Case Study

Port of Cork

As part of a progressive strategy to improve safety and security, the Port of Cork Commissioners decided to implement an advanced and fully integrated security management system. To meet this requirement, CEM Systems supplied its AC2000 SE.

The Port of Cork is the principal port on the south coast of Ireland, close to the major shipping lanes to Northern Europe with a cargo throughput of 9.8 M tonnes in 2004. It is Ireland's premier trading port to continental Europe with ultra-modern facilities handling all modes of traffic such as crude and refined oils, containers and ferry traffic. Employing over 100 full-time staff it is not only a generator of economic activity but is also a significant catalyst for economic development with total contributions on goods and services of $230 million to the Irish economy.

Over the past three years, the Port of Cork Company has been progressively improving safety and security throughout its sites. As part of this progressive strategy, the Port of Cork Commissioners decided to implement an advanced and fully integrated security management system. To meet this requirement, CEM Systems supplied its AC2000 SE (Standard Edition) system which was installed as part of a major contract awarded to ADT Fire & Security. The CEM AC2000 SE system is supported by ADT's CCTV system and intercom network, offering a complete security management solution.

Safeguarding the workplace

The AC2000 SE system has been safeguarding many high security facilities for many years. Ideal for ports, AC2000 SE provides great flexibility and stability with advanced access control and ID badging that enabled Port of Cork authorities to satisfy requirements under the International Ship and Port facility Security code (ISPS). "AC2000 SE proved an ideal system to enable our port facilities to increase security conditions in response to the ISPS code introduced in 2004," commented Captain Pat Murphy, Alt. Port Facility Security Officer at Port of Cork Company. "AC2000 SE is responsible for access control at six port sites, securing the many buildings and cargo areas across the vast harbour estate," Murphy continued.
