Major port secures critical infrastructure with FLIR


Peel Ports Great Yarmouth recently turned to Check Your Security Ltd., a Norfolk-based IP security systems integrator, for the integration of a comprehensive video surveillance system to safeguard cargo, infrastructure and people. The company opted for FLIR’s Latitude VMS, which provides forensic-quality imaging and user-friendly operation consisting of dedicated, web-based and mobile client software.

Peel Ports Great Yarmouth is a modern, multi-purpose port, based in Norfolk, UK. The port integrates a new, deep-water outer harbour, as well as a well-established river port that serves the Oil and Gas fields of the southern North Sea. Port operators decided to have a comprehensive security monitoring solution in place in order to safeguard cargo, infrastructure and people. Using FLIR’s network-based video management solution (VMS), the port is now able to meet the needs of today’s demands, as well as tomorrow’s business growth.

All camera video streams needed to be fed into a central control room, and further scaling of the camera network within the town of Great Yarmouth was needed. The video surveillance solution used FLIR’s Quasar Quad HD cameras and older analogue cameras, coupled with video encoders from FLIR, offering Peel Ports many options to efficiently secure the harbour area.
