EUR 36.5 mn contract on new warehouse in Port of Rijeka inked

A HRK 273.6 million contract on building a background warehouse at the Skrljevo terminal in the free zone of the Port of Rijeka was signed on Tuesday by executives of the consortium of companies that will build the facility and by executives of the Port of Rijeka.

The contract stipulates the reconstruction and upgrading of the existing warehouse facilities and the construction of a new infrastructure network including new roads and space for transport, sewage, and water supply system and a railroad.

The work is to start next month and is to last 14 months.

Rijeka Port Management Board president Vedran Devcic said at the ceremony in Rijeka that the funds for this project were ensured through recapitalisation and issuance of a new bond last year. In this way, the company collected some 300 million kuna.

The Croatian Minister of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure, Oleg Butkovic, said that the project was the result of the work of government authorities, the authorities of Rijeka County and the City of Rijeka.
