Cercar Energy is a leading manufacturer of solar panels and non-conventional renewable energy sources. Their experience in the construction of solar solutions for remote areas has positioned them to become one of the main providers for renewable energy across Colombia.
To protect their brand-new logistics headquarters, Cercar Energy required a comprehensive security solution that would prevent intruders, simplify access, and, most importantly, keep their team of 40 staff and contractors safe.
The Gallagher solution
For complete protection of their site, Cercar Energy opted to install a fully integrated access control, perimeter, and intrusion detection solution to deliver secure site management and simplify operations. Gallagher’s Command Centre software platform was installed, along with Gallagher T20 and T15 readers for access control and a Monitored Pulse Fence system for perimeter protection.
Mobile credentials are also widely used on site for access control purposes. Utilizing Gallagher’s Mobile Connect App staff are provided with a highly secure access credential that is convenient and able to be assigned remotely.
In what is a first for Gallagher’s security solutions in the Americas, Cercar Energy’s entire perimeter fence installation, access control, and intrusion protection is run from solar energy.
“The flexibility of Gallagher’s security solutions made the installation process a seamless one. The fact we can run our entire security system via solar energy is fantastic and from our perspective, it’s truly the way of the future.”
The business value
“The flexibility of Gallagher’s security solutions made the installation process a seamless one. The fact we can run our entire security system via solar energy is fantastic and from our perspective, it’s truly the way of the future,” says Hernan Charris, General Manager for Cercar Energy.
“Our Gallagher solution not only benefits us economically, but also functionally. By having all three components of access control, perimeter, and intrusion detection in a single management platform, along with the ability to integrate with video for greater site efficiency, is simply fantastic.”
