TagMaster Awarded Contract by Alstom to Develop and Supply RFID Solution
An initial contract, worth in excess of €1 Million for TagMaster, covers the development phase and the supply of equipment for use on a re-signalling project in Lille, France. Alstom was selected by Lille Métropole to renew Lille’s Line 1 automatic metro to provide an integrated system which includes an automatic driver system and new metro train-sets in order to address the expected increase in traffic over the coming years. The new system will be less costly to maintain and more flexible to run.
“Following their detailed and intensive evaluation and qualification process, TagMaster is very pleased to be selected by Alstom as a supplier for this important development and supply project. The aim of our agreement is to create a long-term partnership between our companies, which will lead to further supply projects for this new solution over the coming years,” commented Richard Holt, Director of Sales - Transportation at TagMaster AB.
