Austrian EFKON successfully enters Norwegian road-toll market

21. December 2018

More than 100 tollgates for Oslo and Bergen

EFKON, specializing in toll collection systems, will provide Norway’s two largest cities, Oslo and Bergen, with new collecting solutions. A total of more than 100 tollgates will be established for the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA). The contract value amounts to approx. 11 million euros (about NOK 100 million) and includes maintenance services for a period of eight years, which may be extended to a maximum of 17 years. The contract for Oslo includes the installation and operation of 73 stations, which are to be put into service on 1 March 2019. In Bergen, 14 stations will be newly installed, while 14 others will be modernized. Some of these 28 stations will already enter into operation on 1 January 2019, the remaining stations on 1 June 2019. 

Challenges in old cities ask for innovative Solutions

Like many other European cities, Oslo and Bergen include both, comparably old buildings and relatively large green areas. In its call for tenders, EFKON‘s client NPRA underlined the importance of a modern solution which can be integrated into the cityscape in the best possible way. The draft submitted by EFKON convinced the client in particular because of its very attractive design and the small number of components.
