China road and bridge corporation wird die Peljesac Brücke bauen.
Für die chinesische Bauwirtschaft ist es der erste große Schritt auf den EU Markt und deren Projekte.
Es werden bis zu 2 Mrd. € kurzfristiger Investitionen von China in Kroatien erwartet für die Auswahl der Chinesen für dieses EU Projekt.
Langfristig könnte auch der Hafen Rijeka/Ploce und der Ausbau der Bahnstrecke Rijeka/Budapest im Rahmen der neuen chinesischen Seidenstraßen Offensive in den Fokus rücken.
Chinese consortium wins bid for Croatia's Peljesac bridge
ZAGREB, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese consortium led by China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) has won the bid for the construction of the first phase of Peljesac bridge and its access roads, a major infrastructure project in Croatian history, local road operator Harvatske Ceste (Croatian Roads) announced on Friday.
"Of the three bids submitted for the award of a public procurement contract, the bidding community was selected -- China Road and Bridge Corporation, CCCC Highway Consultants, CCCC Second Highway Engineering and CCCC Second Harbor Engineering with a bid price of 2.08 billion kuna (around 340 million U.S. dollars) without VAT and the construction period of 36 months," Croatian Roads said.
The project of the over-2,000-meter-long cable-stayed bridge, whose estimated value is over 400 million euros (485 million U.S. dollars) and will be partially sponsored by European Union fund, was opened for bidding in September 2017.
It had also attracted Austria's Strabag, whose offer was 2.62 billion kuna excluding VAT, and a joint offer of 2.55 billion kuna excluding VAT by the Italian company Astaldi and Turkey's IC Ictas (1 kuna equals 0.16 US dollars).
Crossing the Mali Ston Bay over the Adriatic Sea, the Peljesac bridge connects the southernmost Dubrovnik-Neretva County to the rest of the mainland, giving Croatia a continuous land link that bypasses the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Energiewirtschaftlich ist 2018 wohl endlich das entscheidende Jahr für das LNG Terminal auf der Insel Krk. Die Investition entspricht 380 Mio. € und verspricht mehr unabhängigkeit vom russischen Gas in diesem Teil Europas.
EU to invest €101mn in LNG terminal in Krk, Croatia
The EU has announced the signing of a grant agreement in which it will be committing €101.4mn (US$120mn) into the construction of an LNG terminal.
The terminal will be located on the Croatia’s Krk island, in the northern Adriatic.
The grant will contribute more than a quarter of the projects overall cost, which is estimated to be €383.6mn ($453.4mn).
The investment poses competition to Russia, which is currently Croatia’s largest LNG supplier.
The terminal will initially operate as an offshore floating storage and regasification unit (FRSU), hosting an annual capacity of 2bn cubic meters.
However, according to the European Commission the terminal will “increase the security of gas supply in central and south eastern Europe”.
The FSRU is to be moored permanently, and will have a jetty and connecting pipeline built to service the facility, allowing LNG carriers to be anchored.
“This investment will not only allow for the supply of natural gas to Croatia and Hungary; it will also increase the diversification of energy sources of central and south eastern Europe and give an economic lift to the region,” reported Miguel Arias Cañete, EU Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy.
