Siemens has been selected by Port Manatee in Florida, US to incorporate its integrated access control and physical security information management (PSIM) system throughout the port.

The suite of solutions provided by Siemens will include the SiPass access control system and the Vantage PSIM solution for command and control purposes.

These solutions will enable Port Manatee to align with the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) system, mandated by the Maritime Transportation Security Act.

The system offerssecure credentials for all workers who needs access to secure areas of the port facilities.

Siemens engineered solutions cater to Port Manatee’s requirement of addressing the security needs as well as supporting the overall business needs which includes meeting TWIC guidelines and tighter control on visitors without credentials.

The SiPass acts as an access control solution to provide security ensuring ease-of-use without disrupting traffic flow at Port Manatee.

Suited for critical infrastructure, such as deepwater seaports, Siemens Vantage offers a single interface to manage access control and other systems including video surveillance and lighting.

Siemens engineers have worked with port officials, to develop workflows within Vantage and integrated systems critical to those processes, such as refrigeration systems for perishable items.

Port Manatee seaport security director David Pierre said: "The Siemens security solution has been very helpful in improving our compliance measures.

"Before, we had a hard time keeping track of people and cargo, while maintaining an audit trail.

"The Siemens system is built around compliance, so from the time people come in and tell us what they’re doing, we can track them."
