Security and fire safety
Keeping the main turbine building with all its equipment and operating it efficiently is critical to the viability of a power plant. Should an incident occur, there must be a rapid intervention. Threats have to be identified early and eliminated reliably, affecting as little equipment as possible – and it’s preferable to prevent incidents before they occur. Whether it’s a column of smoke, or unauthorised access – all processes must work together to ensure an appropriate level of response.
Preventive measures such as video surveillance, intruder alarms, access control, and even biometric identification in nuclear plants – these systems are key components to form the basis of security systems, together with fire safety, extinguishing, and evacuation systems.
However, command and control systems from Siemens look at the demands of a power plant including the turbine building as a whole – from security equipment to building technology and fire safety. And then we build intelligent solutions that protect staff, equipment, and the entire infrastructure.
