Securing Net Zero

Front-of-House/Security, Industrial, United Kingdom

A security system at one of global ferrous scrap recycling leader, EMR Group's UK sites, is helping the company towards its zero waste goal.

 

Supplied by Axis Communications, the end-to-end security installation comprises network cameras, access control and IP audio products integrated with a hosted software application to facilitate close monitoring of the premises and all onsite operations.

 

Explaining the link between security and his company's net zero waste target, EMR UK's head of security, Roger Hewitt, says: "We needed a better monitoring status of the site’s security but also, and equally important, greater visibility of every stage of the recycling process.

 

"Axis cameras mounted on our weigh bridge, for example, can assist in the calculation of loads. Thermal imaging cameras can monitor for excess heat, not just inside the machinery, but also within the piles of metal and material that we have on site, notifying operators if rising temperatures are detected. The image quality of the cameras is excellent and allow us to monitor our entire operation while also ensuring the highest levels of safety."

 

A range of cameras are deployed at the site including dome cameras and the AXIS Q2901-E Temperature Alarm Camera which detects heat for the purpose of identifying fire risk.

 

Nick Platt-Higgins, AXIS UK key account describes the solution as one of the "most all-encompassing" the company has designed and installed to date, before adding: "It really provides a real world opportunity to see a significant number of Axis technologies out in the field, using cloud connectivity to provide a comprehensive overview of EMR’s entire operations at this site."
