Petards

Contract win from Bombardier Transportation

15 December 2009

Petards, the AIM quoted developer of advanced security and surveillance systems, announces that it has secured orders to supply Bombardier Transportation ("Bombardier") with Petards eyeTrain® on-board digital CCTV systems for new BOMBARDIER ELECTROSTAR Electrical Multiple Unit (EMU) trains.|

Petards eyeTrain® has been selected by Bombardier to be fitted to the 30 new four-car BOMBARDIER ELECTROSTAR EMU trains that they are building which will operate on the Stansted Express services between Stansted Airport and London city. The new trains are part of the UK's Department for Transport campaign to ease over-crowding on the rail network in the south of England. The value of the orders total over £1.5m and deliveries are expected to commence mid 2010 and to be completed during 2011.

Commenting on the orders, Petards Chief Executive Bill Conn said "We are extremely pleased to have secured this work and are looking forward to helping Bombardier deliver a world class solution on this prestigious project.

While we have worked with Bombardier on many previous occasions, these orders are particularly pleasing as this is the first time that we will have provided equipment to them on new build trains rather than on refurbishment projects which have dominated the UK market in recent years."
