CONSTRUCTION OF LNG TERMINAL ON KRK IS IN PROGRESS

Zagreb, 6 September 2019 - A few hundred meters of airline distance away from the large white Janaf petroleum products storage tanks on the Island of Krk, Croatian LNG terminal is rising from the sea. It is located in the area of the former plastic industry Dina, on the site of an old jetty that was not long ago used to supply ethylene for the production of polyethylene. Unfortunately, Dina infamously failed and that old jetty was mostly ruined. At the moment, work is successfully progressing on the construction site of a new remarkable jetty for the LNG terminal on Island Krk. A number of tasks, which are a prerequisite for the successful operation of the terminal, have been under considerable pressure for a long time, but obviously with a lot of success: the Final Investment Decision was adopted at the end of January and the construction site was opened in April, two days after the building permit was issued. Contractors, the consortium of economic entities consisting of Pomgrad, GP Krk and STSI are fully engaged in concreting piles - pillars on which jetty of the Terminal, which is actually an LNG vessel or a Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU), will be constructed. As we were able to see on the location, piles concreting began in late May and in early September, 37 of 164 pillars up to 24 meters high and up to 1,8 meters in diameter were concreted into limestone rocks on the seabed. So-called concrete dolphins will be laid on piles, to which the vessel-floating terminal is moored.
