Colour Mobile VMS has partnered with two other providers of mobile and solar-powered monitoring and visual information systems, to form MVIS (Mobile Visual Information Systems). Colour Mobile has linked up with transport technology contractor, P&D Specialist Services, and the Australian manufacturer of portable solar-powered traffic systems, Bartco Traffic Equipment. Colour Mobile was the first company in the UK to supply color solar-powered mobile VMS (Variable Message Sign) systems to the traffic management, events and advertising sectors. MVIS will continue to distribute Bartco’s color VMS systems, along with a much wider VMS range, including vehicle mounted and permanent pole mounted variants. In addition to VMS products, MVIS will also offer environmentally friendly lighting systems, and a range of CCTV and ‘Smart Sensor’ radar monitoring systems mounted on solar platforms.
MVIS will be led by managing director, Tony Price, who said at the new company’s launch, “I am delighted to announce this new partnership. It combines all of our strengths, including 25 years ITS (Intelligent Transport Solutions) experience with P&D Specialist Services and Bartco’s 15 years of experience in manufacturing color mobile VMS signs and their innovative research and development. The name MVIS portrays a more accurate representation of the company’s increasing offer, which has been developed in response to customer needs. Our range is being constantly developed to complement forward-thinking Intelligent Transport Solutions strategies across the UK, and as a result, now far exceeds the scope of our initial VMS portfolio. MVIS reflects our increasingly comprehensive offer of fast, flexible, comprehensive temporary solutions, communicating to our customers the extensive choice that we provide.”
The three companies have just delivered what is believed to be the largest single deployment of solar-powered VMS signs in the world for Transport for London (TfL). The 177 VMS systems have been installed along the city’s Olympic Route Network (ORN), for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
