NEC Inks a Billion Dollar TSS Contract with Large-scale Oil Refinery in Kuwait

NEC

NEC Corporation announces that its telecommunications and security systems have been contracted by JGC CORPTORATION. With the gross value of the order is estimated Yen1.3 billion; the systems that NEC will provide to the Mina Al-Ahmadi Refinery consists of telecommunications systems, including VoIP phone and wired/wireless in-plant LAN systems, and security systems such as video surveillance, access management and emergency broadcast systems.

The construction of telecommunications and security systems for oil refinery plants requires industry-specific system design and construction know-how, such as the utilization of electronic devices to which explosion-proofing processes have been applied in order to reduce the risk of fires and explosions, and designs that physically isolate networks that handle highly confidential communications from regular telecommunications networks.

Talking on this deployment, Tan Boon Chin, Managing Director, Global Safety Division, NEC Corporation said, “We are pleased to be able to contribute to JGC’s cutting-edge refinery project. NEC possesses some of the world’s top-level image recognition and communication technologies, such as facial recognition, crowd behavior analysis, super-resolution technologies and Software Defined Networking (SDN). Moving forward, by working in collaboration with engineering companies, we’d like to propose solutions that integrate these technologies with plant-oriented systems in order to contribute to the even safer and more secure operation of important facilities such as refineries and power plants.”

NEC will commence delivery of the systems from December 2015.
