Security company wins Far East deal

One of China's top airports is to install a security system manufactured by a Belfast-based hi-tech company.

CEM Systems, part of international firm Tyco Security Products, won the contract to supply its CEM AC2000 security management system to Changsha Huanghua International Airport, the largest airport in China's Hunan Province.

The company, which is headquartered at Airport Road West, said Tyco in China would install the fully integrated IP security solution for access control, biometrics and CCTV monitoring as part of the airport's security.

"The industry-leading CEM AC2000 system has been used to secure airports around the world for over 20 years," said Andrew Fulton, business development director for CEM products. "CEM understands the dynamics of airports and has an advanced range of hardware products that are ideal for airport security."

Handling approximately 11 million passengers in 2009, Changsha Huanghua Airport is one of the top 20 busiest airports in China. As part of a $270m expansion plan, Changsha Huanghua airport has enhanced airport facilities and required a high security solution to secure passengers and enhance airport operations.

"We recommended the CEM AC2000 security system to Changsha Huanghua airport as it features the very latest in IP technology," said Amy Lee, account manager for Tyco Fire & Security in Guangzhou, China.
