The tender, which saw Pulsar face stiff competition from eight other suppliers including bidders from EU countries, required the supply of class one sound level meters that had PTB approval and came with UKAS certification for the Cypriot municipalities.

Each municipality chose the quantity of sound level meters they required. These devices will be used across a range of applications to help measure and manage localised noise issues.

An additional positive that worked in Pulsar’s favour, other than the high standard of certification for their noise solutions and their ability to calibrate to UKAS standards, was their seven-year warranty.

This gave the Cyprus government confidence in the product and meant they could accurately budget for any future costs knowing that most issues would be covered under warranty.

The tender will be delivered in two phases.

The first is around £80k worth of sound level meters and calibration worth an additional £13k. An additional 10 units worth around £41k will be sent in phase two.

Simon Rehill, general manager at Pulsar Instruments, said: “Despite the UK leaving the EU, we’ve been able to prove that the quality of our instruments overrides any concerns that our customers may have had surrounding Brexit.

“There were eight companies that who tendered for this deal, but the combination of cost, warranty, UKAS accreditation, and service, along with the quality of the proposed training all combined to help Pulsar and Group Science come out on top.”
