May 17, 2022

The Adriatic 42 Company, which intends to transform the former Shipyard in Bijela into a premium location for the overhaul and maintenance of superyachts, enjoys the full support of the Government of Montenegro and its Prime Minister Dritan Abazović, it was said at yesterday's meeting.

The meeting was attended by Prime Minister Dritan Abazović, Minister of Ecology, Spatial Planning and Urbanism, Ana Novaković Đurović, President of the Board of Directors of Adriatic 42, dr Rado Antolović, and Advisor for Relations with the Government of Montenegro, Vladimir Perunović. 

“We are pleased that, in the first weeks of the new Prime Minister's term, we were given the opportunity to present the project plan of the Consortium consisting of Adriatic Marinas-Porto Montenegro and DryDocks World Dubai. Our main goal is to make Bijela recognized as a location where mega and super yachts can receive premium service. It is important to us that the Prime Minister himself, as well as his team, understand the importance and perspective of the project, which will, without doubt, change the economic and tourist situation in Montenegro,“ said the President of the Board of Directors of Adriatic 42, dr Rado Antolović.

As Antolović announced at the meeting, the company Adriatic 42 has so far invested 40 million euros in the project.

“Such an important project implies the best possible equipment. That is why we procured a 180-meter floating dock, which is 37 meters wide, with 10,000 ton lifting capacity, allowing it to accommodate the world's largest yachts. Also, in addition to the dock and numerous other investments, we have procured a new 720 ton capacity travel lift, the largest in the region. Our main task and goal is to bring reliability and high technical standards for all our clients in the future, through smart investments,” said Antolović.

In a conversation with the Prime Minister and the line minister, Antolović announced that over 20 people from Montenegro have currently been employed on the project, while the number will constantly grow.

“Our goal is for many local experts from various fields to get their opportunity and give their expert contribution. We know what tradition the former Shipyard in Bijela had, and we want to use all the professional potential and jointly transform this place and return it to its former glory. Also, we have already established cooperation with numerous local contractors, who will also be part of this great story for Montenegro,“ stated Antolović.

The President of the Board of Directors of Adriatic 42 stressed at the meeting that special attention will be paid to environmental protection, as new and modern equipment will enable more energy efficient business and smart use of alternative energy sources.

As Antolović concludes, the vision of the Adriatic 42 Company has definitely been endorsed, as acknowledged by the President of Montenegro, Milo Đukanović, who also gave his full support to the project.
