COMPANY OVERVIEW

The Methanol Company is renowned for its significant contributions to the 
local economy through producing and exporting methanol. However, the remote locations of their plants and limited power infrastructure posed substantial security challenges.

SECURITY NEEDS

The Methanol Company faced several security challenges that required urgent attention:
•    Ensuring the security of three completed plants and one plant under construction.
•    Safeguarding valuable materials and assets within the plants, which collectively accounted for several billions of dollars.
•    Overcoming the difficulty of providing power to the vast perimeter of all the plants.
•    Centralizing surveillance footage from the three plants at the main security office.
•    Managing the extensive perimeters, which spanned over 4 miles (approximately 6,544 meters) for all three plants.

SECURITY NEEDS

Sun Surveillance provided a tailor-made solution to address the Methanol Company’s unique security requirements. The key components of the solution included:
•    Installation of Solstice Poles equipped with cutting-edge Mobotics Cameras at strategic locations.
•    Implementation of a point-to-multi-point backhaul system to facilitate seamless data transmission across the vast expanse of the plants.

OVERCOMING CHALLENGES

Sun Surveillance’s innovative approach played a crucial role in overcoming the Methanol Company’s challenges:
•    Solar-powered Solstice Poles were deployed, eliminating the need for a conventional power source. This proved invaluable for securing plants located in areas with limited power infrastructure.
•    The point-to-multi-point backhaul system enabled secure and real-time video transmission over extensive perimeters, even in regions with limited internet connectivity.

BENEFITS AND RESULTS

The collaborative effort between the Methanol Company and Sun Surveillance yielded a range of benefits, including:
•    Enhanced perimeter security across all plants, effectively safeguarding the company’s billion-dollar assets from potential threats.
•    Centralized monitoring at the main security office, providing real-time situational awareness to security personnel.
•    Improved responsiveness to potential security incidents, thanks to the seamless transmission of video footage.
•    Significant cost savings, as the solar-powered and wireless solution reduced the need for expensive infrastructure and maintenance.

CONCLUSION

Sun Surveillance’s expertise in crafting tailored security solutions proved instrumental in fortifying the Methanol Company’s plants against potential security risks. The innovative deployment of solar-powered Solstice Poles and the implementation of a point-to-multi-point backhaul system exemplify the company’s commitment to meeting the unique needs of the methanol industry.
