Sve je počelo još 2009. godine pregovorima između potencijalnih norveških klijenata i nekoliko hrvatskih brodogradilišta, koji su se održali slijedom uspostave hrvatsko-norveške suradnje u sektoru mora i pomorstva temeljene na osnivanju Pomorskog Inovacijskog Centra - iNavis u Šibeniku i početku rada tvrtke CroNoMar. Optimistična ideja o izgradnji 15 katamarana u šibenskom NCP-u za inozemno tržište u razdoblju od pet godina, činila se tada kao realan cilj koji pruža nadu u opstanak male brodogradnje u Hrvatskoj.
Sada, nakon što je desetogodišnje razdoblje iza nas, u kolovozu 2019. godine svečano će u Norvešku biti isporučena 100 po redu katamaran proizveden u šibenskom remontnom brodogradilištu NCP. Od početne ideje, ova poslovna suradnja vezana za proizvodnju aluminijskih katamarana koji se kao radni brodovi koriste u norveškom sektoru marikulture, razvijala se znatno brže od svih očekivanja.
CroNoMar, mala tvrtka iz Šibenika u norveškom vlasništvu, postavila je kao strateški cilj poslovanja upravo povezivanje hrvatskih i norveških tvrtki i partnera u sektoru mora i pomorstva. Prvi rezultati bili su vidljivi već 2010. godine, kada je potpisan prvi brodograđevni ugovor za isporuku prvog aluminijskog katamarana sa šibenskim NCP-om.
Vjerujući od samog početka u uspjeh, CroNoMar je proteklih godina intenzivno radio na spajanju hrvatskih i norveških, ali i drugih stranih klijenata, prvenstveno promovirajući hrvatske proizvode vrhunske kvalitete te inovativnost i konkurentnost tvrtki u ovom sektoru u Hrvatskoj.
Neovisno o vrsti broda i njegovoj namjeni, svaki novi brod-proizvod je specifičan i radi se prema zahtjevima krajnjeg klijenta, rezultat čega je i zahtjevno podugovaranje poslova vezanih za izgradnju broda. CroNoMar je do sada posredovao u sklapanju preko 120 brodograđevnih ugovora koji se odnose na radne brodove, temeljem čega je i postignuta impresivna brojka od ukupno više od 100 ugovorenih katamarana iz NCP-a za norveško i druga svjetska tržišta marikulture u posljednjih deset godina.
Svi brodovi izgrađeni u Hrvatskoj koriste se u sektoru marikulture i ribarstva, a brodovi izgrađeni u Šibeniku koriste se u svakodnevnom poslovanju na ribogojilištima diljem svijeta.
Zahvaljujući postignutoj kvaliteti proizvoda i konkurentnosti u odnosu na druge proizvođače, omogućeno je daljnje planiranje i ugovaranje novih modela i vrsta brodova.
Osim u Šibeniku, brodovi se posredstvom CroNoMar-a za međunarodni sektor ribarstva i marikulture rade i u pulskom Tehnomontu, tvrtci Oštro iz Kaštela i tvrtci Intelligent Marine Sollution iz Šibenika.
Ni hrvatski ni strani partneri ne skrivaju zadovoljstvo razvojem suradnje. Novi tipovi plovila, unaprijeđeni modeli već izgrađenih plovila, novi ugovori sve to znači ne samo rast prihoda i zarade, već i novo zapošljavanje najrazličitijih profila radnika u hrvatskoj brodogradnji i inženjeringu.
The plan was to deliver 15 catamarans, and the contract for delivery of the 100th catamaran from the Šibenik shipyard NCP has just been signed!
It all began in 2009 with negotiations between potential Norwegian clients and several Croatian shipyards, which took place following the establishment of Croatian-Norwegian cooperation within the maritime sector based on the founding of the Maritime Innovation Center - iNavis in Sibenik and the beginning of the work of company CroNoMar. The optimistic idea to build 15 catamarans at NCP for foreign markets in the five-year period appeared then a realistic goal that gives hope for the survival of small shipbuilding in Croatia.
Now, after the ten-year period is behind us, in August 2019 a 100th catamaran produced at the NCP Shipyard in Sibenik will be officially delivered to Norway. From the initial idea, this business cooperation related to the production of aluminium catamarans used as working boats in the Norwegian aquaculture sector has developed considerably faster than all expectations.
CroNoMar, a small company from Sibenik in Norwegian ownership has set up the strategic goal of conducting business by connecting Croatian and Norwegian companies and partners within the maritime sector. The first results were visible already in 2010, when the first shipbuilding contract was signed for the delivery of the first aluminium catamaran with the shipyard from Šibenik - NCP.
Believing from the very beginning in the success, CroNoMar has worked intensively over the past years to join Croatian, Norwegian and other foreign customers, primarily promoting Croatian top quality products, innovativity and competitiveness of companies in this sector in Croatia.
Independent of the type of vessel and its purpose, each new vessel-product is specific and is tailored made according to the requirements of the end customer, a result of which is also an intensive negotiation of businesses related to the vessel construction. So far, CroNoMar has been involved in contracting over 120 shipbuilding contracts referring to the work boats, based on which an impressive figure of more than 100 contracted catamarans from NCP for Norwegian and other world aquaculture markets over the last ten years.
All vessels built in Croatia are used in the aquaculture and fisheries sector and the vessels built in Sibenik are used in daily operations on fish farms around the world.
Thanks to the achieved product quality and competitiveness compared to other manufacturers, further planning and contracting of new models and types of vessels was enabled.
In addition to Sibenik, hrough mediation of CroNoMar vessels for international fishery and aquaculture sector are built at Tehnomont in Pula, Oštro in Kastela, and Intelligent Marine Sollution from Sibenik.
Neither Croatian nor foreign partners are hiding their satisfaction with the development of cooperation. New types of vessels, upgraded models of already built vessels, new contracts mean not only revenue growth and earnings, but also new employment of the most diverse profiles of workers in Croatian shipbuilding and engineering.
