooms and SERVER or EDP rooms, we offer a switching off system with dedicated central units in compliance with the EN 12094-1:2003 Standard. This system is capable of managing output modules for activation purposes and input modules for signaling possible failures and/or for the disablement of rooms.
These are particularly critical infrastructures. Therefore specific laws, such as the following, must be applied: DCPREV Note, file no. 1324 of 7/2/2012 for photovoltaic systems, MD 13/7/2011 for generator sets, K.D. 6/5/1940, no 635 for explosive environments, MD 31/7/1934 for mineral oil, circular letter no. 74 of 20/09/1956 for storage areas for LPG tanks, MD 14/5/2004 for LPG deposits, PD no. 340 of 24/10/2003 for street GPL stations, MD 28/06/2002 for street methane gas stations.
