CCTV network monitoring in Yanbu and Jeddah Oil sites – KSA

Key Features:

The Oil and Gas industry heavily relies on its control systems’ capability to visualize and manage critical processes on and around rigs and platforms, as well as the ability to monitor and control all field activities and applications in real time, to maintain high standards for safety and security.

The Challenges

• Hazardous ATEX Zone 1 areas
• Explosion proof hardware
• Ruggedized 4G cellular router to collect and transmit video streaming from Yanbu and Jeddah Oil sites.
• High quality and fast before and after sales technical support
• Limited budget

The Solution

The requirement was to provide the client, a leading Oil and Gas company in Saudi Arabia, with a full explosion proof ATEX/Zone 1 rated wireless solution to collect and transmit CCTV data in Yanbu and Jeddah.  Following a thorough examination, Xceltra decided to provide the client with a customised solution comprised of:

• Compact, cost-effective and secure industrial 4G/LTE WiFi routers with heavy duty explosion proof and weatherproof aluminium body and cover.
• Complete intrinsically safe LTE and WiFi antenna kits .

Even though this equipment is not available on the market, Xceltra was able to deliver Zone 1 rated Industrial 4G routers through product development. The delivery and installation of the wireless CCTV system in the hazardous locations were completed within 3 months.
