The company PT Pelabuhan Indonesia 1 specializes in handling containers for international and domestic transportation in many ports in Indonesia. Due to harsh seaside conditions amidst facilities like container cranes and hypermodern cranes, they require top-class security equipment to ensure safety of employees, while enduring the extreme conditions there. Upon screening through many security providers, Bosch was selected for its ability to fulfill all their requirements at the seaport in Medan.
Muhamad Natsir S. Sos, Safety and Security manager at Belawan International Container Terminal said: "During the rigorous selection process, Bosch Security Systems was found to have outperformed the others in terms of image quality of their video systems, and audio clarity of their public address system."
Installer PT. SensorLink Yumitaro Indonesia brought in the following systems into the seaport: the Praesideo Digital Public Address and Emergency Sound System, Dinion and AutoDome cameras, and the Video Management System from Bosch (BVMS). In the instance of an emergency evacuation, the Praesideo consisting of speakers and microphones will project loud and clear announcements. To protect the pier, the Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA)-enabled cameras provide advanced detection functions ranging from head detection to trajectory tracking. In addition, the AutoDome cameras are vandal-resistant and weatherproof, making them perfect equipments to handle seaside conditions.
Images captured by the cameras are processed by the BVMS which plays a crucial role in daily operations through the monitoring of all port activities. The cost-effective integrated security systems also enhanced overall productivity and quality of service of the ports.
The highly satisfied PT Pelabuhan Indonesia 1 has applauded Bosch for the competent products and plans to include more products in future.
