The Energy & Utility sector includes facilities for generating, transmitting, and distributing energy of all kinds. This can include facilities for ensuring the water supply and extracting, refining and transporting of petroleum or petroleum products and chemical plants.
All of these assets and systems have one thing in common: holes in their security or safety can seriously threaten public health, the environment, the economy, or even national or global security. Consequent security, safety and communication difficulties are:
Preventing possible terrorist attacks and vandalism
Dealing with fire and explosions in harsh environments
Evacuating in a timely and efficient manner
Detecting intrusion, sabotage and malicious attacks
Managing a wide variety of different access authorizations
Adapting to various extreme environments and weather conditions
Pogo offers a wide range of products that includes special products such as explosion protected day or night cameras, infrared illuminators and long-distance cameras. With these products solutions from Pogo Security Systems help Energy and Utility facilities to deal with these security, safety and communication challenges.
