Port of Corpus Christi Selects Adesta

Monday, December 01, 2003
Adesta, a multi-discipline infrastructure service provider and integrator, has announced that it has been awarded a $1.8 million contract to provide and integrate physical security, access control, and new intrusion detection systems for the Port of Corpus Christi (POCC), the nation's sixth largest port. More than $92.3 million in grants were given to 51 ports located throughout the nation. "The Port of Corpus Christi Authority is very pleased to have chosen Adesta to assist in securing the harbor," said Luther Kim, chief of port security for the Port of Corpus Christi. "We were impressed with Adesta's professionalism and ability to adapt proven solutions to the challenges posed by the unique characteristics of the Port of Corpus Christi. We look forward to forging a strong partnership with them as we secure the vital interests of the Port." "Adesta's experience with securing major ports and dams at U.S. Government facilities worldwide demonstrates our ability and past successes securing critical waterways," said Bob Sommerfeld, President of Adesta, LLC. "This track record will be beneficial to the Port of Corpus Christi, given its strategic seaport military significance. We look forward to securing the Port of Corpus Christi, one of South Texas' greatest assets." The Port of Corpus Christi received a $2.27 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Congress provided funding for the grant program to the newly created Transportation Security Administration (TSA), now responsible for security. The funds will be used, in part, for a number of security improvements including surveillance cameras for the Inner Harbor waterway; fiber optic links; high intensity security lighting, a Security Control Center and intrusion / motion sensors at designated strategic locations through-out the Inner Harbor.
