Alstom Transport awards Petards Destination Displays project

24 April 2009

Alstom Transport Belgium has recently awarded Petards a further contract to supply 144 External Destination Displays to be equipped on the M6 double decker vehicles for SNCB, the Belgian National State Rail operator.|

In response to rapid increasing passenger demand in the Brussels conurbation area, SNCB signed the €128m Phase 4 contract with the Consortium formed by Alstom Transport and Bombardier Transportation at the back end of 2008 for an additional 72 M6 vehicles to be delivered between April 2010 and March 2011. As part of the contract, Petards Destination Displays will be installed.

Balvinder Chana, Petards Transport Commercial Director, commented: we are delighted to secure this new contract with Alstom Transport in Belgium which not only helps us to build on our existing relationships there but also gives us significant leverage and visibility across the entire Alstom Group where we are looking to identify and secure new business opportunities in the future.
