Sorainen has represented Tallinna Linnatranspordi Aktsiaselts, a company fully owned by the City of Tallinn, in its purchase of compressed gas for natural gas-powered buses.
According to Sorainen, the buses are due to arrive in late summer 2020, and the gas supply will last for ten years. "The procurement also included building and operating two compressed gas stations," according to the firm.
According to Sorainen, "the cross-practice team of legal and tax experts prepared and conducted the public procurement proceedings, advising TLT and representing them in three public procurement disputes before the Public Procurement Dispute Committee and courts. However, the dispute committee and courts ultimately green-lit the project. The estimated value of the public procurement contract is EUR 80 million."
The Sorainen team was led by Senior Associate Kadri Harginen and included Senior Associates Kaspar Endrikson, Kaido Kunnapas, and Sandra Mikli, along with Partner Carri Ginter.
