Nuctech helps Australian officials seize 358kg of narcotics

MELBOURNE Feb. 23, 2017 According to a joint media release from the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Border Force (ABF), US$186 million worth of drugs was seized in Melbourne on Feb. 5, and four men were arrested in relation to the case. Nuctech's Relocatable Container/Vehicle Inspection System, which had just recently been upgraded, was instrumental in helping officials detect the contraband. It is the first time that one of Nuctech's high gradient accelerators has been used in container/vehicle inspection systems.

A shipping container from South Africa was found to have abnormalities during a routine check by ABF officers in Melbourne. The container was declared to be carrying mining equipment, but the scanning image clearly showed that there was something suspicious inside one of the machines. It was then passed on for an intrusive check, and 254 kg of cocaine and 104 kg of methamphetamine were found concealed in 358 packages within an iron ore extractor covered with activated charcoal.

While praising the officers and staff at the Melbourne Container Examination Facility for the seizure, ABF Regional Commander Victoria and Tasmania, James Watson, stated, "Our officers have the expertise and technology to detect even the most sophisticated concealment. In this instance, our upgraded container x-ray technology has been able to penetrate through several layers of steel, machinery and coal/stones to identify these concealed packages."

The cooperation between Nuctech and the Australian General Administration of Customs started in 2001 when Nuctech signed an export contract with Australian Customs for the Relocatable Container/Vehicle Inspection System. This was Nuctech's breakthrough into the overseas market. The machines are delivered in 2002 and have run smoothly since then. In the years since then, Nuctech has continued to work closely with Australian Customs while continuing to work hard on R&D. New technologies and functions are constantly being developed, and with a comprehensive understanding of our customer's needs, customized solutions are made.

In 2009 and 2016, technical upgrades made to the systems serving Australian Customs. The upgrades have turned the single-energy machines into dual-energy ones, and made them more powerful and user-friendly. Equipped with new accelerators and detectors, the systems now have stronger penetration power, and higher image resolution.

Last year, Nuctech's Computed Tomography Inspection Systems and Central Image Gallery Systems were adopted by Australian Customs, and this undoubtedly marks a renewing of the cooperation between Nuctech and Australian Customs.
