|Nuon awarded Siemens the order for the ICT and security infrastructure for its new power station at Eemshaven|
One aspect of the order involves the complete telecommunication infrastructure covering telephony, UHF radio, audio/video, the office network and meteorology system. The other aspect of the order covers the entire security infrastructure with alarm and emergency evacuation system, access control using SiPort (the Siemens access control system that is used at other Nuon sites as well), the connection to the national access control network, as well as the CCTV system and intruder detection facilities.
A unique feature is that, for the first time in the Netherlands, the Siveillance SiteIQ intruder detection and video analysis solution from Siemens is to be used in a commercial scenario. This system has been specifically designed to protect premises that form part of the critical infrastructure. It provides a live feed of the situation at large sites at a glance. This is useful for an early heads-up on nonconforming and unusual situations, which is of primary importance on sites where power is generated and safety is paramount. SiteIQ not only facilitates early detection, but also speeds up raising the alarm and follow-up.
Engineering has already commenced and expectations are that the first phase of the ICT and security infrastructure will be ready for handover early in 2011.
