Westminster International announces that it has received a $2.72 million USD extension contract from the Government of Southern Sudan (“GOSS”) for additional security at Juba International Airport, Southern Sudan.
The contract is an extension of the $4.7m contract Westminster was awarded in 2008 to secure Juba International Airport and which has been an ongoing project during 2009. The extension contract relates to additional security fencing and perimeter detection systems together with Under Vehicle Surveillance Systems (UVSS), Automatic Number Plate Recognition systems (ANPR) & Vehicle Control Barriers on entranceways, additional CCTV Surveillance and Solar Powered Street Lighting around car parks.
Commenting on the contract award Peter Fowler, Chief Executive of Westminster Group, said:
"I am delighted to be able to announce this latest contract award for Juba which underpins our faith in GOSS and their determination to rebuild the country after the 21-year civil war with the North as well as showing their belief in Westminster’s ability and professionalism in supporting the reconstruction process during a difficult period.
"I am also pleased that we are able to introduce solar powered street lighting to Juba. I am sure the benefits of having no power infrastructure requirements, near zero running costs and environmentally-efficient operation will lead to the expansion of this technology to the rest of the capital in due course."
