Worth over 410,000 euros, the contract was signed with Euroelektronika after the company won the public tender. Once the system is installed, border guards at Neringa border crossing will be able to monitor and record objects crossing or nearing the border, and visual material from the whole system will be sent to a stationary control center.

The company will not only install the system but will also train border guards who will be able to train other operators and specialists.

Under the plan, cameras along the whole length of the 1.96-km border should be installed by the end of this year.

Now in Lithuania, border guards use modern equipment to monitor some 56 percent of the European Union's external border Lithuania is responsible for, the SBGS said.
