Magal Receives $2.6m Order for Seaport Security
Magal S3 will deliver an integrated solution including a variety of security systems, including DTR (taut wire) which will be deployed on a wall running several kilometers along the coastline, gates and access control, radio communications, static and PTZ cameras.
All sensors and communications will be networked to two command and control centers (a main and backup) through Fortis - Magal S3's state of the art physical security information management system. The system will also integrate sophisticated technologies such as cooled thermal sensors and a remote acoustic hailing device. The contract is expected to be completed during 2011.
Eitan Livneh, president and CEO of Magal S3, said: â€œWe are proud to be delivering this comprehensive solution to this important customer, representing a major portion of the entire port project. It is also significant as it is our second win, following another order for $21.4m for the Mombasa port, reported just a few weeks ago.
â€œAs security is an integral part of international trade, ports are increasingly turning to solutions such as ours in order to comply with the ISPS code (International Ship and Port Facility Security). I believe that Magal is well-positioned to secure additional business in this vertical market and specifically in this region.â€
Will the new order enhance Magal's market share?
