Protecting Substations with Ballistic Solutions

IMPLEMENTING A SOLUTION SUBSTATION SECURITY Assess, Implement, and Protect Helping Utility Companies Keep Assets Protected Substation equipment offered by suppliers is an investment worth your time and money. Baseline substation costs average at $2.4 million A costly, but effective and valuable investment needs protecting. Today's electric utility companies face demands of a changing industry, feeling the pressure to meet consumers needs and provide 24/7 security and reliability nationwide. What to implement Perimeter Fencing Designed and engineered to provide primary security to limit access to substation property. RISK ASSESSMENT Firewall/concrete fence wall Designed to stop fire before it can spread from transformer Power Outages to adjacent equipment. Department of Energy "Today's electricity system is 99.97% reliable, yet still allows for significant equipment damages and interruptions that cost Americans at least $150 billion each year - about $500 for every man, Transformer Ballistic Wall Custom designed, using ballistic panels, to limit line of site and protect transformers from projectiles. woman, and child." Equipment Ballistic Protection Substation Security Custom designed, using ballistic panels, to protect motor operators, and other critical assets from projectiles. Increased physical and electronic security measures can prevent or deter vandalism and/or intentional targeting of critical assets. THE FUTURE OF SUBSTATION PROTECTION FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) directs NERC to deliver mandatory standards for electric system physical security. NERC Reliability Standard adopted in May 2014. Recent Events: June In Arizona, a bomb was found next to a substation's diesel tank, 2014 the threat was averted. In Arizona, shooters were seen on the footage of a security camera, they dispersed before police could arrived on the scene. February 2014 Requirements Risk assessment by owners In California, snippers targeted 17 power transform- ers that funnel power to Silicon Valley. It took 27 days to bring the station back on line. April 2013 Threat evaluation against physical attack Develop and Implement security plan CIP-014-1
