The world’s largest supplier of traffic enforcement equipment, the Sensys Gatso Group, has been awarded a new speed camera contract in Belgium and a new speed and red-light photo enforcement contract in the USA.
Through its subsidiary, Sensys Gatso Netherlands, the Group has received a four-year procurement award from the Belgium Walloon Government for the delivery of traffic-safety speed enforcement cameras.
Sensys Gatso, together with its partner in Belgium, has received the contract, and even though there are no purchase obligations in the award, the value for Sensys Gatso’s part is estimated to be approximately US$3m (Skr27m) over a period of four years.
The company has already received a first order from this award worth US$615,240 (Skr5.4m) and the new equipment is expected to be delivered in the second half of 2018, depending on planning.
Through its subsidiary, Sensys Gatso USA, the Group will also be providing a speed and red-light photo enforcement program to the town of Upper Marlboro in Maryland. New to photo enforcement, the town of Upper Marlboro has selected Sensys Gatso USA as its managed services provider for a program consisting of two fixed-speed cameras in school zones, and two red-light intersection cameras.
Under this four-year contract, Sensys Gatso will handle the camera installation, maintenance and personnel training, as well as the entire fulfillment process, which includes citations mailing and payment processing. The program is likely to begin in July of this year.
Rich Kosina, chief technology officer at Sensys Gatso USA, commented, “Whenever we have the opportunity to work with a town that is new to photo enforcement, we can tailor the program to meet their most immediate concerns, which, at this point in time, is school zone safety.”
