RAF Akrotiri

OVERVIEW

RAF Akrotiri is home to the Cyprus Operations Support Unit providing joint support to British Forces Cyprus and operations in the region to protect the UK’s strategic interests.


The base was opened in 1955 to initially relieve the pressure on the main RAF station on the island, and has since grown into a forward thinking training unit. However, back in October 2015 the RAF base was subject to many reports when 114 refugees landed at the British Sovereign base; a critical front line station for the MOD and Royal Air Force.


The Brief

In order to detect, deter and delay any potential threat, the client had a number of requirements to meet the increasing level of security for the base.

  • Increase protection of assets and personnel with their security fence line.
  • Approved for Government Use fencing system.
  • Provide a robust solution to stand up against the rigours of daily life and exposure to harsh aviation fuels.
