£28 million X-ray agreement for ADANI

Issue 2 2020 News

ADANI announced that it has been awarded, by the UK Ministry of Justice (MoJ), a £28 million multi-year framework agreement for the supply, installation and support of X-ray transmission body scanners for HM Prisons and other UK government organisations.

As has been widely published, the smuggling of items including mobile phones, drugs and other contraband items concealed within the body is a serious problem, especially into prisons. To address this problem the MoJ decided to procure and carry out a significant rollout of state-of-the-art X-ray Transmission Body Scanners and so has, over the last five months, conducted a very thorough and professional assessment of the different manufacturers of transmission body scanners, including performance evaluation tests.

Following the evaluation, the Ministry of Justice declared that ADANI offered the best product in terms of performance and price.

Jason Croft, commercial lead for the Ministry of Justice exercise, said: “The MoJ has spent a significant amount of time developing its requirements and understanding the technology and problems to meet its latest detection requirements and challenged the market to develop world leading image quality. As a result of our technical and commercial considerations, which included international performance and effectiveness testing, ADANI was awarded the framework”.
