SWEDEN: Trafikverket has awarded Alstom a €66m contract to design, supply and maintain an Iconis traffic management system covering its entire network.

The contract announced on September 30 will run for eight years, with an option for a further nine, and has been awarded as part of a wider project which is intended to improve punctuality and capacity.

‘We are very pleased to have met all the demanding commercial and technical criteria set by Trafikverket’, said Per Öster, Managing Director for Alstom Transport in the Nordic region. He said Iconis was a ‘mature and well established’ product, which can integrate network-wide monitoring, control, optimisation and resource planning.
