CCTV For Power Stations
Safety, Security & Process Control
Power stations have a real need for decent, reliable CCTV for a range of applications.
NX1 (UK) Limited serve a number of power stations around the country, incorporating cameras for safety & security, process control, barrier control, fibre optic systems, thermal imaging, flame detection, and explosion proof equipment.
Safety is paramount at power stations. CCTV equipment can be a vital tool in making sure regulations and practices are adhered to by staff, contractors and visitors, as well as giving operators the ability to spot hazards - potential and actual - before they escalate in to something more serious. Recorded streams can also act as a witness in the event of a court case, showing what went wrong and proving laws, regulations and practices were followed in the event of an incident.
All types of power stations can also attract unwanted attention from the public. This may be in the form of theft, vandalism, or even protest. An NX1 CCTV system can help protect sites from unauthorised access, and help bring offenders to prosecution in the event of an incident.
In any industrial plant such as a power station, CCTV can be utilised for process control, such as the monitoring of conveyer belts, hoppers, and chutes, linked back to a central control room. Monitoring stations can be custom set to optimise productivity or follow certain production lines.
Process control CCTV can also help improve safety within a power station. Strategically placed cameras are able to monitor areas which may be hazardous to health for employees. Monitoring areas via the use of multiple CCTV cameras can create cost savings by reducing the need for additional staff, plus on costs such as training and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).
Within the environment of a power station, more specialist CCTV equipment may be required to cover certain high-risk areas. You can read more about these types of CCTV cameras and systems we provide, install and maintain by following the links below.
Thermal Imaging CCTV - Identify sources of heat within the CCTV video feed, useful to spot failing or overheating parts within a production line, or identify a hidden intruder! More info...
Flame Detection CCTV - Spot actual flames within the CCTV camera's line of sight, can be linked to alarm systems. Useful in areas where a thermal imaging system may not be suitable, for example steam can flood a thermal imaging CCTV stream with solid colour, making identifying a fire more difficult. More info...
Explosion Proof Equipment (ATEX) - Equipment certified to withstand explosions, allowing monitoring of areas unsuitable for people, or in high-risk areas where an explosion may be likely. More info...
