In the period to 2015, a total of 10 Vetaphone Corona systems were installed and a further 9 were added between 2015 and 2017. These included four systems type VE1B-A (PF2-10) 1520 QC station and 1.5 kW generator, three systems type VE1B-A (DS)620 QC, with a specially design station with 1 kW generator, and two systems type VE1B-A (DS)1120 QC station and 1.5 kW generator.
