“Many thanks for the good care and support! We made it! Today we connected our last station to the internet and now there are six more Lufft stations in Estonia. I hope that they are as reliable as other equipment made in Germany we have used”,

reported Stanislav Metlitski, project manager of Teede Tehnokeskus, on 26 November, 2018 – shortly after the completion of the weather stations.

The installation of two further stations for the Estonian Road Administration is planned for this year.
