Following a lengthy evaluation process, a contract was awarded to Westminster to provide port screening services for an initial period of ten years, commencing 1 July 2021.
The 10+ year contract is based on Westminster’s proven Build-Operate-Transfer managed services model, successfully deployed elsewhere around the world, under which governments and facility operators can upgrade their security operations at no direct cost.
Westminster will provide all the screening systems, warehousing and infrastructure required to undertake screening and intrusive search of import containers, maintain and operate the systems and provide comprehensive training services to customs and other staff throughout the term of the agreement.
Commenting on the contract award, Westminster CEO, Peter Fowler, said:
“Following our announcement yesterday of a 20+ year multi-million USD managed services contract for airport security in Central Africa, I am delighted to be able to announce yet another long-term port security managed services contract, particularly in West Africa where we already have a strong presence.
“I know the West African authorities are very keen on capacity building, education and skills enhancement and I believe the services we offer, not just our technical expertise but our training and support services together with our community support programmes via the Westminster Group Foundation, will greatly benefit the country.
“This latest new contract win further demonstrates Westminster’s global reach and our ability to secure business in new territories and is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our business development teams around the world who have been working hard through the challenging conditions and travel restrictions created by the global pandemic. This particular contract is as a result of more than two years activities.”
