The new agreement marks a continuation to six years of cooperation between Algol Technics and the Finnish Transport Agency. During this period, in addition to maintenance services, Algol Technics has overseen the installation of new passenger information screens and public address systems, as well as fibre optic cabling for this equipment.

We are extremely satisfied that we are able to continue to serve as a partner to the Finnish Transport Agency for the next agreement period,” says Martin Evers, Managing Director of Algol Technics.

“The reliability of rail passenger information equipment, i.e. information screens and public address systems at train stations, is of paramount importance to rail passengers. This can be ensured with the help of a reliable and expert maintenance provider, which Algol Technics has been. As a result, it is excellent news for the Finnish Transport Agency that Algol Technics won the extremely competitive public tender and in so doing ensured seamless continuation to our previous agreement,” says Kimmo Turunen, Senior Officer at the Finnish Transport Agency.
