Security and safety communications within a Saudi Arabian industrial super-city are being coordinated through a newly-commissioned pair of dedicated control rooms equipped with Zetron’s Acom Advanced Communication System.

Sandwiched between the desert and the Persian Gulf, Jubail is the largest industrial complex of its kind in the world, with a huge range of companies right across the petrochemical and energy intensive sectors. It also has a commercial port and a separate Royal Saudi Naval Base.

At the same time the city is home to tens of thousands of skilled workers and support staff who, apart from having work close by, also benefit from world-class healthcare, leisure and entertainment facilities. Keeping this vibrant community safe and secure is the task of an autonomous government organisation, the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu.

With Jubail continuing to expand, the Royal Commission decided to concentrate communications for safety and security in two new control centres. The Royal Commission chose Zetron’s Acom for the heart of both facilities because of its proven ability to give operators touch-screen control over a complex mix of telephone and radio communications.

Acom is widely used in public safety and security across the globe, as well as transportation, power generation, oil & gas production and medical sectors. It is a state-of-the-art, digital switching and multiplexing communications system built for mission-critical applications. Acom’s screens display multiple radio and telephone, data, paging and video channels, enabling operators to swiftly make informed decisions and get the right teams and individuals talking.

Ghouse Mohideen of Industrial Material & Services Co. (Inma) and Zetron’s partner at Jubail says the bid was won on technical merit backed up by Zetron’s strong track record in Saudi Arabia. “The evaluation team was able to visit the Royal Commission Hospital in Jubail where a smaller Zetron system was already operational. It gave them the extra confidence to choose our bid. We carried out the installation and integration, and then managed training for the Royal Commission operators jointly with Zetron.”

Sulaiman Q Al-Quurtas, section manager of telecommunications for the Royal Commission, says the Zetron system meets every requirement. “It was installed on time, does everything we require now and gives us the ability to introduce new technologies in the future. It was satisfying for us to see Zetron and Inma partnering so closely and effectively. Together they have delivered a quality result that helps us keep the people and companies of Jubail safe and secure.”
