As Morski writes, last week, Plovput completed the installation of the second of five meteorological-oceanographic buoys at the pre-planned Palagruza site. The Palagruza buoy was anchored to a depth of 190 metres and the anchoring was done with two-part concrete blocks with a total weight of 30 tonnes.

The process surrounding the anchoring was performed using unique technology consisting of the controlled laying of the anchor blocks, developed within Plovput for the needs of this and all future similar projects.

The Palagruza buoy installation project is a strategic project of the Republic of Croatia in the field of meteorology, and is being implemented by the State Hydro-Meteorological Institute. They will provide very high-quality, reliable and timely data on the state of the atmosphere and the sea across the entire territory of the Republic of Croatia (

All of the above represents a historic moment for the meteorology and oceanography of the Republic of Croatia and is an undoubted contribution to raising the level of navigation safety in the territorial sea of ​​the Republic of Croatia on the whole.
