The Slovenian group Kolektor Construction has won a multimillion contract to build a container terminal and renovate a historic warehouse in the Croatian port of Rijeka.

Kolektor Construction said it had been picked as the sole contractor in an international call to tender that attracted several companies from the region.

The project, which is slated for completion in 2025, involves the construction of the container terminal with rail tracks spanning 110,000 square metres.

The renovation of Warehouse 22, which covers an area of 16,100 square metres, will include the reconstruction of the basement, ground floor and four floors, taking into account measures to preserve historical and cultural heritage.

The company said the project will involve the excavation of over 29,000 square metres of material, the use of over 85,000 square metres of geotextile, the installation of 32,500 square metres of concrete, 2,300 tonnes of reinforcement and 290 tonnes of steel. Over 18,500 square metres of asphalt will be laid.

A ceremony on 13 September marked the start of the construction work on the container terminal with officials underscoring that the project will significantly contribute to the development of the logistics infrastructure in the region and give a new impetus to the Rijeka port.

Kolektor Construction is currently finishing up the construction of the state road between Škurinje and the port of Rijeka, a project estimated at more than €75 million.

It is also working on a €35 million reconstruction of a basin at the Rijeka port, €26.47 million urban projects on the islands of Cres and Lošinj and a €77.8 million bypass project around Novi Vinodolski.
