Senstar Delivers 200 Km of Security Systems to Protect European Renewable Energy Facilities
June 18th, 2012 – Ottawa, Canada – Senstar Corporation announced today the sale of over 200 Km of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) protecting solar power generation facilities in Germany.
“The most popular product for solar facilities protection to date has been Senstar’s FlexPS fence mounted sensor,” said Peter Goering, Managing Director of Senstar GmbH. “FlexPS has proven its reliability and robustness in operation as well as ease of installation.”
Unlike large scale power plants, which require multi layer security systems to protect against threats such as terrorism, smaller and more eco-friendly facilities often use more affordable PIDS solutions in order to protect against common threats of theft and vandalism. With the largest product range of PIDS products and technologies, Senstar is able to provide solutions that fit any requirements, big or small.
Senstar has a long history of protecting major critical infrastructure sites throughout Europe, and the World. With the shift from large-scale power plants, to distributed renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind, Senstar is once again being looked at as the go-to provider of PIDS solutions.
After Germany’s decision to increase its renewable energy resources the installation of photo voltaic (PV) plants increased rapidly. In 2011 alone, a capacity of 25,000 megawatts was installed; and in May 2012 the generated power of the PV plants across the country, all together, matched the power of approximately 20 nuclear power stations (Reuters, Berlin, 05/26/2012).
