Sensys Gatso wins enforcement camera system contracts in Australia, Germany and Saudi Arabia


One of the world’s largest suppliers of traffic enforcement equipment, the Sensys Gatso Group, has received new orders for speed and red-light camera systems in Australia, Germany and Saudi Arabia.

Earlier this year, Sensys Gatso announced a procurement award for in-vehicle based traffic enforcement systems from a governmental customer in Saudi Arabia. The procurement award concerned the delivery of speed monitoring systems to a potential total value of US$11m (Skr100m). Under this award, the customer has now placed a first order worth US$7.3m (Skr66m). The company has announced that out of a total of five batches related to this order, the first delivery has now been successfully completed, which in turn has triggered the shipment of the second delivery. Sensys Gatso’s T-series in-vehicle speed camera systems have had a great impact on driver behavior in the Middle East, as their deployment is unpredictable in time and location. The systems can be quickly deployed in large quantities without having to install fixed units on the roadside.

Saman Alae Naziri, general manager for Sensys Gatso’s MENA region, commented, “We are not only excited to have successfully delivered and installed the first batch, but also to have established a closer relationship with an important customer with whom we hope to have a long-term relationship in this very relevant market.”

Through its subsidiary, Sensys Gatso Deutschland, the company has been awarded an automated traffic enforcement program in Bochum, a city in the center of the Ruhr area, and one of the 20 largest cities in Germany. Under the five-year US$552,760 (Skr5m) managed services contract, Sensys Gatso Deutschland will install fixed combined red-light and speed camera systems at six sites in the city. The company will also provide its Xilium back-office violation processing software platform, including installation, maintenance and staff training.

Dietmar Schwalm, head of sales for Sensys Gatso Deutschland, said, “We are looking forward to supporting the city of Bochum in the area of traffic safety. With this new program, we are proud to further expand our Managed Service business in Germany.”

Through its subsidiary Sensys Gatso Australia, the company received an order worth US$641,500 (Skr5.8m) for new traffic safety systems supply and services to the New South Wales Government. The contract is for the supply and installation of new traffic speed enforcement systems at selected highway sites across the state of New South Wales, which are expected to be completed by the end of 2018.

Sensys Gatso Australia’s operations manager, Paul Holschier, observed, “The installation of new traffic safety system technology at the selected highway locations will help to expand the existing network of traffic safety systems across the state of New South Wales. We are pleased to assist the State of New South Wales in the ongoing reduction of injuries and fatalities across its road network with our high integrity solutions.”
