Netherlands-based Gatso Beheer (Gatso) has secured a €17.5m order from an unnamed new customer for the delivery of mobile speed enforcement systems.

The order includes delivery of a large quantity of mobile speed enforcement systems, a fully equipped workshop and extensive knowledge transfer for integration, maintenance and calibration.

The company said that the first shipment will be delivered this month, while the remaining shipments are scheduled to be delivered by the end of this year.

"Gatso successfully passed extensive trials before the contract was finally awarded."

Gatso sales and marketing director Edmar van der Weijden said: "Gatso successfully passed extensive trials before the contract was finally awarded.

"Derived from our many years of experience in France and the USA, we have engineered a near-invisible solution that can operate efficiently large-scale under extreme environmental conditions."

The Dutch firm has also secured another order worth €720,000 for traffic safety systems in the Middle East.

This order is an addition to the order from a new customer in the Middle East announced in June.

It includes the supply of red light and speed camera systems and is expected to be delivered during the third quarter of this year.

Gatso managing director Timo Gatsonides said: "This follow-on order is encouraging and we are looking to further develop our cooperation with this customer."

In June, Swedish traffic safety solutions supplier Sensys Traffic has agreed to buy Gatso for approximately SKr278m ($33m).

The acquisition of Gatso is expected to be finalised on 31 July following an approval by the Extra General Meeting in Sensys on 24 July.

Gatso is a supplier of traffic enforcement systems and associated services with service provider operations in the North American market.
