- 2018 - Uljanik Shipyard (financial difficulties)
|January 2018||Other Incidents|
In mid-January 2018, the Uljanik Shipyard in Pula Croatia (building Scenic Eclipse) was reportedly in financial difficulties and its employees haven't been paid for months.
The Croatian government offered to guarantee an EUR 96 million loan to the shipyard as restructuring aid. The proposal was subject to European Commission approval. On january 23, 2018, the EUR 96 million state guarantee from the government was approved by the European Commission. The loan helped Uljanik shipyard to stay operational (meeting urgent liquidity needs) and complete its newbuilding projects (all new cruise vessels on order and under construction). EU's conditions for the state aid included finding a foreign investor.
In 2017, the shipyard received restructuring aid as part of the accession of Croatia to the European Union. However, the shipyard used most of the money to lower its shipbuilding prices. This led to full orderbook, but not much improvements. The yard is old and remained antiquated, despite its vessels' fine quality.
