Three consortia confirm bids in toll collection tender

The Slovak-Swiss consortium ToSy.sk led by the company Elektrovod Holding Bratislava and the consortium headed by the Austrian company Kapsch TrafficCom have confirmed they submitted bids in the tender to supply a complete electronic toll collection service in Slovakia by today’s deadline.

The Slovak-Swiss consortium ToSy.sk led by the company Elektrovod Holding Bratislava and the consortium headed by the Austrian company Kapsch TrafficCom have confirmed they submitted bids in the tender to supply a complete electronic toll collection service in Slovakia by today’s deadline.

The consortium of the Italian highway company Autostrade per I'Italia S.p.A. Rome confirmed for the SITA newswire that it had offered technology based on a GPS system. The group of Ibertax Bratislava and SanToll Bratislava has not yet commented on its bid.

NDS spokesman Marcel Jánošík told SITA that the procurer would make an announcement about the tender on March 13 at 14:00. The deadline to submit a bid expires at midnight. Eight companies applied for participation in the tender, which was announced by the National Highway Company.

Apart from the four above-mentioned entities, the Satways consortium was also selected, but ultimately decided not to submit its bid.

Another consortium that included Slovak Telekom, Satellic Traffic Management GmbH (an affiliate of T-Systems Enterprise Services GmbH), Siemens and ABN Amro Bank N.V. disintegrated when it failed to agree on the terms of the future shareholders' agreement. Since then Siemens has become the technology supplier to the SanToll consortium, which is backed by the French company Sanef.

Electronic toll collection is to start functioning in Slovakia from January 1, 2009 for motor vehicles weighing over 3.5 tonnes. The toll will be charged on 2,400 kilometres of roads and highways. The selected provider is to supply the service based on the DBFOT (design, build, finance, operate and transfer) system. SITA
