Case Study

Port of Cork Company

AC2000 access control and security management system suited Port of Cork’s security requirements perfectly. The principal port on the south coast of Ireland uses the AC2000 system in conjunction with its chosen CCTV and intercom systems, offering the site a complete and fully integrated security management solution.

Port of Cork is Ireland’s premier trading port to continental Europe with ultra-modern facilities handling all modes of traffic such as crude and refined oils, containers, and ferry traffic. To secure the six sites that make up the Port of Cork, CEM AC2000 access control and security management system was installed. Ideal for the Port environment, AC2000 provides great flexibility and stability that satisfies the International Ship and Port Security code.

As a large port with facilities spread out over 15 kilometers, the Port of Cork clearly required remote monitoring. The AC2000 system provides the Port of Cork authorities with a central control point, with maximum coverage achieved across the facility using CEM intelligent IP card readers.

“AC2000 proved an ideal system to enable our port facilities to increase security conditions in response to the ISPS code introduced in 2004. AC2000 is responsible for access control at six port sites, securing the many buildings and cargo areas across the vast harbor estate,” said Captain Pat Murphy, alt. port facility security officer, Port of Cork Company.
