Have you ever wondered how Beirut Port maintains security despite the fact that the main highway runs adjacent to it? Well, I did and apparently the committee overseeing the port were themselves worried and have taken appropriate action:
To combat the inherent problems of people smuggling; shipping container theft and tax evasion, the Beirut Seaport Committee needed a perimeter security system capable of withstanding the harsh coastal conditions and operating without power on the seaport’s 5 km perimeter fence.
The chosen security system, Secure Fence™, developed by Future Fibre Technologies and installed by Site Technology – Beirut has overcome these challenges to operate successfully on the seaport site’s perimeter.
The installed system interfaces with the Beirut Seaport’s CCTV system and importantly, requires no power anywhere along the perimeter.[…] The entire 5km perimeter operates with just one Secure Fence™ system, which is completely immune to the very salty conditions encountered at seaport sites.
