Sheffield’s Synectics wins Saudi surveillance project


Synectics has won a £3.5m contract to supply specialist cameras and surveillance systems for a Saudi Arabian oil project.

The Zuluf development programme is located 40km off Saudi Arabia’s North East coast and features a new unmanned oil production wellhead, connected to a new central processing facility.

Synectics will provide its latest generation of camera stations to monitor the platform and “protect Saudi Armco’s employees and assets.”

The cameras have been designed for hazardous applications and can withstand operating temperatures up to 70 degree Celsius. They include thermal imaging and encoding technology.

“Synectics was selected for this project based on a proud legacy and outstanding reputation for delivering high-quality, field-proven solutions to the global oil and gas industry,” stated Darren Alder, Head of Oil & Gas at Synectics.

“Our ability and commitment to delivering the project scope to the required timescale was also a crucial factor in the contract award.”

The installation will be delivered by November and the facility is expected to be on-stream by the end of 2026

“Activity levels in the oil & gas market are now higher than we have seen for some years, and this large contract follows a number of smaller projects already received this year,” added Paul Webb, Chief Executive of Synectics.

“The dedicated team at our operations centre continues to work closely with our supply chain partners to ensure that we can meet the increased demand we anticipate in this market in the near future.”
