• Thales has been chosen to provide Qatar’s new commercial port with an integrated security solution.
• The overall solution is to be highly secured, resilient and, with an eye to future developments, easily upgradable.
• The contract illustrates the breadth of Thales’s capabilities as an integrator of complex security solutions for critical infrastructure.

Thales will deliver and install an integrated solution for the protection of the infrastructure and its environment, in addition to ensuring the operations of the New Port run safely.

A vital component of Qatar’s economic infrastructure, the New Port will comprise three container terminals with an eventual combined annual capacity in excess of six million containers per year. It will not only cater to the expected growth in container traffic, but will also accommodate general cargo traffic, offshore support, coast guard vessels, a marine support unit, imports of vehicles, livestock and bulk grain. In total, facilities at the New Port will stretch over 20km².

To secure the new commercial port, Thales is to provide a high technology integrated solution managed by a security command & control centre, including a perimeter intrusion detection system, a perimeter surveillance & lighting system, a redundant IT communication network, a redundant video storage system, an under vehicle surveillance system and a tetra communication system. The secured area will have a 19km perimeter.

The Thales port security command & control centre is to bring an integrated response to piracy, trafficking, smuggling and global threats of terrorism. Maintaining port security is of utmost importance and Thales will be providing a complete and real-time situational picture of the site.

Thales’s value proposition for the New Port is focusing on the capacity to integrate various kinds of sensors in a user-friendly Human-Machine Interface. The overall solution is to be highly secured, resilient and, with an eye to future developments, easily upgradable.

This contract marks the first time Thales will deploy its most cutting-edge technologies on such a large scale.

Marc Darmon, Executive Vice-President, Secure Communications and Information Systems,“We are very pleased to be appointed to design and implement the security solution of the New Port, an integral part of the ‘Qatar National Vision 2030’ strategy. With Thales’s architecture, the security solution will be interoperable, adaptable, resilient and future-proof. It will suit the needs of the operators and local authority alike, for tomorrow and the years to come”.

“The New Port, once complete, will be a world class facility. Partnerships like ours - with Thales and other local partners on the project - will allow collaboration in technology, technical expertise and other innovations. This will further boost Qatar’s infrastructure as well as having a positive impact on the overall economy.”

Mr. Maisar El Qutami Acting Project Executive Director, NPP

For more than 30 years, Thales has been a long-standing and trusted partner of Qatar.

The State of Qatar has awarded Thales a contract to secure the New Doha International Airport: Thales provided video surveillance system, access control system and IT communication Network. Thales is responsible for complete design and delivery of the integrated safety and security systems.

Qatar University and Thales signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for academic development, research and training of future Qatari professionals on new and emerging technological solutions in the field of information systems.
To reinforce this MoU, Qatar University teamed up with Thales to open a Cybersecurity Chair. Both parties will cooperate to provide research and consulting activities, develop tailored training programmes, and engage in Cyber and Computing Security-related activities.

The Qatar Science & Technology Foundation: in order to increase the ability to rapidly design, prototype and deliver innovation, Thales has invested in a position at the Qatar Science and Technology Park within the incubator development facilities. The added proximity to its leading client in Qatar will enable Thales to benefit from regular dialogue with this customer.
