Contract win - Stadler

29 March 2017

Petards announces that it has been awarded a contract to supply Stadler Bussnang AG with its eyeTrain CCTV and Automatic Selective Door Opening systems.

The new contract, which is worth £4.3 million, is for the design, development and supply of CCTV and ASDO systems integrated into Stadler’s FLIRTUK trains. Engineering activities will commence immediately with the first equipment deliveries starting in June 2017 and is expected that the project will be completed during Q2 2019.

The equipment will provide the trains and the driver with enhanced capability in the areas of security and surveillance through CCTV coverage of both the internal and external of saloon areas combined with pantograph, forward facing and track debris monitoring systems integrated with our video management software. Additionally the ASDO system delivers improved passenger operations at stations where the platforms are shorter than the trains.

Commenting, Petards Chairman Raschid Abdullah said: “We are delighted that Petards eyeTrain CCTV and ASDO systems have been selected by Stadler for their first UK Mainline Rolling stock contract.

“This new contract provides Petards with another exciting rail project with a new customer, which significantly enhances its position as a leading provider of security and surveillance systems to the UK Rail industry and considerably adding to the Group’s present order book for delivery over the next three years.

“We welcome Stadler as a new customer of Petards with the integration onto their FLIRT platform. We are all thrilled about the potential of this new partnership with Stadler, a long established world leading train builder.”
