The 18th Asian Games kicked off on August 18, 2018 in Jakarta and Palembang, Indonesia. This is the second time that Indonesia has hosted the Asian Games in 56 years. Over 15,000 athletes from 45 countries participated in the Games. The Asian Games closed on September 2 in Jakarta. China won 289 medals, including 132 gold, 92 silver and 65 bronze, leading the medal count for the tenth time in a row in Asian Games history.
The Latest Vehicle Inspection Equipment Was Used at the Athletes Village
In order to guard the Asian Games and help make it a safe and joyful event for the Indonesian people and the rest of the world, NUCTECH as the security equipment supplier used the latest vehicle scanning equipment running 24 hours a day in inspecting logistics vehicles entering the Athletes Village. During the event, many Indonesian government officials came to site to observe these devices while they were running.
NUCTECH Provided Nearly 100 Sets of Security Inspection Equipment for All Venues
For the 18th Asian Games, NUCTECH provided nearly 100 sets of security inspection equipment which were installed in the office building of the Indonesia Asian Games 2018 Organizing Committee, the main venue in Jakarta, the Athletes Village, the main venue in Palembang and all other competition venues, so as to prevent potential threats.
Within less than two weeks from the date of official contract award to the opening of the Asian Games to prepare for the Games, NUCTECH brought the equipment to Indonesia in advance, and set up a team of nearly 30 members who worked round the clock in cooperation with local partners for equipment installation and commissioning. Finally, they made it! It only took the team five days to complete the installation and commissioning process of all devices, leaving a couple of days for the Indonesian client to conduct trial operation on site. It is fair to say that NUCTECH has accomplished a “mission impossible!”
NUCTECH deployed two technical service teams in two host cities to inspect the equipment installed at all venues to ensure that nothing could go wrong. With wonderful games going on a few steps away, NUCTECH engineers didn’t have time to watch them and all they did was working.
NUCTECH’s Security Equipment at the Airport Contributed to the Success of the Games
In addition to the equipment used at venues of the Asian Games, NUCTECH’s security equipment was kept operating 24 hours a day at the Soekarno–Hatta International Airport, the largest airport in Jakarta, when the host city welcomed delegations of all participating countries, athletes and tourists. By helping make the Games a safe event, NUCTECH was demonstrating its love to Indonesia.
Over the past ten-plus years, NUCTECH has provided integrated security inspection solutions and services for large-scale events, including the Olympic Games, the Asian Games and the Southeast Asian Games.
