Golden Valley, MN - Honeywell recently announced it has been selected to help protect Woodside's Pluto onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant with a sophisticated industrial security system.
Honeywell's integrated industrial security solutions facilitate faster and more-informed responses to potential risks. Built on the Honeywell Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) security management platform, the system for the Pluto LNG Project will provide convenient monitoring and single-window control of all access control, intrusion detection and video surveillance sub-systems. Woodside previously contracted Honeywell to design, engineer, test and stage the system, which is scheduled for completion in December 2008. When commissioned, the Pluto facility is expected to produce 4.3 million tons of LNG per year.
Woodside will use EBI to control video surveillance technology, including thermal imaging night-vision cameras. All video information will be fed to the Honeywell Digital Video Manager (DVM), a digital closed-circuit television system that facilitates instant retrieval of relevant video history as well as video analytics, archiving and export. The Pluto industrial security system will also include access controllers and card readers, perimeter fence intrusion detection and biometric readers so that only authorized personnel will have access to specific areas of the plant.
"The protection of people, property and information is critical for any industrial processing plant," said Tony Cosgrove, managing director, Honeywell Process Solutions Pacific. "Honeywell has worked closely with Woodside for nearly 30 years on previous projects to implement a suite of best-in-class technology solutions. Woodside will be able to leverage these solutions for the Pluto LNG Project, by fully-integrating all systems to work together effectively and promoting a safe environment."
