Ericsson Nikola Tesla Delivers the Republic of Croatia State Border Control System
Ericsson Nikola Tesla, independently and as the leader of a consortium comprising Ericsson Nikola Tesla, Tehnomobil Securitas and Dat-Con, has signed an agreement with the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Croatia to deliver a state border control system. The contracted project amounts to nearly MHRK 48 (VAT excluded). The implementation is to start immediately and the realization is scheduled to end in January 2017.
Vlaho Orepić, Minister of the Interior of the Republic of Croatia, said: “We have signed a contract for the development of a ‘green’ border control system in Vukovar-Srijem County and Split-Dalmatia County. The border control system will ensure the monitoring of the situation on the very border and the surrounding area on both sides of the border, in all types of weather conditions, which will be achieved by combining several mutually connected detection systems. The agreed solutions will enable our country to fulfill a part of the prerequisites necessary for joining the Schengen area, which will in the future enable our citizens to freely and easily travel without border controls within EU Member States, which are already members of the Schengen area. Furthermore, it is also worth mentioning that the contracted works are 100% financed through the Schengen Facility Fund, rather than being incurred by the citizens of the Republic of Croatia.”
Gordana Kovačević, MSc, president of Ericsson Nikola Tesla, pointed out the following: “This contract for an integral realization of the solution for the control over the Republic of Croatia state border represents a strategically important project for Ericsson Nikola Tesla. We are pleased to continue excellent cooperation with the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Croatia. This represents an acknowledgment of our competences and expertize in the area which is strategically important for the Republic of Croatia, and it will benefit the citizens of our country.”
