Power Station Site Security Upgrade
Fencing, CCTV, Access Control
Freedom was briefed to upgrade existing site security measures to protect the boundaries of a major coal-fired power station and CCGT plant in the East Midlands. The site was required to remain fully operational and secure throughout the installation process with minimum disturbances.
A turnkey solution was developed to successfully integrate the new system with the site’s existing access control. Freedom provided the civils and electrical works. Freedom oversaw the installation of the security system’s hardware and software, the main servers and operating systems, and the design of the fibre optic and LAN infrastructure. The scale of the project meant that Freedom had to overcome a number of technical, logistical and operational challenges. This included the 5km perimeter fencing, which was hampered by large areas of bush and scrubland, all of which required clearing prior to installation.
The works involved delivery of civil and technology capabilities on a design and build basis and included: ground excavation, 5km of 3m weld-mesh fence (inner and outer), perimeter intruder detection, electrical and fibre optic infrastructure, lighting, integrated CCTV and access control.
