									        CANARY WHARF BRINGS IN SIEMENS TO MAINTAIN ITS SECURITY
                                           SYSTEMS


18th March 2008


Siemens Building Technologies, Security Systems, has been awarded a contract to maintain all
the electronic security equipment across London landmark, the Canary Wharf estate.


The deal follows a tough competitive tender and will see Siemens take responsibility for the
security equipment of all Canary Wharf-managed buildings and infrastructure within the 97 acre
site.


Siemens is to put in a team of on-the-ground engineers who will manage a multi-faceted security
system that includes CCTV, vehicle scanning, road blockers, barriers, vehicle plate recognition
(ANPR), explosive particle detection and a range of other associated devices.


Canary Wharf and its landmark office buildings are a symbol of London’s success, with over 30
buildings occupied predominantly by financial service organisations and more than 200 shops,
bars and restaurants. There are ambitious plans for continued development of the area.


Siemens Building Technologies, Security Systems managing director Peter Hawksworth says:
“This is a prestigious contract to have won against intense competition. Canary Wharf continues
to develop and expand and we will provide both immediate on-the-ground technical support as
well as a continuous upgrade path that will bring in the latest technological developments. All our
work will ensure that the area continues to have at its disposal some of the most sophisticated hi
tech security capabilities in the UK.”


Canary Wharf Management security technical manager Mike Walker says: “For such a high
profile business base as Canary Wharf we need the very best security systems in place. We
spent considerable time talking to suppliers and were won over by Siemens’ professionalism and
commitment to what is an extremely demanding list of requirements.”
