Magal Security Systems To Provide Security For Kenyan Port

Magal Security Systems, Ltd announced recently that it has signed a contract with the Port Authority of Kenya, valued at $21.4 million to secure the Port of Mombasa.

This contract follows a tender process, in which Magal S3 was one of 19 international companies that submitted proposals in a bid process directed by the World Bank, which will partially finance the project.

This turnkey project involves the development of civil and communications infrastructure, installation of a comprehensive security solution, commissioning, training and support.

The security solution to be supplied includes 10 kilometers of smart fence with Magal's innovative locating sensor -- Barricade II; various types of gates with access control; a full CCTV solution with long range day and night surveillance cameras, static and PTZ cameras and supported by Magal's latest IVA (Intelligent Video Analytics) product -- Maestro DB; intercom and radio communication and other security elements. All of the above will be networked and integrated by Fortis -- Magal's Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) system.

During the announcement and following the contract signing, Gichiri Ndua, managing director of KPA and Shukri Barmadi, chairman of KPA, emphasized the importance of the project in the development of the regional port.

"This project is key to securing the port, but more importantly, securing the trade and growth of Kenya and its neighboring countries,” Barmadi said. “We are pleased to be working with Magal S3 and in making this a reality."

"We are delighted to enter into this major contract with the Kenya Port Authority, which represents a new partnership for our company,” said Jacob Perry, chairman of the board of Magal S3. “The large scale of the project represents a significant business achievement and an important step in Magal's growth."
