RNS: Contract Wins for ‘next generation’ Irish Buses
Tuesday, 28 July 2020
Synectics plc (AIM: SNX), a leader in the design, integration and support of advanced security and surveillance systems, announces contracts for the Irish Republic’s National Transport Authority (NTA) with an aggregate value in excess of £1.0 million.
The contracts will see Synectics’ Security division provide, install and maintain safety critical on-board surveillance systems for Irish-based bus operators Dublin Bus and Bus Eireann as the NTA transitions to low emission and electric buses.
New hybrid and hydrogen-powered vehicles have been ordered by the NTA from UK and European bus manufacturers, and all will take advantage of Synectics Security’s latest recording technology, integrated reversing systems and comprehensive in-territory support.
Paul Webb, Chief Executive of Synectics, commented: “These NTA contracts recognise Synectics Security’s long-term experience in the Irish bus market, expertise in on-bus surveillance systems and close working relationships with the major bus manufacturers.
“The NTA is leading the transition to low emission vehicles, a trend we expect to see replicated in the UK with operators purchasing next generation buses as part of the National Bus Strategy.
“Today’s news follows our recent announcement of a new three-year framework agreement with Stagecoach, the UK’s largest bus and coach operator.”
