The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) has awarded Norbit ITS the first contract under a four-year frame agreement to deliver more than 100,000 toll tags to Norwegian AutoPass System during the first quarter of 2018. The value of the contract is undisclosed.
NPRA purchases the tags on behalf of the various tolling operators, and each contract is awarded in competition with other suppliers.
Norbit holds a market share of more than 70% for the toll tags in the Norwegian AutoPass system and the tags will be manufactured at its production facility in Røros, Norway.
Per Jørgen Weisethaunet, chairman and group chief executive officer, said: “We are pleased to win this important contract with NPRA. Although price is always an important parameter, well-functioning technology is a prerequisite to satisfy the requirements of both the tolling operators and the end-users. Hence, we believe that our strategy of combining leading edge technology knowledge with modern robotization is what makes us competitive.”
