Vancouver-based Cantronic Systems Inc., has successfully bid as the primary contractor for the Safe City project of Haicheng City in China's Liaoning province.
The project, worth approximately $3.9-million, includes the supply and installation of networked video surveillance cameras systems and is expected to be completed within the next three months.
"The Safe City initiative is a major growth driver for the video surveillance industry in China and being a primary contractor for Haicheng is an excellent opportunity for Cantronic to build on our strengths for future similar roles," says James Zahn, Cantronic president and CEO. "Haicheng is only one of the cities in Liaoning province, which expects to deploy approximately 500,000 surveillance cameras over the next three years."
Safe City is a Chinese government-mandated initiative to deploy networked surveillance camera systems in more than 660 medium-sized to large cities across China. Haicheng City is Cantronic's second large-scale Safe City project in the province of Liaoning.
Cantronic Systems manufactures, distributes and provides training and services in the fields of infrared vision and video security surveillance technologies, specializing in passive and active infrared cameras, infrared illuminators, low light infrared sensitive CCD cameras and long-range night vision surveillance systems for homeland security and surveillance application.
