AMG Supplies Integrated Transmission Solution for Fertiliser Plant in Oman
AMG | Date:
AMG announces that they have supplied their series transmission solution for the new integrated security & surveillance solution at the OMIFCO fertilizer plant in OMAN.
The solution has been implemented by Majees Technical Services, Oman's leading systems integrator for large scale plant security solutions and Oil & Gas sites.
Mr. Sekhar Subramonian, GM at Majees says, “The OMIFCO plant is located on the coast south of Muscat and has facilities for ships docking and loading, as all the production output is exported for use in India. The security & surveillance solution is very comprehensive and includes CCTV, Access Control, and PIDS on the fences, as well as key tracking, all of which are integrated into the Security Management System. Additional Access Control systems are provided, along with turnstiles and quick folding gates. The transmission solution has been designed as a Drop-and-Insert ring solution with 50 percent spare capacity for future proofing. As the site is so massive, this was the most cost effective transmission system design, as using more conventional point-to-point systems would have massively increased the required cable infrastructure. We have also integrated capabilities for the perimeter intruder detection system to interact with the CCTV solution via the SMS. The solution includes 64 cameras, of which 35 are PTZ, as well as a number of Thermal Imaging cameras, which are operated on separate data channels. All CCTV video signals are transmitted as uncompressed, real-time, with zero latency to the on-site control room. With such a large number of different systems to integrate into the transmission solution, we worked with AMG Systems to facilitate the use of multiple data protocols. We found that our requirements for customizing the equipment were easily implemented and this includes adding daughter boards to allow for all the data communications required. Specifically, we had a need for some changes to the daughter boards both at transmission and receiver end and they work just fine. I would like to commend AMG for their excellent after sales and technical support throughout the project.”
