OptaSense, part of the QinetiQ Group, has entered into a two year framework agreement in the Middle East to deliver enhanced security, using its Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) systems, on up to 8,000km of assets.
The framework agreement will see a major programme to install up to 200 OptaSense systems to protect oil & gas pipelines, refineries, airports and other critical national infrastructure sites. The contract follows the successful completion of previous work in the region to protect similar facilities.
OptaSense’s Managing Director, Magnus McEwen-King said: “The protection of critical national infrastructure, in particular oil & gas pipelines, is vital to assure revenue generation, especially in the Middle East. We are particularly pleased to be chosen to protect an entire regional asset base through a structured two year implementation programme. This framework agreement is an endorsement of OptaSense’s proven capability in delivering large scale projects reliably.”
