15th Days of the Croatian Chamber of Civil Engineers were organized by the Croatian Chamber of Civil Engineers (HKIG) in Opatija. As part of this year’s event, the annual awards for excellence in construction were awarded for the 11th time – Kolos 2021.
In the category “hydrotechnics”, the award was given to Mr. Josip Prcela, a civil engineer, for the project of the Floating terminal for liquefied natural gas on the island of Krk.
The peculiarity of this project is that the design engineer has designed a structure that takes extremely large horizontal forces (ships, waves, earthquakes) without oblique and horizontal elements, so non-standard technical solution has achieved a significant step forward in the profession.
