Prime Minister Zoran Milanović attended tanker launching and signing of construction contract for six ships at the Brodotrogir shipyard

After Ms. Jelena Manojlović, President of the Brodotrogir d.d. Supervisory Board, had cut the ribbon with the champagne, the chemical tanker under the temporary name Hull 325 slipped into the sea from the Trogir slipway, and the keel for Hull 326 was laid.
Numerous guests, including the Prime Minister Zoran Milanović, with ministers Gordan Maras and Arsen Bauk, attended the launching.
In his speech the Prime Minister Zoran Milanović referred to the general state of affairs in Croatian shipbuilding. He believes that there are positive developments in shipbuilding, although the rehabilitation programme is still in progress. Ships are being built, but with one key difference with respect to the construction before the privatisation, which was paid by taxpayers - today's construction brings profit to investors and ship operators.  
He also added: "I believe that shipbuilding will survive and make money. This is not only a matter of workplaces, although they are, of course, very important, it is also a matter of identity. This is Croatia."
"This is not the first launching at Brodotrogir, but this tanker is special because it has been built according to the latest innovative technologies whose application enables fuel savings up to 25 %", said the Brodotrogir owner, Mr. Danko Končar, who was more than satisfied with the atmosphere pervading Brodotrogir d.d. today.
The two chemical tankers were contracted by the maritime company Trogir Maritime at the Hrvatska brodogradnja Trogir d.o.o. (HBT) shipyard, which also belongs to the Brodotrogir group. In addition, contracts on the exploitation of those ships after their construction were signed with a company from the Norwegian Blystad group.
As for the Hull 325, it is specialised for the carriage of chemical and oil products, it has a deadweight of 49.500 metric tons, the length overall of 184 m and the width of 32.20 m. It is driven by an electronic MAN B&W low-speed engine with the power of 8000 kW, which reaches the speed of 14.5 nodes. The installation of this type of engine in combination with a large propeller enables maximum savings in fuel consumption.
After the launching, the keel was laid for Hull 326, allowing Brodotrogir continued production, and enabling the workers to keep working in the following period.
Also, the companies Trogir Maritime and OFL from the Netherlands signed a contract today on the joint venture and the construction of 6 offshore supply piping vessels. The construction of these ships should start in April 2015 and ships should be built within the following two to three years.
Ships are intended for operations on offshore fields in the North Sea.
This deal represents an entry into a brand-new market for us and constitutes a new segment in shipbuilding production.
The total value of the project is about 270 million dollars.
