Cir­rus’s sup­ply deal with Costa Rica

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

THE YORK­SHIRE-BASED noise mon­i­tor­ing spe­cial­ists Cir­rus Re­search has com­pleted a six-fig­ure con­tract to sup­ply the Costa Ri­can gov­ern­ment with a sys­tem to cut noise pol­lu­tion.

The or­der for 50 of the com­pany’s ‘Op­ti­mus Reds’ was shipped to the coun­try where they are go­ing to be de­ployed by the gov­ern­ment’s road safety coun­cil in a cam­paign to re­duce traf­fic noise pol­lu­tion in some of its cities such as the cap­i­tal, San Jose.

A spokesman for the com­pany, which is based in Hun­manby, near Bridling­ton, said: “The Op­ti­mus Red kits had al­ready been used by the Costa Ri­can po­lice force and proved so pop­u­lar among the of­fi­cers for its user­friendly ap­pli­ca­tion and read­ing ac­cu­racy that the road safety coun­cil fol­lowed suit.

“The project and the kits were even fea­tured on the na­tional news in Costa Rica, as part of a story about how of­fi­cers were try­ing to tackle traf­fic noise pol­lu­tion on the streets.”
