Adani Power Strengthens The Fire Alert System At Their Tiroda Plant With Staqu’s AI-powered Video Analytics - JARVIS

*  JARVIS can identify fire events and send real-time alerts to ensure the safety of all

*  Integration can be done with existing CCTV cameras at Adani Power’s Tiroda Thermal Plant

*   Voice alerts and critical emails can be predefined at designated addresses

Staqu, India’s leading AI implementation enabler, has partnered with Adani Power Limited (APL), the largest private thermal power producer in India (part of the diversified Adani Group), to install JARVIS Video Analytics at the company’s Tiroda Thermal Plant. This association will help APL to quickly detect fire and smoke within the plant premises, thereby ensuring better safety.

Traditional fire alert systems were based on bulky and primitive architecture. With the increasing demand for power, large thermal power station campuses require a lean, modern, and hassle-free fire protection system to function with a modern framework. Power plants are being designed as such where structural components are purposefully designed to enable architectural freedom. JARVIS brings revolutionary fire detection technology which can be added or modified into existing systems. It can be configured on a real-time basis making workplaces safer, by preempting and Identifying fire even before there is smoke.

JARVIS’s plug-and-play capability makes it convenient to integrate the system within the existing CCTV camera setup. It automates various protocols related to security or safety, eliminating the possibility of error, and completing tasks that would otherwise be manually impossible. It helps safeguard supercritical plant units with key features such as voice alerts (in case of a fire), critical email alerts (on designated addresses), and dynamic video wall (for multiple camera) views at one go for fire safety and early detection. This helps in better coordination while alerting campus employees and nearby residents, ensuring safety from the get-go.

Commenting on the partnership, Mr Atul Rai Co-founder, and CEO, Staqu said “We believe in pioneering and implementing technological innovations by AI and Deep tech in our solutions to enhance security and safety. JARVIS is our notable product that can be implemented in several ways. We are glad that Adani Power Limited has selected JARVIS, our innovative security measure, to swiftly monitor, detect, and alert fire incidents at their Tiroda Thermal Plant making it the perfect security partner. This will enable them to control fire incidents and help safety teams to be better equipped and respond in case a situation arises.”

Commenting on the partnership, Mr Jayadeb Nanda, COO, Adani Power Limited said “Being a thermal power producer, Adani Power implements cutting edge technology across all our power stations to extract maximum output in the most efficient and safe manner. Similarly, we are very stringent on fire safety and have protocols as a preventative measure. We use smart technology to prevent and control fire incidents. JARVIS offers audio-video analytics and management technology that transforms security cameras to intelligent cameras. Its real-time alerts utilizing AI and Computer Vision will help us to anticipate and detect possible fires. We are looking forward to a long-term association.”

Sharing his thoughts on the partnership, Mr. Nitin Rohilla, CIO, Adani Power Limited, said, “A step forward towards making the plant more secure and fireproof. This collaboration will give a boost to the safety standards in thermal power plants with more high-tech solutions and real-time alerts. We will continue to deploy such technology-driven safety measures in the plant for the welfare of our employees.”

Talking about Adani’s commitment towards the safety of their employees, Mr. Kanti Biswas, Station Head, Adani Power Maharashtra Limited, said, “We are excited to partner with Staqu that provides high-quality preemptive solutions against fire accidents. This partnership will enable us to provide a more secure environment for the employees and strengthen our commitment towards the safety of our workforce.”

Commenting on the partnership, Mr Prakash Yadav, IT Head, Adani Power Maharashtra Limited said, “We are delighted to collaborate with Staqu to provide safety and data analytics through seamless technology. The all-new solution will entitle us to create meaningful information out of long CCTV video footage with short and crisp real-time alerts utilizing AI and Computer Vision.  We are committed to ensuring cutting-edge technologies and designing solutions that help transform processes, improve efficiencies, and enable world-class employee experiences.”

JARVIS enables safety and data analytics through seamless technology. The first advantage is that this platform is plug-and-play, only requiring a stable internet connection. Second, JARVIS not only analyzes video data, but also examines audio data from the CCTV. Therefore, both audio and video data (bimodal data) is used to analyze scenes, leaving no gaps. Lastly, the majority of companies in this field only provide video analytics, while Staqu’s solutions offer video management software to clients that enable them to aggregate all their feeds from different locations and view them in real time while also receiving real-time alerts on the dynamic video wall. On the other hand, many market players only facilitate post-event analysis or day-by-day reporting which hampers the communication flow and safety.

In addition, Staqu offers solutions not only for CCTV cameras but also drones, and even the mobile stream can be analyzed through its JARVIS platform. The solution enabled police forces to identify approximately 22,000 criminals, bust eight terrorist modules, and this won Staqu recognition from the Government of India.


JARVIS, fueled with Artificial Intelligence, patented technologies, and unique capabilities, is an audio-video analytics and management technology platform that offers innovation for security and the best possible solution for business.
