Marina Projects Ltd are pleased to confirm their ongoing relationship with Adriatic Marinas d.o.o. and have recently been appointed to manage the redevelopment of the fuel berth facility at the prestigious superyacht marina of Porto Montenegro, Tivat, Montenegro.

As part of the ongoing wider master plan redevelopment of the Tivat Arsenal by Adriatic Marinas, the existing fuel berth, which supplies in the order of 20 million litres of fuel each year, will be upgraded to include decommissioning of the old fuel tanks and provision of a new floating fuel storage facility. In addition, a new Harbour Master building will also be constructed.

Marina Projects has been appointed as the overall Project Manager for the scheme, with responsibility for co-ordination of the project team through design, construction and the testing and commissioning of the finished facility. The scope of works includes design and build of a new floating fuel storage facility of circa 2,600,000 litres (barge); maritime civil engineering of the berthing arrangements and M&E upgrades to the existing fuel jetty; design and construction of a new Harbour Master building and decommissioning of the existing land-based fuel storage facility. With design work commencing immediately, the current programme will see the building works completed by the end of 2022 and commissioning of the new fuel facility in early 2023, ready for the new season.
