CEM Systems, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, has announced that the industry leading AC2000 security management system has been installed in the Sur Independent Power Plant (IPP), Oman. The system was installed by CEM Approved Reseller Majees Technical Services LLC.
The gas and oil -fired Sur Independent Power Plant (IPP) will be the largest power plant in Oman, representing approximately 30% of Oman’s installed power capacity when it is complete in 2014. The $1.6bn project owned by Phoenix Power Company SAOC will provide much needed power to meet the growing demand for electricity by employing state of the art technology and introducing high efficiency conversion technology.
CEM’s AC2000 is a powerful and reliable access control and security management system used to protect sites where security is of paramount importance. AC2000 provides Sur Independent Power Plant with a suite of essential client and browser based applications including central alarm monitoring, integrated command and control, sophisticated ID badging, visitor management, time and attendance and much more.
“Having worked with CEM Systems previously on a number of projects in Oman, we knew the AC2000 system would be the perfect solution for Sur Independent Power Plant” said Sekhar Subramonian, General Manager (F&S Division), Majees Technical Services LLC. He continued “With software applications such as Time and Attendance, AC2000 offers the power plant more than just access control, it offers a way of increasing business efficiency and cost savings”.
“CEM works closely with customers to provide a solution which meets their specific needs” said Philip Verner, Regional Sales Director, EMEA, CEM Systems. “The AC2000 Time and Attendance module provides a user friendly interface which allows the company to monitor and report on employee IN and OUT swipes each day, ensuring staff have completed their daily/ weekly contracted hours. Existing cards and readers can be used for both access control and time and attendance, providing significant project cost savings.”
The sDCM300 low cost, two door intelligent serial controller was also installed throughout the power plant. The sDCM300 interfaces third party read heads with the CEM AC2000 access control system. Using a powerful 32bit processor, the sDCM300 gives full off-line validation and decision making at the point of entry, even when host communication is not available.
Built with the flexibility to grow as the user requirements change, the AC2000 system has provided Sur Independent Power Plant with virtually unlimited expansion capabilities.
