Nuctech's full-automatic railway scanner put into operation in Estonia


A Chinese designed full-automatic scanning control X-ray railway cargo inspection system has been put into operation recently in Narva Railway, northeast Estonia, Xinhua Net has reported.

Manufactured by Nuctech Warsaw, a security scanning solutions provider owned by Nuctech in the Netherlands, it is the first system of its kind that Nuctech has delivered abroad.

To date, Nuctech has completed the delivery of five set of large X-ray container inspection equipment to Estonia's customs authority, as part of a cooperation agreement between the two sides in 2016.

The equipment is designed by China and made in Poland. It is high-tech equipment in the international market, allowing Estonia to quickly process items through customs –– improving efficiency at the country's ports, said China's Ambassador to Estonia Li Chao, during the delivery ceremony.

Estonia has been a reliable Chinese partner in the European Union, in the Baltic region, and as part of the Belt and Road Initiative, Li added.

He also disclosed that several memorandums of cooperation have been signed between the two countries regarding e-commerce and the digital Silk Road since Estonia joined the Belt and Road Initiative last year and the two parties are expected to cooperate in more areas, such as agriculture and logistics, Li said.

The Estonian Tax and Customs Board director, Valdur Laid praised Nuctech's products and services, saying that the inspection system project  was worthwhile as it would help provide secure customs services on the country's northeast border.

"The project is very important to the Estonian customs authority. But despite many difficulties and challenges, it is now complete," the official said in an interview with Xinhua News Agency.

I was involved with a Nuctech's project in Estonia seven years ago, and I became a full-time employee of Nuctech two years ago. I've been consistently impressed by the company's technologies and unrivaled after-sales service, which includes 10 years of maintenance cover for its equipment," said an Estonian employee with Nuctech.

Nuctech Warsaw's general manager, Bian Xiaohao said that the company will work to maintain a good working relationship with the Estonian customs authority and continue to offer innovative and competitive products and solutions, in order to make further contributions to the country's border security.
