STC install new CCTV cameras, Security Barriers, new Access Control system and relocate Weighbridge

STC's expertise fully utilised in moving Security Lodge for Stowmarket plant of multi-national business

The Climax Molybdenum Company's Stowmarket plant in the United Kingdom is one of the world’s premier production and conversion facilities for ferromolybdenum. 

They had a requirement to relocate their Security Lodge on their site.  This move incorporated many fields within the STC portfolio: -

1. Relocation of Existing Weighbridge including PC Software Control Package

2. Installation of CCTV Cameras to monitor movement in and out of site and link these recordings onto the PC network allowing users across the company to view CCTV cameras as and when required

3. Installation of four new barriers to control movement of cars and lorries entering and exiting the site

4. Installation of access control system for staff members to gain access to the site through the barrier system using staff identity cards

All of this work was undertaken on a very tight schedule so as not to affect production on site. 

We worked alongside a civil contractor to ensure health and safety regulations were covered at all times.

Overall we delivered, installed and carried out training on all the equipment on time meeting the Climax deadline.

Additional detail:

CCTV System
The extensive CCTV system on site was integrated with new cameras for the entrance way and all the cameras were linked back to the new security office to allow staff to view the whole of the site from the new location.

The weighbridge has been constructed so that lorry drivers can now enter and leave site without having to leave their vehicle.  The PC now controls all deliveries and collections, capturing driver information.

Access Control
Access control terminals have the ability to communicate to a security officer, and/or use staff ID cards to automatically open barriers.  The access control system, also on the PC network, logs time of arrival and time of departure of each person coming onto site.

The access control cards were printed on a card printer showing company logo, staff member’s photograph and contact details.
