Session C3 - Procurement Issues and Opportunities

October 29 2010 , 08:30 am - 10:15 am

A procurement workshop is being held at the PRT@LHR conference in London in September. It will focus on the many unique challenges PRT presents for procurement: especially as the technology is only now beginning to have systems in passenger service (Morgantown is an exception to this). These challenges include 1) an owner being committed to a technology for expansion or extension, when they might only be purchasing a small portion of their system initially, 2) new signaling system requirements, 3) determining/defining applicable codes and standards, 4) local procurement regulations, 5) how to specify a PRT system.

This session will present the outcome of the workshop for further discussion.

Moderator: Steve Perliss, Western Regional Director, Lea + Elliot
