DVTel, a provider of smart security solutions, announced that the Nathpa Jhakri Hydro Power Station (NJHPS), India's largest hydroelectric power project, has installed DVTel's security operations center to protect operational areas of the power station.
The project uses both fixed and PTZ cameras from DVTel, and they are used to monitor sensitive areas of the plant, such as the inside of the hydroelectric plant's headrace tunnel, the longest in India, and power generation and distribution areas of the facility. Officials at Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited (SJVN), operators of the power station, chose DVTel and systems integrator Optimum Security Solutions to install the system and DVTel cameras, conquering major topographical and environmental challenges such as mountainous terrain and hot, humid operating conditions inside turbine rooms.
"The DVTel system has not only enhanced the security level of this plant but also created a secure and efficient environment", said Shri Manoj Kumar, Senior Manager of SJVNL.
SJVNL security officials are using the solution to monitor the sprawling hydroelectric plant, which stretches more than 31 miles from the location of the dam site the power generation facilities.
