Bombardier contract award

25 July 2007

Petards awarded contract by Bombardier Transportation for Petards eyeTrain on-board digital CCTV systems for Class 465 and 466 trains.

The contract, which is worth in excess of £2m, is for the supply and installation of eyeTrain systems that are to be fitted to 286 vehicles owned by Angel Trains. Deliveries are expected to commence towards the end of 2007 and will continue throughout 2008. In addition Petards will be fitting its new high definition mega-pixel cameras that integrate into the eyeTrain recording system. These cameras are used to capture the view from the driver's cab to assist in the investigation of trackside incidents.

Petards Chief Executive Bill Conn said "We are delighted to have secured this contract which again demonstrates the value of our broad based supply, installation and service capability. It also reinforces eyeTrains strong position in the market place and Petards commitment to continually develop the product as a platform to provide solutions sought by our customers, such as the integration of forward facing cameras".
