Australian Prison Security To Get Saab's Electronic Surveillance System

Saab has won two contracts to provide the electronic security system for what will be Australia’s largest correctional facility.

Early works began earlier this month and construction will be completed over a three year period, subject to planning approval, the company announced Thursday.

The prison will be located near the north-eastern New South Wales city of Grafton. It will include maximum security beds for up to 1,000 male and 300 female inmates, and minimum security beds for 400 males.

The contracts are for the electronic security system’s installation and maintenance. They are one component of a broader facility design, construction, operate and maintain tender won by the Northern Pathways consortium, which includes John Holland, Serco, John Laing and Macquarie Capital.
