International Road Dynamics (IRD), in partnership with SEA Electronics (SEA), has secured a $3.3m commercial vehicle enforcement systems contract in Ukraine.

As part of the contract, IRD will deliver high-speed virtual weigh-in-motion (WIM) systems for six sites in Ukraine.

These systems will offer commercial vehicle enforcement, traffic monitoring and reporting capability through a web-based application.

The contract is said to build on IRD’s current partnership with Ukraine-based SEA, which supplies and produces electrical equipment, including traffic control systems.

The companies recently partnered to deploy a WIM pilot project for the Ukrainian road agency, Ukravtodor, at six sites. IRD supplied the roadside equipment and WIM processing software to collect real-time traffic data at these sites.

During the project, it also supported the implementation of overweight and over-dimension commercial vehicles, as well as vehicles that are potentially in violation of local operating regulations.

The new project, which is said to build on the success of the pilot project, will see the installation of six additional virtual WIM sites by SEA for the State Enterprise Financing of Infrastructure Projects (FinInPro).

IRD will provide WIM systems and virtual weigh station (VWS) software for vehicle monitoring and enforcement on 16 traffic lanes at the new sites.

IRD president and CEO Rish Malhotra said: “We are pleased to build on the success of the pilot programme and to expand both our partnership with SEA Electronics and our presence in Ukraine.

“FinInPro’s selection of SEA, and IRD’s monitoring and enforcement technology, is a forward-looking decision that will assist Ukraine in meeting road safety and infrastructure preservation goals, thereby benefiting vehicle operators, passengers and the broader public.”

In July 2016, IRD secured a contract from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation for the installation, calibration and maintenance of WIM systems across the state.
