detection at the Ontario nuclear power plant
QUEBEC CITY, April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Optosecurity Inc.,
(http://www.optosecurity.com), a company developing breakthrough security
products that improve the performance of checkpoint X-ray screening systems,
today announced the sale of several units of its unique security system, the
OptoScreener, to Bruce Power Generating Station located in Ontario, Canada.
Optosecurity is already successfully deployed in security checkpoints in
multiple critical infrastructure sites in Canada and overseas and now includes
systems for the nuclear power industry. Bruce Power is proceeding with a
multi-unit order of the OptoScreener system, following a successful technology
trial at its own facility over several months.
According to Mr. Pat Shields, Security Program Manager at Bruce Power
Generating Station, "Bruce Power has always been proactive in seeking to
implement innovative security systems and adding capabilities beyond minimum
regulatory requirements. The OptoScreener threat detection capabilities, both
for weapons and dangerous liquids, are unique and address yet unsolved
critical security issues."
Mr. Eric Bergeron, President and CEO of Optosecurity, is excited about
having this new client from the nuclear industry. "We are very proud and
thankful to Bruce Power for their trust and initiative within the nuclear
industry," he said. "The endorsement of Optosecurity's product by such an
important member of the nuclear industry, a high profile and highly secure
environment, is a great indication of the common concern within the security
community about dangerous liquids. We look forward to working closely with
Bruce Power to ensure our system contributes to a higher level of security. We
are confident that our system will soon become a standard in checkpoint threat
detection in the nuclear industry as well as in other markets, including the
aviation security industry."
