Croatian shipbuilding continues to be largely ignored or at the very best underestimated and neglected by the Croatian state. Pula’s ailing Uljanik shipyard and Rijeka’s equally problematic 3 Maj shipyard haven’t been the subject of happy headlines and good news for a long time now, leading all and sundry to believe the worst of Croatia’s shipbuilding industry – which once flourished. Not everything is so bleak, though, at least not for busy Brodosplit.

As Novac/Jozo Vrdoljak/ writes on the 15th of December, 2019, a brand new delivery of a mega section for a passenger cruiser under construction in Monfalcone, Italy’s largest Fincantier shipyard, has begun this morning at the famous Brodosplit shipyard in Dalmatia.

The huge transport from Brodosplit regards a large section of the bow of a vessel’s hull which is twelve metres high, a massive forty meters wide and weighing an incredible 480 tons, and it is also properly equipped with elements for mooring and anchoring.

”Brodosplit’s” company, Transportna sredstva d.o.o., which has perfected itself for lifting and transporting extremely heavy loads, released a snapshot of the unusual transport that certainly isn’t a daily sight in Brodosplit or anywhere in Croatia.

The section is narrow and high, with a centre of gravity of seven meters, so the highly demanding process of embarkation was done with two self-propelled modular transports which boast a large load capacity, each of which had 26 axles, which made one conveyor as long as 36 metres in total.
