Our Floating Security Barrier designed and build for protection from a big or small or fast marine vessel. Our Floating Barrier is an ideal solution for all kind of marine places which need security. Mavi Deniz offers Floating Physical Barrier solution to prevent threats from the sea. The project is developed to be shaped by customer demands, to include flexible and cost-efficient solutions, and to avert terrorist attacks, especially of high-speed boats.
The Need: After the terrorist attack, the Navy ordered the marine floating security barrier to establishing a defense perimeter at naval bases worldwide.
What WeDid:: The Harbor Offshore Barriers team installed and continues to maintain Navy barrier systems in continental Turkey, Guam, Hawaii, Japan, Iraq, Pakistan, Italy, and Spain. The Navy consistently rates Harbor Offshore Barriers performance as Excellent or Very Good, resulting in an award bonus for 95% of 26 task orders from 2003 to 2015.
LNG, Oil Production and Transportation Facilities
The Need: Offshore and coastal oil and gas facilities require significant construction and operational investment. Protecting these assets from malicious and destructive attacks by installing a marine floating security barrier demonstrates to investors and insurers that the operating owner is a credible business directly addressing high risks to operational stability. Technology driving the expansion of floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) and floating, storage, and regasification units (FSRU) alone increases the demand for meeting the highest marine floating security standards.
What We Did: Harbor Offshore Barriers specialists are using high-performance computer modeling to examine barrier reliability and efficiencies under simulated conditions to design an offshore system. These include sea and weather conditions, water depths, and wave action to replicate “real-world” engineering requirements.
Ports and Marinas
The Need: Port operations, whether for containerized, bulk, or break-bulk cargo, cruise ships, fishing vessels, and pleasure boats, by and large, take place in urban areas of the world’s cities. The threats of sabotage, theft, smuggling, and fatal explosions need to be deterred by a visible floating fence to keep out intruders while allowing vessel traffic operations to proceed as scheduled.
What We Did: While patrol vessels rapidly move to an area under threat, Harbor Offshore Barriers’ maritime floating security systems are demarcation barriers beyond which no one should pass. They provide that extra measure of security to deter even the idea of attacking a vessel in port or traffic channel while complementing marine patrols.
Nuclear Power Plants
The Need: Government agencies are requiring on-lake nuclear power plant owners to install underwater barriers to prevent access to intake pipes.
What We Did: Harbor Offshore Barriers’ site visit team determined that the lake bottom and environmental conditions required a customized 152 m structure. The system included a single 30.5 m bridge span unit and a gate. The client found that we were the only company that could meet the requirements for their nuclear power plant.
The Need: The government has found that it is in the public’s interest to protect dams from domestic and foreign terrorist attacks. An attack would cause massive flooding, loss of life and property and destroy hydroelectric power facilities.
What We Did: The Bureau of Reclamation engaged Harbor Offshore Barriers to install waterside barrier systems for several dams and waterways. Our project manager successfully designed and executed a logistics strategy for transporting large components and equipment to remote locations.
For the coastal states, maritime power is mostly a requirement of defense policy; however, in today’s global world, no economy can survive without support of international trade, and as for the centuries, also today, sea transport constitutes the major network in trade; hence protection of these routes and bases and harbors in the main stops gains priority for all states. Therefore, within the scope of security strategies shaped with “a better and safer world” slogan, the first recurred thing becomes terrorism, and preventing this threat increases in importance for sea security and in this context, for base-harbor defense.
