CROATIA – THE 'NEW CO.ED.MAR.' COMPANY IS AWARDED A CONTRACT FOR 10.4 MILLION EUROS FOR THE MODERNISATION OF THE PORT OF RIJEKA
A contract was recently signed between the Port Authority in Rijeka and the company of Chioggia 'Nuova CO.ED.MAR. S.r.l.' for the works that will affect a 100 meters section of the southern part of the port terminal in Braida. The Italian company will restructure the quay by deepening the seabed in order to align with the seabed of the 'north' portion of the terminal, thus allowing the mooring of ships of greater tonnage.
The amount of works awarded to the New CO.ED.MAR. already appreciated in Rijeka as the contracting company for the construction of the modern 'Zagreb Pier Deep Sea Terminal' between 2012 and 2019 is 10.4 million euros. These works will strengthen the competitiveness of the port of Rijeka, which is already the deepest in the northern Adriatic.
The contract awarded to CO.ED.MAR. is part of the project of modernisation of the port facilities in Rijeka, worth a total of 73.7 million euros, which includes the extension and modernisation of the port terminal and the construction of a new motorway link between the port and the Rijeka ring road, with completion of the works scheduled for the end of 2022.
