Petards, the AIM quoted developer of advanced security and surveillance systems, announces that it has been awarded a contract by Bombardier Transportation (“Bombardier”) to supply Petards eyeTrain® on-board digital CCTV systems as part of a major train refurbishment programme.
The contract, which is worth in the region of £1.5m, is for the supply of eyeTrain® systems to be fitted by Bombardier to 97 Class 465 passenger trains operated by Southeastern Trains. Deliveries of the systems are expected to commence in early 2011 and to be completed by the end of that year.
Commenting, Bill Conn, Petards Chief Executive said:
“We are delighted to be working on another project with Bombardier on the roll out of eyeTrain® CCTV systems onto Class 465 vehicles and follows the announcement last week of a larger contract that was also for rolling stock being operated by Southeastern Trains. This award gives further confirmation of Petards high standing in the onboard CCTV market and that customers value both the flexibility and rail-proven nature of our eyeTrain® product.”
