Red CCTV provided an eco-friendly solution for Barhale on Thames Water’s New Trunk Main for Greenwich
If anything has become clear in the last few years, it’s the need for an eco-friendly change in every aspect of the world. On the backdrop of COP26, we’re proud to be leading the charge on eco-surveillance in our newest project with Barhale for Thames Water.
Civil engineering and infrastructure specialist Barhale was selected by Thames Water to install more than 4km of new trunk main in a £15m project to supply water to thousands of new homes in South-East London.
The path of the new main included Royal Greenwich Park, which posed a problem for surveillance due to the total lack of power available in the park to run effective CCTV.
Barhale chose Red CCTV’s HALO Scout, a Construction Awards finalist product, to solve this problem. The battery-powered CCTV tower has up to 70m detection distance, 4k monitoring, AI filtering and is the first of its kind to offer a livestream feed.
As it’s also solar-powered and carbon neutral to operate, implementing the HALO Scout solution helped Barhale and Thames Water reach their goals for a more environmentally sustainable construction site.
Steve Collet of Barhale said: “We wanted to be more environmentally friendly and this product really helped us with that because it’s solar-powered and was delivered in electric vehicles.
“The HALO Scout meant we could work towards this eco-friendly goal without compromising security on the site and so far it’s done just that.”
Greenwich is world famous for giving its name to the Meridian and Meantime and Red CCTV is proud to be part of the push to a net-zero future in this historic location.
