DSIT Solutions Ltd., a subsidiary of Acorn Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACFN) said that it has received an order for its underwater security system to protect a European nuclear power facility.
The system is expected to be installed on site before the end of 2014.
Dan Ben-Dov, DSIT´s vice president for sales and marketing said, “After establishing itself as the world´s provider of underwater security systems for the oil and gas industry, DSIT is extending its product offering to the Nuclear Power sector.”
Nuclear Power Facilities are especially vulnerable to underwater intrusion and sabotage since most of them have water intakes as part of the nuclear reactor cooling systems. Using such a water-based cooling system, illicit infiltrators may try to swim concealed underwater into the very heart of the protected nuclear power site.
