Amphion Innovations plc Partner Company, AXCESS International,
Wins $3.5 million Port Infrastructure Award
London and New York, 27 February 2009 - Amphion Innovations plc (LSE: AMP) (“Amphion”), today announces that Axcess International, Inc., has won a competitive procurement worth $3.54 million to provide security infrastructure solutions for the port at Trinidad’s capital, Port-of-Spain.
Axcess is the leader in Micro-Wireless systems for automated identification, tracking, and sensing. The comprehensive system will include active RFID, multiple types of sensors and multiple types of scanners to improve daily security operations and will augment the security at the Port for modern day threats such as terrorism. In April, Trinidad hosts the Fifth Summit of the Americas Conference attended by over 30 heads of state of countries from North, Central and South America and the Caribbean.
The specific security solutions remain confidential. However, some of the augmented elements include wireless vehicle and visitor tracking; sensors for toxic chemicals, gases and radiation; and scanning for metal objects on personnel and in baggage. Axcess provided a similar solution for Barbados Port Inc. to improve its security beginning when it hosted the Cricket World Cup Games 2007.
Richard Morgan, CEO of Amphion said, “Security is of vital importance throughout the world. The selection of Axcess’ Micro-Wireless systems by the Port-of-Spain in Trinidad is another major milestone for the Company and underlines the strength and relevance of this innovative technology.”
