With stock of immense value on-site, the energy industry contends with major security threats today as perpetrators target these facilities for its precious inventory. By providing security solutions that can curb the threat of perpetrators breaching the perimeter from outside, while also securing and regulating the facility’s staff from within, modern protection solutions can effectively mitigate the threat of danger.

The energy market, by its very nature, also faces significant security threats, given that stock and equipment of huge value are involved.

These facilities are prime targets for criminals, and the challenge is to keep criminals out of these properties while simultaneously securing the employees who work there.

At C3, we utilize 4D site evaluation to recommend the correct solution for such high-risk facilities. We provide unique solutions for each particular site, based on differences in the environment, location and immediate threats faced. It is therefore of utmost importance to create a barrier against such activities in order to keep these facilities safe.

The risk of fire is, naturally, another major concern. When conducting consultations with on-site fire engineers at these facilities, the main challenge concerns overheating of equipment while in operation, which could cause major damage, which in turn causes downtime and loss of production hours. The major risk is that electricity facilities, by their very nature, have inherent fire risks due to short circuits which will result in an electric fire. These fires can't be extinguished successfully with the old, conventional water systems. C3 employs the latest technology to counter what is a significant problem.

Other fire risks at such installations include lubrication oil at turbines which is one of the most common causes of fires, compressors that use natural gas which can cause explosions, transformer fires which are usually started with a short circuit, wring faults and others.

Fire detection at these establishments is of imperative importance. The earlier an increase in temperature can be identified, the earlier action can be taken to isolate a particular piece of equipment so that the necessary fault finding can be done.
