Starting on December 1st, 2023, a multi-lane free-flow automated classification and payment solution (AutoPASS) from Kapsch TrafficCom will go into operation on the car ferry between Bognes and Lødingen in Norway, 86 km driving distance southwest of Narvik.

The system will be operated over a period of ten years.

Mikael Hejel, Area Sales Manager at Kapsch TrafficCom, comments:

This is an important step towards easier and seamless toll payments for the ferry connections in the Norwegian arctic area. We are proud to cooperate with the ferry operator Torghatten Nord AS on the implementation, operation and maintenance of the system.

Trygve Tofte, Chief Financial Officer at Torghatten Nord, said:

Kapsch has provided the AutoPASS system at our ferry connection Halhjem-Sandvikvåg south of Bergen. Thanks to the system’s proven high operational performance there, we are assured to have a well-performing system also at Bognes-Lødingen.

The AutoPASS solution provided by Kapsch TrafficCom is especially suited for operation in the harsh conditions of the winter in northern Norway. High-performing camera sensors and transceivers measure the vehicle class, read the license plates and the AutoPASS on-board unit. That way, the manual operation at the ferry can be reduced to a minimum as the system will automatically identify and classify the vehicle and apply the correct toll charge.

The Bognes-Lødingen connection is only the most recent tolling project of Kapsch TrafficCom in Norway. The company also supplied and currently operates the AutoPASS systems for the Halhjem-Sandvikvåg ferry connection south of Bergen, the city tolling in Stavanger, the tolling at the Ryfast tunnels and the city tolling in Fredrikstad/Sarpsborg. In addition, Kapsch has recently trialed its innovative satellite-based Road User Charging technology together with partner Aventi in the greater Oslo area.
