The first four months of 2017 have been extremely busy for all partners across the UK, Ireland and West Africa. Lordson’s team at visisure have completed an exceptional project which I thought was worth sharing with everyone:
Lordson, tell us more about this exceptional project!
In the first part of this year we completed the Takoradi International project which is our largest, single location installation to date. Takoradi International is a Thermal Power Station based in Aboadze, a town in the Western region of Ghana. The company employs around 400 staff working 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
How did the client hear about timeware®?
By referral. We were introduced by a consultant who had previously worked with visisure on one of our Banking projects.
Please tell me about the size of the business and the solution they required?
Opened in 1997, Takoradi International is the largest Thermal Power Station in Ghana and generates a total of 550 MW via four gas turbines and a steam turbine. The client was looking for a biometric attendance and access control solution along with car-park barriers and HGV gates.
How long did the project take to complete?
Phase one of the project was completed in approximately four weeks. This included 10 access control terminals, fire alarm monitors and five attendance terminals. All biometric enrolment was completed by the field technicians as recommended by timeware® (UK). Phase two is midway and will see the number of access doors rise to 25. Phase 3 is due to start in July and will include a one ton rolling HGV gate and car park barriers that are also being installed by visisure.
What was the most challenging part of the project?
The civil engineering work and completing phase one within strict time constraints.
Thanks for the update Lordson.
