The security issues facing petrochemical sites are many and complex. A plant-wide surveillance system is therefore an essential tool to monitor incidents, protect assets, manage health and safety, detect theft and combat terrorism. Petrochemical sites, which are highly volatile environments spread out over large areas, require many different operators to have access to the same CCTV images. This demands a flexible and truly distributed CCTV system that delivers the very highest quality video.
IndigoVision’s complete IP Video solution has been installed to enhance the security at Royal Vopak’s petrochemical storage terminal in West Thurrock, UK. With 12m cubic feet of storage capacity in 125 tanks, Vopak’s terminal is a very demanding environment with security and health & safety of paramount importance.
