Port to Purchase Intrusion Barriers

Tuesday, June 20, 2006
Tampa Bay Business Journal has reported that the Tampa Port Authority has received a $1.3 million grant from the Department of Homeland Security that will be used to purchase floating small craft intrusion barriers to protect security zones around critical infrastructure. Skip Volkle, legal counsel at shipper Maritrans, raised concerns about the barriers at Tuesday's board meeting, saying that no discussion had taken place with the Harbor Safety Committee.

Wainio said the Port of Tampa would meet with the Harbor Safety Committee but that the impact of the devices to the maritime community was going to be minimal. At the close of the submittal period, one bid had been received from Siemens Building Technologies & Wave Dispersion Technologies Inc. Maritrans' Volkle said he was satisfied at the end of the meeting. Source: Tampa Bay Business Journal
