Khiron Security has undertaken the safety and security management contract for the Union Internationale Motonautique’s (UIM) Endurance Class Powerboat World Championship since 2007, and was awarded the Spirit of Sergio Cup for excellence.

For four years running, the safety and security management for the Powerboat P1 World Championship was awarded to Khiron Security. The service provided has received praise and recognition from the championship’s management:
“Khiron Security takes care of our safety and security requirements for the entire season. We could choose a company offering the same services from England or America or anywhere else but the service that we get out of Malta really makes it the ideal choice for us wherever we are in the world,” Robert Wicks, Commercial Director, told The Sunday Times of Malta in an interview.
Powerboat P1 management Operations Director, Andy Hindley, added: “Khiron Security is the exclusive supplier of risk assessments, security and risk management and race control personnel. The company has provided these services since 2007 with operations in the UK, Sweden, Portugal, Malta, France, Belgium, Tunisia, Turkey, Italy, Spain and the Ukraine.
“Always acting with professionalism and enthusiasm, Khiron staff have become an integral part of the P1 delivery platform. Their can‐do attitude to working in a range of difficult environmental conditions and for long hours gives them an edge over many other cntractors who have similar CV’s. Their understanding of what needs to be done and their commitment to getting it done are a credit to John and his leadership. When this is coupled with their experience and extensive knowledge base, they stand out from the crowd and give any employer a comfort zone that is difficult to replicate”.
