Critical Security in Challenging Settings
Oil and gas projects, from onshore refineries, plants and pipelines to offshore marine vessels and platforms, are some of the most demanding environments on the planet. Harsh weather, extreme temperatures, remote locations, no or poor light conditions, hazardous and technical processes, significant personnel counts – they are all factors that make safety and security both difficult and essential.
This complex matrix of conditions means surveillance has to step up. Robust and reliable cameras have to deliver evidential image quality at all times, while integrated solutions are relied on to make data from multiple site sub-systems manageable, meaningful and actionable in mission critical situations.
This is what we do, and why our experts and solutions have been selected by some of the most high profile projects in this sector for over 30 years.
High Quality Image Capture in All Conditions
Synectics’ COEX™ brand - which pioneered the first Ex certified thermal camera station - features safe area, marine and hazardous area camera stations that can be found protecting some of the world’s largest oil and gas projects.
Our camera solutions are designed and developed to meet specific sector needs. Multi-spectral camera stations that switch between colour, mono and thermal imaging for conditions where weather, light and overall visibility fluctuate rapidly. HD IP camera stations with in-built compression delivering 1080p video, whether the application is an ice-class LNG tanker operating at -55°C, or a Middle East pipeline in +70°C heat.
Whether the challenge is location, temperature, corrosion, threat detection or motion, our internationally certified camera stations - developed through decades of field-experience – ensure picture quality is always guaranteed.
Integration that Protects People, Processes and Assets
Image quality is vital but it is only part of the protection equation. With Synergy 3 as the core command and control platform, we develop and deploy factory tested, highly scalable, integrated solutions that streamline and simplify threat detection by unifying data from sub-systems vital to oil, gas and marine operations.
The result is rapid, informed decision making where and when it matters most.
Our solutions ensure that any potentially significant event originating from any source - such as an anomalous gas or flare stack composition reading, access control/perimeter fence alert, deviation from tanker loading protocols, fire/smoke detection, or man-down notification - is identified quickly, analyzed, and presented in context to operators via interactive workflows to guide appropriate response.

Protecting Passengers and Assets
Transport hubs serve numerous businesses, employ hundreds of staff and process tens of thousands of passengers every day. They are critical to our infrastructure and as such require surveillance solutions capable of distilling data from a wide variety of sources to deliver an instant, clear and actionable view of activity across the whole site.
The transport assets that use these hubs - buses, trams, trains and light rail - also have a unique requirement portfolio. Here, on-vehicle technology that guarantees evidential quality image capture and reliable data storage is a must, to enhance passenger safety, safeguard against costly insurance claims and aid vehicle/driver performance.
Synectics is experienced in designing and delivering proven surveillance solutions for transport infrastructure and mobile assets, which is why our technology can be found protecting airports, ports, ships, rail networks and bus fleets throughout the world.
Understanding Need, Tailoring Solutions
Transport operators need to keep sites and assets secure and operations efficient, all within a framework of regulatory compliance. Their core mission and greatest challenge, however, is to ensure the safety and customer satisfaction of the people they are transporting.
We have built our proposition on the foundation of deep sector knowledge and a well-honed understanding of these challenges. Working collaboratively with our customers to garner a 360 degree view of a project is at the heart of our approach and guides the tailored solutions we provide.
Synergy 3, our command and control platform, embodies this approach.
