Tuca Zbarcea & Asociatii has successfully represented BMC Truck & Bus in two challenge proceedings arising from Bucharest Municipality's tender for the delivery of 100 electric buses and the related charging infrastructure.

According to the firm, BMC Truck & Bus, a producer of electric buses located in Ilfov County, has recently signed the contract with the Municipality of Bucharest on June 23, 2023, one year after the tender notice was made public and after the procurement procedure went through two rounds of challenges.

"The Municipality of Bucharest initially declared Turkish company Karsan Otomotiv Sanayi ve. Tikaret A.S. as the successful bidder. BMC Truck & Bus challenged the outcome of the procedure and had its competitor Karsan disqualified. Karsan filed a second challenge, which was rejected by the National Council for Solving Complaints," Tuca Zbarcea & Asociatii reported. "As a result, the Municipality of Bucharest and BMC Truck & Bus signed the contract for RON 290 million (net of VAT), which provides for the delivery of 100 buses within 10 months of signing."

Back in 2021, Tuca Zbarcea & Asociatii had also advised BMC Truck & Bus on tender procedures worth EUR 60 million regarding the supply of 151 electric buses for public transport in 11 municipalities in Romania (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on December 17, 2021).

The Tuca Zbarcea & Asociatii team included Partner Ionut Serban and Senior Associate Cristian Neagu.
