Security Systems for Utility Companies & Power Plants

Utility companies have unique requirements for their security systems and video surveillance.  North Dakota companies with electrical substations, power plants, and critical infrastructure, trust NewVision Security as their security contractor of choice.

What are the Benefits of Security Systems for Utility Companies?

 

Video surveillance plays an important role in the physical security of your substations and they can also give an early warning for a wide variety of events including equipment failure and crime. Together with your security system and access control systems, you’re able to detect events quickly to thwart crime, protect mission critical equipment, and capture valuable information to improve operations. Utility companies have important requirements for sustaining electricity, water and gas supplies to the communities they serve. Whether you represent a power plant, substation, or another type of utility company or cooperative, there are many benefits to upgrading your IP surveillance and access control systems including:

  •  Increased workplace productivity
  • Decreased claims and liability
  • Meet industry regulations
  • Visual deterrent for trespassing, theft and vandalism
  • Remote monitoring from your computer or mobile device
  • Improved operational efficiency throughout the facility
  • Enhanced incident reporting and record keeping
  • Automatic equipment monitoring and alerts
  • Asset Management
  • Substation automation
  • Motion detection and event triggers
  • Perimeter violation alerts

North Dakota’s Utility Companies Trust NewVision Security for Life Protection, Asset Management, and Operational Efficiency. 

 

Why Do Utility Companies Need Security Systems?

In the developed world, the people demand electricity and the utility companies work hard to provide a steady supply. The stakes are high considering the many operational requirments and security threats including:

  • Physical security
  • Vandalism and theft
  • Time loss incidents
  • Unplanned maintenance 
  • Equipment damage
  • Personnel problems
  • Acts of terrorism
  • Brownouts and blackouts

How Do Utility Companies Protect Their People, Equipment, and Critical Infrastructure?

The leading electric providers are looking to modern technologies to enhance their security and life protection measures. Today’s systems help monitor critical equipment, create a safer working environment, and cut production costs. At NewVision Security, we design video surveillance systems that you can rely on to withstand harsh environments including North Dakota winters and the most demanding substations. Your system will be built to the following specifications:

  • IP cameras and PTZ cameras are dust and water tight
  • Surveillance delivers high definition (HD) video on-demand with remote access
  • Ability to withstand a wide range of temperature variances
  • Installed, serviced and updated to meet compliance for evolving regulatory requirements including North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) plan
  • Compatibility and interoperability with many existing systems and incumbent technologies
  • Access control system safeguards entry points to critical infrastructure
  • Ability to withstand high levels of electromagnetic interference (EMI) 
  • Ability to withstand high levels of vibration and shock
  • Ability to withstand chemical degradation 
  • Ability to withstand destructive pollutants

NewVision Security Systems Designs Solutions Specifically for Utility Companies

In the short run, just about any commercial grade system will do but in power plants and electrical substations, the daily wear and tear of the environment takes it’s toll and causes failures. These systems are only as robust as their design and installation allows so it’s important to have a skilled and experienced team of professional installers. There are many considerations for installing security systems and surveillance cameras in a utilities building or substation including the unique use case, building architecture, threats, cameras, software, incumbent technologies, and industrial regulations. A security system designed specifically for your building and use case will meet the rigorous demands for years to come and help avoid system failures and costly repairs. Together your security, access control, and video monitoring systems are vital components of life protection, asset management, and operational efficiency.
