PT Pelabuhan Selects Bosch to Secure its Indonesian Seaport
PT Pelabuhan, a company specializing in handling containers for international and domestic transportation in several ports in Indonesia, has chosen Bosch to help secure its seaport in Medan.
Due to harsh seaside conditions amidst container cranes and hypermodern cranes, the company requires top-class security equipment to ensure the safety of employees.
"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," said Muhamad Natsir S. Sos, safety and security manager at Belawan International Container Terminal.
The company installed Bosch's Video Management System, the Praesideo Digital Public Address and Emergency Sound System, and Dinion and AutoDome cameras into its seaport. In the instance of an emergency evacuation, 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, enabling them to handle the 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 enhance overall productivity and quality of service at the ports.
