Security Project: X-Ray Scanners in the Border-crossings
Nuctech Company Ltd., a subsidiary of Tongfang Group and Tsinghua University in China, has been developing High Energy X-Ray inspection system for containers and trucks.
Following the terrorist attack in Ashdod in 2004, in which several terrorists hid in a container and caused the death of 10 Israeli workers, at the request of the Israeli Ministry of Defense, Comodan imported the first High-Energy X-RAY Mobile Scanner System from Nuctech to the port of Ashdod.
Nuctech, together with a US company, then won another tender published by the Israeli Ministry of Defense, to supply five X-Ray systems, including the infrastructure works for Karni border crossing. The project was funded by the US Aid for supporting the Palestinians.
Nuctech later won another project for supplying X-Ray Systems to Kerem Shalom, Shaar Efraim, Gilboa and Tarqumia. The tender was issued by the UN and financed by the European Union.
In 2021, Nuctech installed a high-energy inspection system for the Israel Customs Authority in the Jordan River Border-Crossing. The system was purchased on a TURN KEY project, including civil works, buildings, IT systems, Security Systems, a Gantry Scanners on rails, and System Integration.
A similar turn key tender was awarded in 2022 for the new Port of Haifa.
All projects include 10 years of maintenance for each system, with a team of experts on site to achive continuos operation of the comlex systems.
To Summarize: For more than 15 years Nuctech and Comodan dominate the supply of High Energy X-Ray Scanning System in all ports and border crossing in Israel. See the map with the locations of Nuctech’s systems in Israel.
