The builder GH Holding and a group of other Slovenian construction companies signed a deal on Monday with public utility company Bikarac from Croatia’s Šibenik on the construction of a EUR 26.5 million waste management centre, the biggest regional centre in the country.
Roland Tušar of GH Holding said winning the deal in an international public call for applications was in line with the company’s long-term strategy of expanding its presence in Croatia.
The EU-funded project, which is expected to take 30 months, includes the construction of a modern facility for mechanical biological treatment of waste, support facilities, a compositing plant, road, substation and the supply of vehicles to be used at the centre.
Among the companies in the consortium are also VGP Drava Ptuj and Pomgrad. The signing of the contract was attended by Croatian Environment Minister Tomislav Ćorić.
