Mart Suurkask, CEO of Bercman: “In the area of our proprietary products, the fourth quarter was characterized by the completion of various projects. In Põlva, we completed a unique smart road that is the first of its kind in the world, and in Kohtla-Järve, we piloted a hybrid energy solution for smart pedestrian crosswalks. We are almost ready of starting the export of these solutions. In terms of development services, we focused on diversifying our client portfolio in the fourth quarter. As a result of our consistent sales efforts, we believe we have established a strong customer base for the year 2024.”
In addition to serving Estonian customers, development services were exported to the markets of Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Singapore and the United States in the fourth quarter. In cooperation with Aerones, a Latvian developer of wind turbine maintenance robots, funding (EUR 80 000) was obtained for the development of a wind turbine lightning protection system maintenance robot under the European Union’s Silicon Eurocluster initiative. In the provision of development services, the narrower focus was on the defence sector, in connection with which we participated in the Estonian Defence and Space Industry Information Day in Paldiski. Two new clients from the defence sector were added to our client portfolio in the last quarter. Our development team was visited by a delegation from the Gyeongnam Technopark in Korea, to map out and promote collaboration opportunities with high-tech companies in South Korea.
