The contract for conducting works on the construction of communal port „ Marina“ was concluded in June 2018 between Port Authority Vukovar and Marinetek Adriatic , Hidrogradnja from Osijek and Grasa from Zagreb. The project of construction of a communal port is foreseen to construct a pier on the main stream of the Danube River, directly downstream from the river Vuka, where the moorings for 140 vessels of up to 12 meters length is formed.
The mooring of the vessel is provided along both sides of the main pontoon gate located parallel to a coastline of 265 meters, divided into 4 segments and connected by associated gangways. At the 70 ° point on the longitudinal axis, the ‘fingers’ have been installed on the longitudinal axis, with transverse structures with floats, for the mooring of boats on both sides.
The second pontoon gate, which is 60 meters long, is set up as a protection from the debris and iceberg, and also serves as a base for a 27.5 meter long bridge.
Since the marina is located on the Danube River itself, with over six meters water oscillations, it was necessary to design and implement an adequate and secure anchorage of the entire structure. The pontoon installation was performed by setting 27 steel pilots with an outer diameter of 508mm and a thickness of 25mm. The pilots are made of special steel S355JR on the outside of corrosion-proof material, while the inside of the pilot is filled with concrete for added strength. The total height of the pilot is 23.6 meters, and in the bottom of the river are dug at height over 12 meters. The pontoons are mounted on pilots with special clamps with sliding elements to ensure unobstructed lifting and lowering of the gates at maximum loads.
This is the first installment of Marinetek ponton elements using steel pilots in Croatia, and the entire project has been completed in just three winter months, to the satisfaction of contractors and investors. It is certain that the port will be used by all the citizens of the town of Vukovar and the surrounding places that have boats and other vessels, and with the built breakwater and promenade this will give a whole new look to this part of the city.
