The project was located in Finland, a country at the leading edge of smart grid evolution. SafeGRID is an integrated solution incorporating smart sensing, analytics, connectivity, cyber-security and collaboration, providing greater safety and security and optimized asset maintenance for distribution and transmission grids. The unique integration of these elements improves situational awareness, helping electrical grid operators to manage threats and risks before they emerge. SafeGRID incorporates intelligent sensors, combined with advanced analytics that deliver real-time data and asset visibility in a unified manner to security, operations and maintenance staff. Ultimately, it enables electricity grid operators to predict, visualize and manage complex environments to deliver protection of people, assets, infrastructure, data and processes, as well as lowering the costs of maintenance and operations.

"Safe city solutions bring improved safety and efficiency to a city and increase the well-being of the people who live and work in them and those who visit them, helping to attract and retain businesses and commerce," said Mati Kochavi, Founder and main page CEO of AGT International. "The growth of the Russian and CIS markets and the increase in the sophistication of threats to citizens and corporations make clear the need to bring the latest, most innovative safety and security solutions to this region. I am delighted that we have the opportunity to showcase this technology at ISSE and in the Skolkovo project." During ISSE, Ilia Rosenberg, Chief Technologist of AGT International's Global Delivery Organization, will speak at the congress on safety in the Russian energy and fuel industry. Highlighting AGT International's oil and gas solution, he will discuss how technology can be used to successfully protect onshore, offshore and coastal assets and infrastructure from a wide-range of internal and external threats. "Traditional, reactive approaches to safety and security in this sector are proving inadequate in the face of increasingly sophisticated threats," Ilia Rosenberg said. "We believe that the way forward is solutions that gather, fuse and analyze data from multiple sources, including integrated sensors, customer databases and the web, in order to help our customers detect, prepare for and manage security breaches and risks; ensure proper handling of liquefied natural gas and hazardous materials; and transport cargo safely across long-distance, cross-country routes. This is exactly what we have done while planning, developing and implementing the largest and most sophisticated oil and gas project in the world, across a diversity of challenging terrain." Notes to editors Safe City Analysts Frost & Sullivan recently highlighted AGT International as leaders in the field in C31, Analytics and Integration and as Services and Systems Integrators and highlighted that the organization has "deployed one of the world's largest and leading edge safe city projects and innovated urban management solutions worldwide." (Frost & Sullivan Global Safe Cities Market Assessment, March 2012). Oil and gas AGT International's biggest oil and gas solution covers more than 30 onshore, coastal and offshore facilities and comprises thousands of sensors, including radars, LR-EO, cameras, access control and hundreds of kilometers of smart fences across a diversity of challenging terrain and environmental conditions.
