Marine terminal operator DP World engaged CHQ Security Services to act as security and risk assessment consultants for the operation of the UK's major deep-sea container port – London Gateway.

CHQ Security Services are acting as security and risk assessment consultants to the project in order to assist DP World in meeting and exceeding the requirements of the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS), the maritime sector’s response to 9/11.

The consultancy’s remit has been to ensure that London Gateway benefits from best-of- breed security and safety solutions and that these are combined to optimise performance of the port and facilitate the work of the Home Office UK Border Agency.
 
CHQ say they have advised on and implemented equipment across CCTV, perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), access control and wide-area surveillance

A crucial aspect of security at London Gateway has been creation of an ISPS demarcation line within which client and third parties conduct crucial operational activity such as safety & welfare and security reviews. (The ISPS code demands that operators must define a perimeter and have a declared method of monitoring it.)

Mark Rogers is Director of Global Security at DP World. He said:  “At tender stage, CHQ Security Services showed a clear grasp of the project and an understanding of what DP World wanted to achieve. Safety, security and a carbon-efficient agenda are uppermost for us but any port will also strive for optimum productivity, something that we owe our clients. CHQ have helped us to achieve balance.”
