Securing a hydroelectricity plant

CCTV Handbook 2015 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

ICE stands for Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad. It is the Costa Rican government-owned electricity and telecommunications services provider and generates annual revenues of around $1844 million. One of its biggest projects in Central America is undoubtedly the Proyecto Hidroeléctrico Reventazón, or the Reventazón Hydroelectric Project.

This project aims to construct a 305,5 MW hydropower plant in the Limon Province in Costa Rica, using waters from the Reventazóón River to generate an average of 1407 gigawatt-hour (GWh) of electricity per year. Once completed, the plant will represent approximately 10 per cent of Costa Rica’s total installed electricity generation capacity.

Approximately 3000 workers work over a wide area are involved in this project and demand for security is huge in order to provide a safe and secure ground for workers and for management to monitor project progress. For unparalleled flexibility and NVR features, the system integrator chose NUUO Mainconsole solutions for this particular site. “NUUO products are very easy to install and we have great success with the solutions they offer from NUUO,” said Steve Herra Villalobos, coordinator of the Department of Electronic Security.

NUUO Mainconsole is among one of NUUO’s best VMS solutions for enterprises. Stable, flexible, with easy integration options. NUUO Mainconsole is very easy to use and features special Tri-brid solution that incorporates both analogue and digital camera inputs along with a capture card for maximum compatibility benefits.

For a project as large as the hydroelectric endeavour it is paramount to have local and remote viewing functions available along with efficient management of cameras spread through a large surrounding area. NUUO Mainconsole, outfitted with multi-stream capability that efficiently adjusts streaming quality depending on viewing environments and connections speed, can ensure the best viewing experience under any environment.

NUUO Mainconsole also provides additional features that were crucial for the project requirements. Individual recording channel data retention function allowed the project managers to keep video data for up to 45 days, and is available by individual channels, thus allowing considerable hard disk savings.

Mainconsole also came with advanced video analytics with licence plate recognition for additional security benefits. Flexible, intelligent, powerful, these are the main benefits of NUUO Mainconsole. NUUO Mainconsole is the best choice when you have existing older analogue systems but want to upgrade to IP cameras. It provides seamless integration between older and newer types of cameras.
