Security and surveillance system manufacturer Petards has secured a contract worth more than £1m with manufacturing giant Hyundai.

The Gateshead-based firm, the developer of advanced security and surveillance systems, said it has been awarded a contract to supply Hyundai Rotem of South Korea with its eyeTrain on-board digital CCTV systems for trains they are supplying to New Zealand.

The systems will be installed on 70 additional Matangi EMU cars that Hyundai Rotem will supply to Greater Wellington Railways as part of a new extension order.

Deliveries are expected to start in the second half of 2014, to be completed by the end of that year.

Chairman Raschid Abdullah said: “We believe this is a good example of the opportunities for repeat business.”
