Dominion Resources Selects Symmetry15 June 2016
Symmetry helps Dominion meet critical government regulations.
Dominion Resources, Inc., one of the nation’s largest producers and transporters of energy selected AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Access Control System to secure its offices, plant and operations facilities in Virginia and several other states. AMAG Technology is a security solution provider specializing in access control, intrusion detection, video management, policy-based platform solutions and visitor management.
Dominion chose AMAG’s Symmetry access control system because it would help them meet North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) requirements. NERC CIP is the government standard for the nation’s bulk energy providers. NERC CIP protects critical infrastructure from the risk of physical and cyber attacks. Symmetry meets all NERC CIP requirements for physical access control.
“Symmetry, through a team of uniquely skilled integrators including Elite Contracting Group, Securadyne, and S3 Integration, delivers everything Dominion needs from a physical/electronic standpoint,” said AMAG Technology, Vice President of Government Solutions, Ryan Kaltenbaugh. “By controlling access in and around their operations, Dominion will meet its NERC CIP requirement and protect its critical infrastructure inside and out.”
Dominion is one of the largest producers of energy with a portfolio of about 24,300 megawatts of generation, 12,200 miles of natural gas transmission, gathering and storage pipeline, and 6,500 miles of electric transmission lines. Dominion serves utility and retail energy customers in 14 states. Symmetry will secure plants in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington DC and California.
