Spanish win for Petards eyeTrain
22 April 2010
Passengers travelling on Mallorca's tram and train network between Manacor and Artácan will soon be ensured of increased safety and security thanks to Petards latest contract win.
Petards have been chosen by Vossloh Espana S.A as preferred supplier for on-board CCTV and Automatic Passenger Counting Systems for use on the new 4100/4300 train-tram series.
The revolutionary new vehicles will not only be less contaminating, faster and more efficient but can also function as both a suburban train in the metropolitan area and as a tram in the urban context.
As part of the agreement, Petards will initially supply systems for 6 new train-trams being supplied by Vossloh to line operator Serveis Ferroviaris de Mallorca. There is also an option for a further 6 additional train units to be delivered at a later date.
Commenting on the order, Petards Chief Executive Bill Conn said "We are extremely pleased to have won this contract, not only in a country that shows great potential for eyeTrain products, but also on such advanced new vehicles.
Vossloh is a leading, innovative supplier in the global transport industry. We are delighted they have chosen eyeTrain solutions and look forward to working together on other projects in the future."
