Friday, 13 January 2012 | 00:00
Two ships produced in Croatian shipyard Brodosplit have been named amongst the most important vessels built in 2011 by the Significant Ships 2011 publication.
The publication is a specialised edition of The Naval Architect magazine published by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA), an international organisation that gathers representatives of the shipbuilding industry, educational institutions and naval organisations from 90 countries.
The two ships – Orange Star and Piana – were built without state subsidies at a profit, the shipyard located in the coastal town of Split said in a statement.
Orange Star is the biggest orange juice tanker, measuring 190 metres and is intended for the transport of cooled, fresh fruits. The vessel was finished in February 2011.
Piana is a ship intended for the transportation of passengers, personal and freight vehicles and hazardous cargo. It is the first ro-pax vessel built according to new regulations that ensure the highest standards of stability, security and ecological protection.
The ship was handed over to the client in December 2011, Croatian Radio Television (HRT) reports.
