SOLID WASTE INCINERATION PLANT – SWIP SOLID WASTE INCINERATION PLANT – SWIP Following the international tender for the services of a chief project engineer/consultant, the proposal submitted by a consortium composed of Elektroprojekt d.d. of Zagreb and Novum/UTW of Vienna was selected as the preferred bid. On 9 October 2001, Čistoća d.o.o. (Zagrebs waste disposal company) and the Consortium concluded a Service Contract for the Chief Project Engineer/Consultant. On the basis of this Contract and a study entitled Multicriteria Analysis for the Selection of One of the Two Sites Proposed for the Construction of the Waste Incinerator, the Commission has decided that the Incinerator should be constructed at the Žitnjak-East site. We should note that the Waste Incineration Plant will also be used for the treatment of sludge generated in the Central Waste Water Treatment Plant. According to estimates the annual volume of this sludge would stand at around 70,000 tons. The total value of this investment is estimated at 160,000,000.00.

(Zagreb Electric Tramway, Ltd.). The total value of this investment has been estimated at 160,000,000.00.
University Hospital Project Value – 265 mil University Hospital Project Value – 265 mil
MUNICIPAL HOSPITAL The construction of a new municipal hospital under the name of Zagreb University Hospital (SBZ) commenced in 1986 at the location in Novi Zagreb. However, construction works were discontinued in 1993, and in 1998 the Croatian Government passed a decision approving the Programme to Resume the Construction of the University Hospital complex. The gross developed area of the completed portion of the complex is approximately 120,000 m2. According to plans, this area should ensure the accommodation of approximately 1,000 hospital beds. According to a proposal which gained support from the Croatian Ministry of Health, the program to convert the Zagreb University Hospital complex would consist of three spatial and functional components: a health programme, a programme to move certain Croatian institutes operating within the health sector, and a commercial programme. The value of this investment has been estimated at 265,000,000,00.
Sljeme/Medvednica Mountain Project Value – 9 mil Sljeme/Medvednica Mountain Project Value – 9 mil

The total value of the works was 2,800,000.00. The most important – and also the most expensive – component of this Project will be the modernisation of the existing Sljeme Cableway. The new cableway would follow the route of the existing one, which was constructed in 1963. However, the valley station would be shifted southward, next to the tram terminal at Dolje, which would make the cableway more accessible to citizens who use public transport for their trips to Sljeme. The total value of this investment has been estimated at 9,000,000.00.
