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 use Synectics Security's latest recording technology, integrated reversing systems and comprehensive in-territory support.

Paul Webb, Chief Executive of Synectics plc, 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."
