Most of the nation’s electrical substations are in remote locations, making them difficult to secure from theft and vandalism. Without a smart security system, utility sites are susceptible to costly downtime.
Utility Site & Substation Security
Protecting public utilities goes beyond the security at an individual site; it’s a matter of public safety. Reliable security and 24/7 monitoring are critical for utility substations and other sites. These are key subsets of our country’s critical infrastructure and require specific security needs to keep them safe, especially because most are in remote places and left unprotected.
Utility sites need constant surveillance to ensure they stay operational without any interruption in services. Theft of materials and vandalism not only require replacement and repairs, but also result in costly downtime of services to your customers. Many utility sites or substations lack the infrastructure needed to support most security surveillance systems, and on-site security guards are costly and often ineffective.
Twenty20 Solutions offers a variety of security options that do not require power or connectivity. Whether you need a mobile or fixed solution, Twenty20 is your go-to resource for surveillance systems that will help safeguard your sites against costly losses and incidents while keeping you apprised of all on-site activity.
How to Secure Oil & Gas Sites
Securing construction job sites can be challenging, especially if your site is in the early stage of construction. Even if your site does not have access to electricity, wi-fi, or any place to store tools and equipment, Twenty20 Solutions leverages leading-edge technology to provide a variety of innovative security options that do not require power or connectivity while giving unprecedented visibility to your sites.
On-site security guards are costly, provide limited effectiveness and cannot secure all areas of a site at one time. Construction site security cameras and surveillance is the best option to keep your property safe even when no one is on site. A construction security system will help safeguard your site against costly losses and incidents while keeping you apprised of all activity while workers are on site and during off hours
Benefits of Video Surveillance & Monitoring on Oilfield Sites
View Sites Remotely
Twenty20 Solutions provides real-time access and visibility to what is happening on your site via our web-based platform. Available from any location and device, you can see your sites in real time or access events to keep track of activity, even when you are not on site. You can monitor your workers, site progress and after-hour activity online any time.
Many construction sites are only secured with temporary fencing, which makes them prime targets for criminals. With security solutions from Twenty20, you can stop crime before it happens with real-time visibility to your sites from any location.
Secure Tools and Materials
You can’t pack up your site every night, so any exposed equipment or tools become prime targets for thieves once you end your day. With video surveillance security from Twenty20, you can keep your assets in sight any time you are away via our web-based platform. For added protection, our Manned Monitoring Center (MMC) can monitor your sites 24/7 or during off-hours to provide added bandwidth to your security efforts.
Injuries can be commonplace on construction sites due to worker negligence and accidents. Twenty20 Solutions can provide Time-Lapse Surveillance for your sites that not only show historical progress, but allow you to pinpoint specific on-site activity that can help with worker’s comp and liability claims.
Crime and vandalism can cause work delays for your crew. Only 10-15% of stolen construction equipment is recovered by authorities. Damaged or stolen equipment and materials will push your timelines back and increase your expenses. Your best option to avoid these costly delays is to stop criminals before they strike with proactive security and site surveillance.

Featured Case Study
Construction companies rarely have extra time to plan before starting a project. Once they win a job, their work typically starts within a few weeks. That was case time and time again for one engineering and construction company. They needed mobile security systems that could be delivered at a moment’s notice, and their previous security provider was not able to provide skid-mounted security solutions quickly enough to meet project timelines.
