HID Access Control Solutions Increase Security at Power Plant in China

HID Global announced today that the company’s network access control solutions and contactless readers have been deployed at the Fuxi power plant in China’s Sichuan province. The new system provides increased security that ensures the operational safety of production and facility areas, offers real-time monitoring at the central station and enables security administrators to remotely close facility doors for improved safety management.

HID Global’s VertX V2000 network access controllers, iCLASS R10 contactless readers and Genuine HID credentials were installed at the 141 acre (57 hectare) Fuxi power plant, enabling administrators to restrict staff access levels and entry times based on job titles and critical entry zones, such as the main production plant, engine room, central station and chemical waste areas.

With the new system, access to the chemical waste area is restricted to authorized staff, and administrators can now establish access rights to prevent unauthorized entry and ensure occupational safety. Additionally, iCLASS readers provide data encryption and mutual authentication capabilities, significantly increasing the plant’s security.

“HID Global’s access control system was installed in the first phase of the project, which significantly enhanced the overall security and improved efficiency,” said Fu Bo, sectional chief with Fuxi power plant. “By leveraging the advantages of the web-based, centralized access control system, administrators can now remotely control various entry points, which has substantially reduced patrol deployment time. The system also provides multi-layered security to eliminate unauthorized access to the plant.”

“After several onsite assessments, HID Global customized an access control solution that fulfills Fuxi power plant’s need for an advanced access control and management system,” said Eric Chiu, director of sales, Identity and Access Management, China with HID Global. “China is making it a priority to upgrade its energy infrastructure, which will continue to drive the country’s growing demand for high security access control solutions. Our successful deployment at the Fuxi power plant has reinforced HID Global’s proven technology expertise and ongoing commitment to address the unique security challenges faced by utility facilities across the region.”
