Strukton wins tender for passenger information system in Breda

24 January 2014

Strukton Systems has been awarded the contract for the supply, installation and maintenance of a Dynamic Passenger Information System (DPIS) at the newly-planned public transport terminal in Breda, the Netherlands. This DPIS will provide continuously-updated travel information to local bus passengers.

DRIS Breda 

All in all, Strukton will be supplying 53 displays over a six-month term. The first displays will be installed in the summer of 2014. The contract was awarded based on the principle of the Most Economically Advantageous Tender (MEAT). MEAT evaluations not only take the bid price into account, but also the candidate’s ability to provide quality plans in areas such as sustainability and risk analysis.

Maintenance

Besides the development, manufacturing, installation and systems integration of the DPIS, the contract also covers the maintenance of the system. Among other things, this maintenance will include:

  • Technical care and servicing
  • Preventive and corrective maintenance
  • The required data communications for the system.

The maintenance contract becomes effective for a term of 10 years as of the date of the system’s acceptance, with an optional extension of maximally two times two years.

Breda’s new railway station

The new public transport terminal is being realised by order of ProRail, Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) and the Municipality of Breda. The project is included in Breda’s newly-developed NS railway station. The 20,000-m² terminal will combine a train station, office space, 150 homes, 720 parking spaces and a full indoor bus station with 20 stops. With the accommodation of a train station and bus station under a single roof, Breda will be gaining an integrated public transport terminal.
