Ploce Port Bulk Terminal Project



Project number:


Business sector:


Notice type:


ESIA disclosed:

02 Jun 2006



Approval date:

05 Dec 2006

Purpose of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments

EUR 10 million loan to the Port of Ploce Authority. The proceeds of the EBRD loan will be used to part finance the construction of a new bulk cargo terminal at the Port of Ploce. This will enable the Port to eliminate existing operational bottleneck in handling of the bulk cargo and increase its capacity from the present 2.8 million tonnes to approximately 7-9 million tonnes to meet the current and future market demands. The port will still be considered small to mid-size by international standards. The project is part of the Ploce Port expansion programme undertaken by the Croatian Government to facilitate the regional integration along corridor Vc. The programme is co-financed by the World Bank. By removing the operational bottleneck at the entry to Corridor Vc, the Project contributes to the integration of the regional economy. It provides the cheapest transportation route for bulk commodities. The project will also support commercialisation of port infrastructure management and establishment of market based relationships between the port authority and the port operator in Ploce.
