Business developer Nordics

Founded in 1987 by four eager techies, Technolution is an independent Dutch provider of high-tech solutions. One of the founders, Jan van der Wel, still is managing director. Technolution is leading in advanced traffic management systems and is also active in the energy, infrastructure, science & industry markets. At our Gouda headquarters, forty kilometers south of Amsterdam, close to two hundred colleagues, all with technical bachelor's or master's degrees, mostly in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, work in multi-disciplinary teams, creating practical solutions that provide our clients with true added value. Using software and electronics, we create solutions for leading national and international corporate clients, public organizations and government agencies in the Netherlands, the UK and the Nordics.

New generation of ITS solutions for Copenhagen

In the past three years, Technolution has developed a new generation of ITS solutions (Intelligent Transport Systems) for the city of Copenhagen. The ITS Copenhagen project was an ambitious project, spearheaded by the realization of an advanced traffic management system for the city and the optimization of traffic flows on major roads. In addition, the project included the development of a number of innovative solutions for intelligent street lighting and road signs for cyclists and for smart, dynamic use of public space. All the different elements of the project are contributing to the objective of improving traffic flows in the city and achieving Copenhagen's climate objective, to reach CO2 neutrality by 2025.

Technolution Nordics

The ITS Copenhagen project has laid the foundation for our Technolution Nordics branch, which now has offices in Copenhagen and Stockholm. Our services and concepts are well in line with the Nordics market. We have the ambition to grow further in this region. This ambition not only lies in the further realization of our traffic management solutions in the Nordics, but also in the realization of similar solutions for other markets, e.g. smart energy networks, infrastructure and care.
