Reaching the top with experienced partners
Pomgrad company, one of the oldest construction companies in Croatia, was founded in 1947 and specialized from its beginnings in marine construction.
In 2011 the company got a job in the most attractive location in Split, Croatia, working on the West coast project. The investor plans on constructing 150m of public benches in the pedestrian zone and 550m of underwater lighting along the coast. The plan also includes a two-track road 6,5m wide, a square, a fountain, a bicycle track, several bistros and a significant square footage of green areas.
Nikola Jenjic, Technical Manager of Mechanization Group: “Our work on the project started from its earliest phase – in June 2011. The main challenge was the construction, transport and laying down of the 6m cubic concrete blocks whose task will be to break the waves and protect the boats which will be moored in the West coast marina.”
Atlas Copco entered into the project when the new HB 3600 breaker arrived to the construction site. “We used it to break the large underwater rocks and reach the necessary depth and, consequently, dig and prepare the foundations for the laying down of the concrete blocks forming the coastal wall.
The cooperation with Atlas Copco is excellent, not just now but always has been. Atlas Copco is a renowned brand with products that have proven themselves over and over again and the Pomgrad company has always appreciated that because we need high-quality machines. There is a mutual understanding, there is a will to help and react quickly.”
