Cancellation of the Põlva Smart Road procurement and organisation of new procurement

Bercman Technologies AS (hereinafter “Bercman”) announces that yesterday, Põlva rural municipality government declared invalid the Põlva Smart Road procurement by a decision of the contracting authority and will carry out a new public procurement.  

The procurement is declared invalid due to a violation by the contracting authority during the procurement procedure stage with regard to the time limits for filing requests. 

Mart Suurkask, CEO of Bercman Technologies AS: “We were the winners of the procurement the first time and we intend to participate in the procurement again. I hope that despite the slight detour, the rural municipality can soon move forward with building the smart road and set a good example for other cities in Estonia as well as other countries on how to slow traffic and influence smart road users to reduce their speed.”  

The tender submitted by Bercman and declared as the winner of the procurement on 29.03.2022 met all the procurement conditions. Bercman published a stock exchange notice on winning the Põlva Smart Road procurement on 30.03.2022.  

Bercman is a deep-tech company founded in 2016 which focuses on developing and selling products and technologies that improve traffic safety.  The company’s mission is to eliminate all traffic related fatalities and its vision is to become an internationally leading partner on the smart city solutions market. We also wish to contribute to the spread of self-driving vehicles. Considering the future prospects of deploying automatic and autonomous vehicles, the company believes that the sector’s development has high potential and provides great opportunities for a rapid global expansion of the company.   Krakul OÜ, an internet of things and autonomous systems developer, is a member of the Bercman group.
