NEC to Build Telecommunications and Security Systems for Large-scale Oil Refinery in Kuwait

TOKYO, Aug 17, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) today announced its receipt of an order from JGC CORPORATION for the delivery of telecommunications and security systems for the Kuwait National Petroleum Company's large-scale Mina Al-Ahmadi Refinery, the construction of which JGC CORPORATION is involved in. The value of this order is approximately Yen1.3 billion, and NEC will commence delivery of the systems from December 2015.

The systems that NEC will provide to the Mina Al-Ahmadi Refinery consists of telecommunications systems, including VoIP phone and wired/wireless in-plant LAN systems, and security systems such as video surveillance, access management and emergency broadcast systems.

The construction of telecommunications and security systems for oil refinery plants requires industry-specific system design and construction know-how, such as the utilization of electronic devices to which explosion-proofing processes have been applied in order to reduce the risk of fires and explosions, and designs that physically isolate networks that handle highly confidential communications from regular telecommunications networks.

The NEC Group has an extensive track record and experience in constructing plant-oriented communications and security systems, including systems for large-scale oil plants in Saudi Arabia. NEC considers the receipt of this order to be a result of the high appraisal of its cutting-edge technological capabilities, in addition to its long track record of system building and operations.

Tan Boon Chin, Managing Director, Global Safety Division, NEC Corporation said, "We are pleased to be able to contribute to JGC's cutting-edge refinery project. NEC possesses some of the world's top-level image recognition and communication technologies, such as facial recognition, crowd behavior analysis, super-resolution technologies and Software Defined Networking (SDN). Moving forward, by working in collaboration with engineering companies, we'd like to propose solutions that integrate these technologies with plant-oriented systems in order to contribute to the even safer and more secure operation of important facilities such as refineries and power plants."
