Tenesol, a SunPower company set up two new solar farms in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa in 2012. The two ground-mounted solar power projects add up to 33 megawatts (MW) in capacity. To protect its valuable solar panel assets against unwanted intruders, Tenesol called upon security specialist TeleEye, which relies on thermal imaging technology for surveillance applications.
Solar power plants are unmanned sites and require real-time monitoring day and night in order to efficiently deter unwanted intruders and prevent vandalism or terrorist attacks. TeleEye South Africa, a division of Hong Kong based company TeleEye, has many years of experience in securing public utilities sites with their solutions enabling 24/7 standalone and remote operation with real-time monitoring and recording. TeleEye has been a strategic distributor of FLIR thermal cameras since 2010.
