Security…goes to the port

The Sardinian port Marina of Villasimius is now under the protection of Axis

“We are satisfied with the Axis video surveillance system installed because it enhances security in the port and allow us to have a useful tool to promote the safety of personnel engaged professionally within the port area, and the increased safety of port traffic.“
Amedeo Ferrigno, Director of the Marina of Villasimius.


The Marina of Villasimius of Cagliari is located within the Protected Marine Area of Capo Carbonara, behind the promontory of the same name in the glorious and renowned sandy harbor; it is a structure built in accordance with the traditional architecture of the area, strategically situated for navigational routes just a few steps from the city center. The port is equipped to accommodate up to 800 vessels and aims for excellence in quality of service to all. The needs to document damages that may occur during docking maneuvers, to monitor the control of gates, to identify perpetrators of various crimes and offenses in areas with limited access, and taking into consideration the high value of the vessels using the port, all prompted the port management to acquire a video surveillance system capable of ensuring security inside and around the port.


In order to address the security of the port, the Marina of Villasimius chose to rely on the expertise of IT Euromedia, System Integrator of Selargius (CA), and the consultancy of Elmat, a direct distributor of leading brands for structured cabling and networking, in order to create an IP video surveillance system consisting of Axis network cameras. “The models AXIS 221 and AXIS 214 PTZ were chosen mainly for the high reliability that these products offer and guarantee. Having listened to the requirements of the Marina’s management, and through consultancy with Elmat, we opted for the creation of a video surveillance system with Axis network cameras,” says Claudio Aresu of IT Euromedia.


Thanks to the Axis video surveillance system, the Marina of Villasimius was able to meet all of their security needs. Just a few months after installation, the system has already proven invaluable. In fact, thanks to the excellent image quality of the recordings, it has been possible to detect key elements and facilitate the identification of perpetrators of certain offenses.
