Technolution places Nordic office in Copenhagen
The Dutch company, Technolution B.V., has won a DKK 47m ITS contract with the City of Copenhagen. Technolution is now establishing a Nordic office in Denmark and is planning an R&D centre for smart city solutions.
Technolution has won the City of Copenhagen’s tender for a DKK 47m contract to implement intelligent traffic systems (ITS). The tender is part of the Copenhagen’s widely scoped ITS action plan and is based on experiences gained from pilot projects and public-private innovative partnerships carried out in 2013-2014.
Technolution took part in a pilot about green waves for cyclists together with local Danish partners. After the pilot project, Technolution was lead in the tender, joining forces with a number of Danish partners such as Hermes Traffic Intelligence, InfraTeam, COWI, V!Gør, ITS Teknik and Jesper K Thomsen.
Denmark – a good test bed for global solutions
Winning the tender, Technolution is now establishing a Nordic office in Copenhagen. Moreover, Technolution is planning to open an R&D centre with focus on smart city solutions.
For an innovative company like Technolution, Denmark is an attractive country for business development. It is a frontrunner in demanding advanced solutions and therefore a good test bed for developing future solutions for a global market. This is why we plan to expand our business in Denmark by opening an office and an advanced development centre within the coming 2-5 years.
