The Complete Port Security Package

Westminster can provide complete security packages for various elements of the port security plan. Security packages are completely bespoke and designed to suite the port and the operating environment without sacrificing quality and security.

  • Perimeter Security

  • Terminal Security

  • Water Security

  • Container Screening

Perimeter Security

Ports and Harbours have extensive perimeters which are often in remote locations making them highly susceptible to intrusion.

A Westminster Perimeter Protection System in addition to any other security measures would greatly enhance any port security function however installing equipment on its own without adequate processes in place to monitor and maintain that perimeter will greatly lessen its effectivness.

With Westminster there is an opportunity to engage in a Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) or Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) scheme and work with a world leading security specialist on the provision, installation, maintenance and management of an effective perimeter security solution.

The growing requirement to keep up with the expanding security infrastructure is putting a big strain on harbour, and terminal operators, ​leading to a failure to properly secure these vital transport links.

Create World-Class Port Security  Operation without cost burden to the Port Authority

Engaging with Westminster on along-term concession agreement for the provision and maintenance of port security systems including detection surveillance and screening addresses three major issues:

  1. Importance of security to a ports economic success (risks to movement of passengers and goods and inward investment as a result of security issues)
  2. Constantly changing port security regulations and requirements from the international community and other bodies
  3. Removes the burden of future funding required for security upgrades, maintenance and renewal.
Water Security

The waterways surrounding a port or harbour are an easy target as they are often open to all incoming vessels.

Providing adequate security for these waterways can include multiple technologies and operations and bringing these together in a seamless security operation can pose its own challenges.

With Westminster there is an opportunity to engage in a Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) or Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) scheme and work with a world leading security specialist. Westminster will work with port operators and other stakeholders to ensure the waterways are fully secured at all times and that security operations are running at optimum performance by providing all the required investment, expertise, maintenance and training needed.

Container Screening

Effective container screening is an integral part of a port security function, an a vital means of ensuring customs receive the revenue they are due.

Container screening equipment is costly to install and needs to be properly run and maintained otherwise this important asset will quickly become useless.
