Zaun nuclear summit effort earns high Dutch police praise

folder_openHigh Security, Temporary Events

Zaun has earned high praise and an expression of thanks for its ‘outstanding job’ on security measures for the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) in The Hague from the commanding officer responsible for security at the summit.

Chief Superintendent EN Mooy of The Hague Police said Zaun ‘did an outstanding job in realising the fences and barriers’ for the NSS in March.

He wrote to Zaun: ‘During the construction and dismantling of fences and barriers, your employees made every effort to meet all kinds of wishes, demands and requirements. This resulted in an effective and outstanding product.’

And he added: ‘We experienced the cooperation as constructive and very pleasant. Many thanks for this.’

Zaun, working with Hardstaff and Highway Care, designed, manufactured, installed and decommissioned the temporary high-security cordon around the Nuclear Summit, which included 13 gates and almost 3km of fencing, much of it designed to mitigate the attack by hostile vehicles or protesting mobs.

Debates within the security cordon – 1.8km of its SecureGuard and 1.1km of its RDS Rapid Deployable System – focused on how to lock up the world’s nuclear materials more securely so they would not be so easy for terrorists to steal: a field again where Zaun has experience in securing the nuclear industry.

The British high-security fencing systems manufacturer has clearly enhanced its growing international reputation as the go-to company when world leaders gather and their protection needs to be guaranteed.

Last year Zaun provided the same service for the G8 Summit in Northern Ireland and the influential meeting of world leaders and the world’s commercial, political and financial powers at the Bilderberg conference at The Grove in Watford.

And in 2012 across the UK, Zaun installed 30km of fencing to secure the London 2012 Olympics, including VIP emergency gates at the Olympic Stadium which were dubbed the Obama Gates, in case of attack during the highest-profile and most sought-after events, such as Usain Bolt’s historic 100m gold medal triumph.
