Dead Sea Industries

Dead Sea Industries (AICL Group) – project assessment 

Subject: Safety and security system at the Dead Sea Industries 

Starting date: 2013

Ending date: 2015

Location: Dead Sea Industries in Sodom 

Project: Peripheral and physical protection and a comprehensive Outdoor system. 

Project manager: Mr. Yakir Weitzman 

Sector: chemical and petrochemical industrial plants. 

Client: Dead Sea Industries. 

Financial volume: approximately NIS 17 million. 

Project description:

Installing safety and security systems at the Dead Sea Industries in Sodom. 

The project included specified planning and approval by the authorized bodies and Israel Police acting as a guiding body. 

Under the project, civil-engineering works were conducted, which included the establishment of concrete infrastructures for the security fences at the plant’s parameters (about 7 kilometers), on which electronic fences were installed for identification and warning purposes, the installation and planning of pillars fitted with thermal cameras in the parameters of the fence, including a VMD system. Furthermore, surveillance thermal cameras at a distance of 1000m were installed on 16m-high pillars. The entire infrastructures for the cameras and the communication mechanism were linked in communication cabinets for outdoor conditions that are suitable to the tough conditions that prevail at the petrochemical plants in the Dead Sea. 

The identification and warning structure with cameras is being supervised from the control room established at the Dead Sea Industries, including a screen room displaying the cameras’ capacity, as well as control and command system and digital-recording screens. Under the project, an arrangement of gates and pneumatic barriers was established on all the gates of the plant (15 locations in total). 

Orad Security Systems has protected under the project the power plant area for electricity production by means of green gas established on the plant’s grounds. 

In early 2015, Orad started protecting the Dead Sea Industries by way of an entrance-point supervision system manufactured by Nedap.

Implementation works span day and night, which required a pinpointed coordination for operating the systems with the plants’ relevant bodies.

Case Studies – Border

Customer: Ministry of Defense

Project: Israel Security Fence

Sector: Military

Project Description: Develop a video analytic based security fence for borders and military bases. Security electronic fences.

Each Border protection concept combines mechanical protection and electronic surveillance. Superior video analysis systems and most advanced intrusion detection technologies are integrated under central command and control room to insure optimal security solution.

Surveillance Requirements:

* Operation 24/7 in all weather and lighting conditions                                                                                                        

* Combination capability of detection and investigation

* Constant monitoring – Low revisit time


* High Sensitivity – For variety of targets

* Multiple Target Tracking

* Low false alarm rate

* No man in the loop until detection

Borders: Our concept for Perimeter Protection Solutions

Internal Coverage:

A combination of electronic fence and an array of cameras (long range, night vision or PTZ).

Internal & External Coverage:

Various types of sensors and cameras along the perimeter, creating a virtual screen to detect any sort of intruder.

Internal & Long Range Coverage:

This solution is radar based for detecting threats at a distance, combined with extra-long-range cameras for identifying intruders.

The solutions can be combined to offer a complete security package, with superior results.


Internal Coverage


Internal & Long Range Coverage


Improved Electronic Fence

Basic fence improved by electronic detectors enabling detecting crossing or sabotaging the fence.

Virtual Fence

Surveillance zone which is made possible by short range cameras along the line and video analytic capability

Long Distance day\night all weather detection and observation

A combination between a radar for target detection and location and advanced observation system for target identification and assessment.

Underground Seismic Detection System

The Ground Cell Seismic System incorporates innovative technology that delivers data fusion capabilities, significantly differentiating the system from current technologies available in the market. This "state of the art" system is highly reliable due to its sophisticated algorithms that provide it with unique ability to filter nuisance alarms on several processing level.

The system creates an invisible buffer zone around the protected perimeter, allowing for real time detection of any hostile activities. The system's detection capabilities extend above and below the ground, and include a wide range of events such as walking, crawling and digging. Several layers of processing provide complete detection and literally no further action is needed.


Weather Proof: Sensors are resistant to temperature changes, humidity, snow and wind

Detection Resolution: +/- 10 meters

Full Control of the system features from remote center

Very low infrastructure expenses

Low System Power – Use inexpensive cabling solutions
