Study documentation and an application for registering the largest infrastructural project for protection against the harmful action of water in the last decade were prepared for the Hrvatske vode, as the contracting authority and investor.
The EU co-financed study documentation was completed for Hrvatske vode (Croatian Waters), as the end-user, relating to the largest system of flood control in the Republic of Croatia. The project covers the central protected region of the Republic of Croatia along the Sava River over an area of 800 square kilometres.
Work by the VPB company on developing a simulation model for Srednje posavlje has lasted over 10 years. In fact, the latest version (version 4) has just been completed.
Investments in irrigation from the Rural Development Program for the Republic of Croatia for the period 2014 – 2020
For the first time in the Republic of Croatia, EU irrigation projects were registered for co-financing through measure 4.3.1 “Investments in Basic Public Irrigation Infrastructure”. VPB compiled the study documentation for registering four public irrigation projects covering the total area of 1,029 ha.
Modernisation of the Sava river dikes from Račinovci to Nova Gradiška – preparation of project documentation
As the leading member of the consortium in cooperation with renowned Croatian companies, VPB has contracted to prepare detailed project documentation for constructing the largest infrastructural EU project in flood control on Croatian territory. The primary goal of the modernization project for the Sava river dikes foreshore is improving stability of the foundation ground in the embankment footing and more effective implementation of flood protection measures at the section from Račinovci to Nova Gradiška covering the total length of 236 km.
The mystery solved surrounding the reduction of the water wave peak on the section of the Sava River from the border with Slovenia to Podsused
It is believed that the peak of the hydrograph is reduced by 10-15% on the respective section of the Sava River (Source: Vodoprivredna osnova of the City of Zagreb) which is beneficial not just for the City of Zagreb, but also for the entire downstream flood protection system.
The study documentation has been completed for the flood protection projects for the Kupa river catchment supported by EU funds. Although the project has incorporated a significantly wider area, existing issues mostly focus on the Karlovac and Sisak region.
