In Umeå and Vindel region the whole water treatment process is provided by the Swedish company Vakin. Previously Vakin had several different locking systems in use, and the management of the keys was unsatisfactory.
– There were no control over who had a key and what building that key gave access to. Even master keys could be unaccounted for, says Mattias Lind, Vakin’s Safety andSecurity Coordinator.
Nowadays nearly all Vakin’s water utilities and wastewater treatment plants rely on the PROTEC2 CLIQ™ locking system, and access control have become considerably easier.
Besides making the old uncontrolledkeys invalid, the new system has also made Vakin revisetheir key management in dispersed facilities.
