After successfully helping secure a safe World Cup tournament in Brazil, a Chinese advanced security-inspection system was again used at a major event in the country - the sixth BRICS summit.
Beijing-based Nuctech Co installed 18 security-inspection facilities at the summit's international convention and media centers in Fortaleza. "We were asked to prepare for the BRICS summit because our products won the trust of the Brazilian government through our cooperation in the World Cup," said Chen Yongjian, general manager of Nuctech's branch office in Brazil.
Nuctech will also provide security-inspection service for the celebration ceremony in Brasilia for the 40th anniversary of the establishment of China-Brazil relations.
"We were told to provide facilities for the convention center in Brasilia in a rather short notice," said Chen, "the organizer directly asked us to participate in the event because they appreciated our efficiency during the World Cup."
During the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Nuctech provided about 600 pieces of equipment for nine of the 12 World Cup stadiums across Brazil, including the Arena de Sao Paulo.
"We have many competitors this time, but we successfully won the projects for nine World Cup stadiums because of our efficiency and quality guarantee," said Chen. "Chinese people are hard working and can provide the best quality in the shortest time. This is one of our major advantages and is valued by the world market."
Chen said providing security-inspection facilities for the World Cup and BRICS summit helped Nuctech accumulate much experience in the security service of large-scale international competition and high-level meetings. "It also is a good chance to build our image as first-class high-tech security solutions and service provider," he said.
Chen said Nuctech had been preparing for this World Cup for a long time, and provided security-inspection equipment for the Confederations Cup in 2013.
"Our cooperation with the Brazilian government during the Confederations Cup was very successful, which gave us confidence in providing even better service for the World Cup. We hope we can also contribute to the Olympic Games in 2016," said Chen.
About 10 Nuctech technicians arrived in Brazil to set up the facilities. Chen said the Nuctech Brazil branch office, established earlier this year, will continue to provide technology support over the next 10 to 15 years.
"Besides the Chinese technicians, we will also train local technicians and teach them core technologies. This will guarantee our service and also create more job opportunities," he said.
Nuctech Co originated at Tsinghua University, one of China's top universities specializing in science and technology. The company focuses on various types of security equipment, from X-ray imaging to radiation detection.
"Our technology in this field is ranked first in the world," said Yu Ping, deputy-general manager of Nuctech's branch office in Brazil.
