Context

The Port of Tilbury, situated on the River Thames, has an annual throughput of 16 million tonnes per year, with an estimated value of around £8.7 billion. It is the main UK port for handling the importation of paper, as well as grain and bulks, cruises and property solutions.

Requirement

As a supplier of the FenceSecure system, Jacksons worked with its partners, Harper Chalice, to install the Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) around the existing fencing at Tilbury2.

Solution

The fence-mounted system consists of a piezoelectric sensor cable which is attached to the fence, and detects attempts to cut, climb, jack or vandalise the system, sending audible signals and vibrations to a seismic analyser. It has exceeded the required standards for tests by UK Home Office and other Government tests for reliability, false alarms and detection, and is approved for use on CNI and HM Prison sites.

FenceSecure can be installed on most types of security fencing, including chain link, welded mesh, and vertical bar railings, to provide early warning of any intrusion attempt. The system also has no topographical limitations. PIDS are a discreet security measure, and are ideal when used as part of an integrated security strategy as a highly reliable form of detection.

Outcome

With valuable and essential goods passing through the port every day, the upgrades to security will help to protect the operations and ensure that they continue to run smoothly and reduce delays.
