Point Roberts, WA (PressExposure) March 03, 2009 -- Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc. (WDT) and International Golden Group (IGG) have entered into a strategic partnership agreement for the provision of Floating Security Barriers (FSB) / Vessel Exclusion Barriers (VEB) to be installed at critical maritime infrastructure sites in the UAE encompassing oil, gas, power generation, and desalination facilities.
The contract covers 3 years, including the initial contract period with options, and has a value of USD $100 million, if all options are exercised and performance incentives are achieved. The initial production of the contract is being manufactured in Norfolk, VA, USA. The contract provides that WDT will utilize its WhisprWaveÃ Technology to ultimately manufacture FSB components locally in the UAE and provide related maritime services in support of the protective systems.
The initial phase of this agreement is to undertake a pilot project at one of the critical maritime infrastructure sites in Abu Dhabi. Following a successful pilot project with security issues achieved as planned, the partnership agreement will be extended to cover other critical maritime infrastructure sites within the UAE.
The FSB is designed with inherent flexibility to provide a platform that enables the addition of CCTV, Radar, Sonar, Anti-Swimmer Detection and Anti-Intrusion Detection Systems. Moreover, the system will act as a limited wave attenuator and with the addition of an attached oil boom will limit the affected area of oil spills.
According to Mr. Fadil Al Kaabi, CEO of IGG, âThis partnership represents a great example of the cooperation between the UAE and USA in sharing technology and expertise to help secure our critical national maritime infrastructure. We look forward to working with WDT to further market this technology throughout the Middle East.â
According to Dennis G. Smith, CEO of WDT, âWDT has successfully marketed and installed its WhisprWaveÃ Technology in the USA, and elsewhere, but this agreement represents a true extension and prime example of cooperation by the USA to meet the UAEâs need for cutting edge technologies and foresight to proactively protect its critical maritime infrastructure. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with IGG.â
