Saskatoon, SK, January 20, 2015 - International Road Dynamics Inc. (IRD) announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Chippewa Concrete Services Inc. of Wisconsin to supply, install and maintain a Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) Sorting System at the Douglas County Safety and Weight Enforcement Facility (SWEF). The project is valued at approximately CAD $2.1 million with installation to be completed by the summer of 2016.
This contract includes the provision of Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) and ancillary equipment for the SWEF located on US Highway 2/53 near Superior, Wisconsin. IRD will supply and install its patented WIM scales, iSINC electronics, video verification system, vehicle movement compliance system and associated operational software. The system will allow commercial vehicles that comply with size and weight limits to bypass the facility, thereby reducing the number of trucks that are required to stop at the inspection station. With fewer delays at the SWEF, carriers are able to deliver goods in a more efficient and timely manner. Over the past ten years, IRD has supplied three Mainline WIM Sorter Systems and seven Virtual Weigh Station Systems to the State of Wisconsin. Maintenance, service and support of the system for a period of five years after system commissioning are included as part of this contract.
Mr. Terry Bergan, IRD’s President and CEO stated: “We are pleased to have been awarded this new contract in Wisconsin, another example that demonstrates the continued growth of our US deployments as commercial vehicle traffic and the associated movement of goods on our highways continue to increase. We expect this aspect of our business will continue to grow as we leverage our strong market reputation for quality and service.”
