First Hull Trains awards Petards CCTV and Forward facing camera project
30 December 2008
Petard awarded two major contracts to supply and install new generation of eyeTrain on-board digital CCTV systems on locomotives and passenger vehicles.
First Hull Trains has awarded Petards the contract to supply and install eyeTrain™ digital CCTV systems for both saloon carriages and locomotive forward facing cameras for their Class 180 "Adelante" DMU vehicles.
First Hull Trains has recently acquired Class 180 five cars sets which they will commence refurbishing in January 2009. As part of this refurbishment Petards' market leading fully digital eyeTrain™ CCTV & Forward Facing system will be installed.
Class 180 trains can operate up to speeds of 125 mph and will operate on First Hull Trains' prestigious Hull to London King's Cross high speed route.
Balvinder Chana, Petards Transport Commercial Director, commented "This contract with First Hull Trains builds on our existing relationship with other First Group train operating companies including First Great Western, First Capital Connect and First Scotrail, and we are very pleased that eyeTrain™ systems are to be fitted on these vehicles which will provide First Hull Trains customers with a safe and secure travelling environment."
