WORLD NEWS Nautical tourism complex in build in Pula CROATIA: The St Catherine Monuments nautical tourism complex in Pula is now in build. The long-awaited project is part of the Brijuni Riviera programme, which is considered of special importance both locally and nationally. Two marinas will be built as part of three phases. The three-part project comprises: St Katarina Marina; an extensive dry port, Luka 2, with hardstand, drystack and service docks; and a hotel complex on the peninsula. Marinetek has been appointed to supply and install all floating pontoons, mooring systems and extra equipment. The marina and dry port will be run by Kermas Istra as a 50-year concession. St Katarina Marina will have 400 berths and include capacity for vessels up to 80m (262ft) in length. In the initial stage, Marinetek is building four floating piers with a total of 276 berths for vessels up to 30m (98ft). Completion is planned for the end of this year. As the marina is being built, work is ongoing to renovate historic buildings to follow an overall project design completed by Pula-based COIN design studio. Pula, located on the southern tip of the Istrian peninsula, was formerly an historically important military harbour established by the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, and subsequently a central naval and shipbuilding hub in the North Adriatic. The move to transform the waterfront land, now that it is no longer used by the military, gives the city a chance to create an attractive tourist destination. The total value of the project is estimated at €65 million and, when complete, both marinas will offer 550 wet berths and 450 dry berths. First class upgrades at Welsh marina UK: Inland and Coastal Marina Systems (ICMS) has been appointed by The Marine and Property Group to help modernise its Port Dinorwic Marina on the North Wales coast. While adapting as much existing infrastructure as possible, ICMS will replace walkways and fingers with Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) pontoons. These will not only look attractive but will remain slipresistant when wet and will not rot, considerably reducing maintenance costs and increasing the lifespan of the system. “We are investing in several areas at Port Dinorwic Marina, including the installation of club standard washrooms, upgraded food and beverage outlets and common areas with the aim of ensuring our berth holders and visitors enjoy a first class experience for many years to come,” said Marine and Property Group director Christopher Odling-Smee. Port Dinorwic, purchased by the Group in 2017, is a 180-berth fullservice Grade 2 listed marina that offers swing moorings, a motorboat launching service and winter storage in addition to annual and seasonal berthing. Boat sales, boatyard service and engine servicing are also available onsite. 14 – September/October 2020
