07 Nov There are already more than 100 parks connected to Turkana
And Turkana becomes indispensable in a system of perimeter protection for solar plants, why?
There are high security enclosures, such as prisons, nuclear power plants or border crossings that, given their peculiarities, have a high budget for security because they require careful monitoring and have their own security and CRA personnel to verify their alarms.
On the other hand there are farms, machinery camps or similar that, although they require surveillance, have a low budget for security and on many occasions a security system cannot be allowed. Therefore, we classify this type of facilities as low security enclosures.
What is the case of solar plants? These types of enclosures require surveillance given the high risks of intrusion and theft they have (many of these facilities are isolated in deserts or in complex environments). The problem increases because sometimes they have a limited budget and cannot afford the high security budget required by the presence of physical surveillance.
In addition, this type of solar system has a large number of false alarms because external factors (meteorology, uncontrolled vegetation, animals …) cause the number of false alarms to be much higher than other types of security systems such as indoor . In fact some cameras can reach more than 200 false alarms per day.
Conventional Alarm Receiving Centers are unable to resolve this large number of false alarms because they are not specialized in perimeter security systems, in fact their software does not allow it. That is when the need arises for an alarm verification service specialized in solar parks, such as that of Turkana, which, given its benefits and effectiveness, becomes indispensable in the safety of this type of enclosures.
That is why there are already more than 100 photovoltaic installations that in various countries of the world on three continents have trusted us and have required the Turkana security service, whose alarm receiving center, specialized in the verification of all types of alarms, filters and effectively manages the operability of CCTV cameras in any circumstance by detecting any risk of intrusion that may occur.
