Physical Protection of Assets
Focusing on value rather than cost through collaboration achieves cost-efficiencies
The security landscape within the UK’s water industry has evolved beyond recognition since the advent of dedicated legislation twenty years ago. From the upgrade of service reservoir protection that rolled out from the late 1990s, to the mature and sophisticated levels of security that ramify through today’s network, UK water sets a world-class standard in its approach to water asset hardening. It has seen nothing less than a revolution in the water security product market dominated by LPCB certificated equipment, from upstand covers and security louvres, to large security kiosks – built off-site and craned into place. Today, security hardware is being seamlessly integrated with today’s digital technology including electronic access control, wireless alarm networks and CCTV. As the industry gears up for AMP7 with talk of asset optimisation, operational efficiency and a hefty focus on ‘value’ rather than ‘cost’, Technocover’s founding principle of ‘Total Service’ is more relevant than ever before.
Physical Security for Infrastructure
Smart innovation and site-efficient solutions to any scale – delivered at lowest cost
The physical security of assets on infrastructure sites is reaching new levels of sophistication and technical challenge. Utilities and other critical industries are systemically ‘hardening’ their operations, above and below ground, against identified risks of attack or infiltration by the criminal, saboteur or terrorist. Not only are the challenges growing in scale, clients are also demanding even greater functionality, adaptability and speed of installation from security enclosures, access covers and associated products for protecting vital process, storage and distribution assets.
Technocover security kiosks plug smoothly into Wessex Water’s Water Supply Grid
Certfified physical protection is vital to ensure that water infrastructure assets are resilient to unauthorised entry, vandalism, criminal attack, extortion and even terrorist threats that could disrupt operations and supply. In line with security provision across all Wessex Water assets, the Water Supply Grid project team and its delivery partners are implementing stringent levels of physical protection to safeguard the new facilities. Early supplier involvement and use of pre-fitted security kiosks has delivered programme benefits in the upgrade of pumping stations.
Physical Protection of Water Assets
Meeting operational and security needs
During two decades of working to legislated levels of security for physical access, the UK water industry has ushered a revolution in certified physical protection. While meeting this critical and immovable benchmark of resilience, solutions in AMP6 have pushed the envelope in design and functionality as never before. Security performance, of course, remains king, but criminal attack, extortion, infiltration, and terrorism in its many and increasingly unexpected forms are all a constant threat to lifestyle and the national infrastructure that underpins it.
