Successes using ADANI Transmission X-ray Body Scanner

16 October 2020 / security

The use of drugs and mobile phones in prisons has been identified as an issue and locating them being transported internally by prisoners has been extremely difficult. To help tackle this problem following an extensive review of the various X-ray Body Scanners available from different manufacturers the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) recently awarded ADANI Ltd a major 14-year (4 year supply, 10 year support) Framework Contract for the CONPASS TR.

Since award ADANI has worked with the various Specialists in the MoJ to ensure that the system is optimised for use in the prison environment, is easy for staff to use and understand and is highly efficient in detecting contraband hidden on or in prisoners bodies.

The first system was installed, with help from the prison and MoJ staff, in HMP Durham earlier in July. Within the first 72 hours five prisoners were found to have contraband on/in their person – finds that would not have occurred without the availability of the ADANI Body Scanner. Roll-out across other prisons is now underway.

Rob Keeler - Business Development Director at ADANI Ltd, said “I am pleased that the ADANI Body Scanner has already demonstrated so quickly the significant benefits it offers prisons in detecting contraband – and I am sure it will continue to do this both as a result of direct detection and deterrence. I would also like to thank the MoJ Staff for all their assistance in optimising the interface and performance for the specific needs related to prisons, and to our service partner company Braun Medical”

Jaimie Hardy – Project Manager, Body Scanners, Adani Ltd “The MoJ had very specific requirements in relation to what it wanted from a body scanner, in terms of Image quality, user interface, anti- tamper hardening, speed, and dosage, Adani Ltd’s capabilities in delivering effective, tailor-made solutions to its customers is now manifestly paying dividends, we are proud of the product, and extremely pleased that we have enhanced the MoJ’s ability to tackle the smuggling of Contraband into the Estate”
