Renewable Energy Farms:
Due to the EU’s renewable energy goal, the UK needs to achieve a target of 15% renewable power by 2020. As a result, the development of wind and solar farms is on the increase. Renewable energy farms are usually located in remote rural areas, making them a prime target for theft and vandalism.
The preferred security solution is usually CCTV; however, this is rarely fully installed until the development of the site is complete and, even when it is, there’s always a risk of technical failure. Land developers also need to consider the fact that CCTV on its own is becoming less of a threat to potential intruders.
Protect your property
K9 Patrol Ltd can provide a variety of options to ensure farms remain secure when CCTV alone isn’t a viable option. Our Farm Watch scheme is a great way to get the local rural community involved; reducing the costs of providing security to your residential home or remote business.
How can K9 help?
We offer a number of different solutions for your rural security needs, including:
- Static dog handling teams
- Mobile dog patrols
- Rapid response to intrusion
A highly trained mobile response dog unit can carry out patrols to a number of farming properties throughout a neighbourhood. These mobile patrols will take place in a random order, so any opportunist intruders will be unable to detect a pattern and will not know when our security guards are likely to show up.
Because of the sheer size and remoteness of such sites, the additional skills and capabilities of a canine along with their trained handlers can often be the only sensible way forward. K9 Patrol Ltd has experience of working on a number of renewable energy farms, so we can advise accordingly on potential hotspots (most accessible entry points) and how to prevent perimeters being breached.
Along with the necessary signage, would-be intruders often avoid a site altogether when they become aware the site is protected by dog handling units, so the presence of our mobile patrols also acts as a strong deterrent.
In addition to making regular, yet random, patrols on your premises, we are also able to respond quickly if you are worried that someone may be on your land or property. Whether you want your livestock and machinery safeguarding, or would like the intruders and trespassers moved on from the area, call us on 01423 551526 and we’ll get someone out to you as quickly as possible.
Do you have a remote rural property or business? Are you worried about intruders and trespassers lurking about after dark?
One of the biggest concerns facing owners of rural businesses, such as agricultural farms and renewable energy farms, is the remote nature of the location. Whilst you have the space and seclusion that you require to carry out your business activities, your premises are often a prime target for intruders and burglars. Whether or not you reside onsite, it’s important to put measures in place to protect yourself and your assets.
