QUEENSLAND’S Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy is seeking an electric gate, security lighting/CCTV and a security alarm system for the Queerah Explosive Reserve.
The explosives reserves are large areas of land put aside for for the safe storage, distribution and disposal of explosives by the Qld Government.
Individuals and companies can use the government explosives reserves if they hold the appropriate licences issued by the Chief Inspector of Explosives. Other government entities with vested interests in the safety and security of explosives, and protecting the community, also use the reserves.
These are complex sites and the services provided by the Queerah Explosive Reserve include:
Secure explosives storehouses
Incinerators for disposing of explosives
Testing and demolition ranges
Transit storage areas
Container stuffing/de-stuffing areas
Ammonium nitrate storage pads
Transit explosives vehicle areas
Storage of explosives as evidence for Queensland Police or the inspectorate
Storing seized explosives
Collection and pickup service for unwanted explosives
Demonstration of the power of explosives
Law enforcement agency training.
To meet its requirements, the DNRME is seeking expressions of interest from qualified electronic security suppliers and integrators for the supply and installation of a new electronic security solution – the Queerah location is 12km south of Cairns.
The tender closes on February 27, 2019.
