MILAN, Jan. 30 (Class Editori) - DBA, through its subsidiary Unistar LC doo, has signed an agreement for the supply and IT support of the University Clinical Center in Ljubljana (Slovenia). Unistar, thanks to a tender, extended the agreement for the supply and the IT support of the University Clinical Center of the city for further 48 months, including additional services for a total amount of € 4.3 million within 4 years.
The assignment, in line with the forecasts explained in the Industrial Plan, provides for the supply of services for the hardware maintaining, antivirus software licenses and Help Desk assistance. The expected marginality of this assignment should be in line with that expressed in the Industrial Plan 2019-2023 for the ICT segment.
"Thanks to this agreement, an important reference related to ICT services in the healthcare sector is added to the references of DBA Group", Raffaele De Bettin, CEO of DBA Group stated. "The business opportunities in this sector in Slovenia are growing, in fact last year we had already signed an agreement through the subsidiary Itelis with the hospital of Izola (Slovenia), in order to obtain the verticalisation and implementation of ERP SAP. This agreement confirms our growth strategy in the Balkans, thanks to our recent takeover of UnistarPRO."
The engineering and ICT company based in Vento, founded and managed by the four De Bettin brothers, is one among the companies specialized in civil engineering which has decided to strongly focus on the countries related to the Belt and Road Initiative, in particular on Balkans, as their development strategy.
DBA has been active in Azerbaijan for a long time and it is now working on the design of the new harbor in the Capital city on Caspian Sea. DBA is widening the boundary of its activities in the whole area, becoming the Italian technological and engineering outpost in one of the key areas between Eastern and Western countries.
Last year, DBA Group established a new outpost in Romania. Thanks to the subsidiary SJS Engineering, the Group won the tender to provide technical assistance for the management of the project "Reducing the coastal erosion" (2014-2020), a European initiative to ensure the adaptation to Climate Change, as well as the prevention and management for the erosion risk in the areas along the Dead Sea coastline.
"Thanks to this new assignment, the Group is expanding its action area into another seaport and at the service of the Belt and Road Initiative, and we are going ahead with the strategic project of our growth opportunities abroad", as Francesco De Bettin, DBA chairman and Raffaele's older brother, stated on that occasion. "Our competences and our engineering services will be put at the service of the preventive measures related to Climate Change."
The supply of the software used to manage the railway manoeuvre has been assigned to Port Rail Ltd, the terminal operator belonging to BMF Burgas Group in Bulgaria, and this opportunity is opening the doors of the market also in Bulgaria.
The provided software solution is able to manage and monitor, in real time, the manoeuvring and positioning phases of railway wagons inside the port area, to allow the automatic and live communication among the players involved in logistical processes and to optimize resources, consumption and performances, and thereby increasing the service capacity. The DBA Group software will contribute to the digitalization of port processes flowing along the BRI.
In terms of ports, one of the DBA business focus - which is consultant and supplier for the network activities of most of the Adriatic seaports - has been the most recent agreement signed between the subsidiary Actual IT and Transport Malta, the Government authority for the development of the means of transport in the country.
The agreement aims at creating and supplying the system, which can quickly and clearly connect all the players involved in several respects in the logistic node operations in Malta.
