G4S Technology LLC (formerly Adesta) a systems integrator and project management company for communication networks and electronic security systems, has been selected by Iberdrola USA (IUSA) to help them upgrade existing Access Control Systems (ACS) and Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) systems. IUSA, a subsidiary of global energy company Iberdrola S.A., plans to create a single centrally-monitored and administered electronic ACS and Video Management System (VMS) across their New York and Maine service territories. Iberdrola S.A. has a long-term security plan to develop a global standards-based platform for ACS and other security platforms including CCTV and Intrusion Detection.
This project is a 2-year deployment which began in late 2011. Facilities to receive upgrades include electrical substations, hydroelectric stations, and service centers. The project will require the replacement of access control panels at the Iberdrola USA facilities, replacement of existing cameras with thermal cameras, replacement of existing ACS systems with AMAG Symmetry, replacement of existing analytics and VMS, an upgrade of their Security Operations Center (SOC), new security equipment racks, integration, installation and project management.
“Through our value-added engineering, G4S Technology LLC has been able to provide Iberdrola USA with a comprehensive analytic solution and an enhanced thermal design that will help serve their needs both today and for many years to come,” said Bob Sommerfeld, President of G4S Technology. “We are honored to be working with this prestigious energy company, and look forward to helping them realize their goals.”
“G4S Technology was selected after a thorough proposal and evaluation process,” said Dave Lathrop, Manager - Security Technical Services. “We were very impressed with their response to our request for proposal. Their experience was noted as they provided significant value engineering to the design. Iberdrola USA is confident that G4S Technology has the ability to complete the project on-time and within budget.”
