Q-Free wins ETC contracts in Norway

Q-Free has strengthened its activities in Norway through: the extension of four existing service agreements for the country’s AutoPass electronic toll collection (ETC) system; delivery of two new AutoPass roadside systems; and increased scope in the existing central systems agreement with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (Statens vegvesen). The total combined contract value is NKr24m (US$4m) and the contracts have a further potential of NKr15m (US$2.5m) over the lifetime of the projects.

Q-Free currently have 11 agreements for service and maintenance of the AutoPass system in Norway. Six of these were previously extended in February this year, and the company has now been awarded an extension for another four. One smaller agreement has yet to be extended. The company has also been awarded two new delivery projects, on Askøy and in Hålogaland, both including service and maintenance agreements. These awards may still be contested under the procurement procedures of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.

The extension of the contract for operation of the central system for toll collection relates to new installations completed in 2014. The Norwegian AutoPass ETC system is based on DSRC (Dedicated Short-Range Communications) technology using the 5.8GHz waveband and is used on 23 of the country’s 45 toll roads. Q-Free’s CEO, Thomas Falck, said, “These contracts confirm that we have an attractive portfolio offering in our home market in Norway.”
