April 10, 2018

In the Marble Hall of the Governor’s Palace, contracts for development projects in Rijeka were signed, for which EUR 37.6 million was secured from EU funds.

With the presence of Minister of Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Oleg Butković, the Port Authority of Rijeka, headed by Director Denis Vukorepa marked the beginning of a new large investment cycle at the port of Rijeka by signing contracts with HŽ Infrastruktura as partners and contractors, and companies Kolektor Koling and Euroasfalt. These are two contracts for development projects for which funds are provided from the European Funds called the Connecting European Facilities (CEF), which enable the implementation of a unique modern information port system based on European ports and the significant development of intermodal connectivity Brajdica Container Terminal.
The investment cycle period in the port of Rijeka ends in 2021, when it is planned to realize six development projects funded by the European Fund CEF in a total investment of 115.5 million Euros, but also the completion of capital projects invested not by European funds. Realization of several strategic projects is expected; the construction of the Zagreb deep sea container terminal within the framework of the Rijeka Gateway project, investment in the D403 connection by the combined financing from the European funds and the state budget and ultimately the investment of the future concessionaire on the new container terminal in the transhipment equipment which will have a major impact on the capacity and efficiency of the port of Rijeka in the transport of containers and a significant increase in the share of railway transport of containers on the railway line.
