Q-Free has been awarded a 130 MNOK contract to upgrade Ascendi’s Multi-Lane Free-Flow (MLFF) tolling system in Portugal. The system consists of almost 100 charging points that were initially installed by Q-Free in 2009 and 2011. Under the new contract, Q-Free will replace all key roadside modules such as DSRC transceivers, camera systems, lane controllers etc. with new and upgraded solutions. Deliveries will start in 2020 and be completed in the first part of 2022. 

– It is a great honor for Q-Free to be chosen by Ascendi to upgrade their roadside system. In sum it means that we have met expectations related to performance of the old system and that we in recent years have managed to innovate and update our offering to now make it attractive for the customer to upgrade. We look forward to continuing our close cooperation and partnership with Ascendi and ensuring that they will have one of the most effective and efficient electronic toll collection systems in the world, says Håkon Volldal, President & CEO of Q-Free.
