Completion of Construction of Mihačeva Draga Waste Sorting Plant near Rijeka
Mihačeva Draga Waste Sorting Plant
Works on the project “Plant for sorting separately collected waste (sorting plant) at the location Mihačeva Draga” worth more than 36 million HRK have been successfully completed. This is the first such plant for sorting separately collected waste in Croatia, which will enable greater efficiency and increase the value of useful raw materials.
INSTITUT IGH, d.d. participated in implementing the project by providing Project Management services during the construction in close cooperation with the client City of Rijeka. All works were performed following the required parameters (deadline, price and scope). With the realization of this vital project, IGH has once again proven its expertise in leading and managing projects funded by EU funds providing services such as:
- Development and monitoring of the Project Implementation Plan;
- Construction project management;
- Risk management;
- Coordination of third parties;
- Administrative and technical management of the Project;
- Services for preparation of the client’s report to the competent authorities;
- Services during the audit and/or control.
Sustainable development and environmental protection
The project aims to increase the recycling rate of municipal waste, reduce the amount of waste disposed of in landfills, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions into the environment.
The sorting plant was built on a total area of 5,636 m2. It consists of a hall where the recycling plant is located and a canopy where bales are sorted, recycled material stored and the collection vehicles weighed. Solar panels have been installed on the roof of the sorting hall. They produce electricity for the needs of the sorting plant and thus contribute to environmental preservation.
The project for the construction of a sorting plant in Mihačeva Draga was implemented within the Operational Program Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014-2020. It is co-financed by the European Structural and Investment Funds – European Regional Development Fund in 85% of the total value of all eligible costs of project implementation.
