Sanef and Ibertax receives contract, and in turn select Siemens technology

Despite some political opposition, NDS on January 13 signed an €863 million agreement with SkyToll ( formerly known as SanToll), for the installation and operation of the satellite-based toll system by the Slovakian road traffic authority (NDS).

In turn, Siemens has received an Euro 81 million contract from SkyToll to supply the onboard units and roadside detectors to be used in Slovakia’s new truck toll system.

All trucks and buses weighing 3.5 metric tons or more will be included in Slovakia’s electronic tolling program, which will extend over 2,400km of roads in the country. SkyToll’s press release does not specify how toll collection of transit vehicles will be managed.
