MAGAL IS AWARDED $2.1 MILLION CONTRACT FOR AN INTEGRATED SECURITY SOLUTION FOR THE PORT OF TARRAGONA IN SPAIN
YAHUD, Israel – Dec. 15th, 2014 -- Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAGS) announced today that it recently entered into a $2.1 million contract to deliver technology and services as part of an overall security solution for the Port of Tarragona in Spain.
The solution includes the full coverage of the port’s perimeter with taut wire detection (Magal’s DTR) as well as a decorative smart fence (Magal’s DTAC), enforced by microwave sensors and infrared beams. CCTV legacy coverage will also be extended by 150 new day/night and thermal cameras. The seaside will be monitored by six new dual technology (thermal and CCD) high resolution cameras, with accurate positioning and intelligent video analytics (using Magal’s MTC 1500i). This new deployment, along with the port’s legacy systems, will be fully integrated into a new state-of-the-art control center managed by Magal’s advanced command and control platform (Fortis4G), enabling mobile land and marine police to interact with the system.
Mr. Joan Bergada, Head of the Spanish Harbor Police commented: “The port was always secured in a reasonable manner; yet we had a set of diverse systems, each with its own management console. Magal’s Fortis4G enables us to operate our new and legacy systems, as well as PSIM and SIEM, easily and intuitively, through a unified platform. We are looking forward to expanding our coverage and integrating the additional subsystems.”
Miguel A. López Romero, Managing Director of Magal S3 España, S.L., commented: “We are proud to win this prestigious Western European project supporting the Port of Tarragona. They are recognized as a reference in vanguard and innovation, and I truly believe that our contribution will provide them with unprecedented and full situation awareness, as well as event investigation and global audit capabilities.”
