SA Water has awarded AG Security Group a major enterprise security contract that integrates fencing, automatic gates, video surveillance, access control and a security management system.
SA Water is the South Australian State Government entity responsible for managing the state’s water infrastructure. The security contract program of works incorporates integrated electronic and perimeter security upgrades across a majority of their sites over a 3-year period.
“Our team is excited to continue working with SA Water,” said Michael O’Connell, managing director of AG Security Group. “We are a progressive organisation when it comes to security, so to be chosen as a partner in delivering their security requirements is a real privilege for us.
“To have a single security partner that can integrate surveillance, access control and sophisticated software with their monitored security fencing, automated gates, turnstiles and other perimeter security technologies means the security solution becomes a vital part of a client’s security infrastructure. Further, information gathered by the system is also valued by other teams managing critical functions, such as human resources and safety.”
AG Security Group has been servicing utility entities is the energy and water industries for more than 15 years and delivers both electronic and perimeter security solutions with minimal reliability on external contractors. This capability is favoured by utility groups due to their large number of sites of varying sizes and complexity, in addition to their vast geographical dispersion.
