Security business secures £1.4m worth of contracts with transport authority

Advanced security and surveillance business, Synectics, has been awarded several new contracts for the Irish Republic’s National Transport Authority (NTA) with an aggregate value of £1.4m.

Synectics’ Security division will provide critical on-board safety and surveillance systems, featuring its latest recording technology and integrated reversing systems, for new plug-in hybrid double-deck vehicles.

These new hybrid vehicles, supplied by UK bus builder Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL), will be operated by Irish operators, Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann, with in-country support and maintenance provided by Sheffield-based Synectics.

These latest contracts are in addition to those secured with UK and European bus manufacturers for the NTA worth over £1m, announced by Synectics on 28 July 2020.

Paul Webb, chief executive of the listed firm, said: “These new contracts are testament to our long commitment to support the Irish bus market, and our close working relationships with ADL, the NTA and Irish bus operators.

“We are delighted to be working once again with the NTA to support their transition to next-generation, low emission vehicles – a trend we hope to see reflected as part of the UK’s National Bus Strategy development.”
