Sibenik, an Adriatic port taken over by Turkey’s Yilport Holding as part of its acquisition of a Croatian fertiliser group, will be expanded to host large bulkers.

“The terminal will be dredged from 10 metres to 13 metres of draft to allow access for larger vessels up to panamax size,” Yilport said in a statement on Wednesday.

Yilport obtained Sibenik earlier this month as part of its acquisition of Petrokemija, Croatia’s largest fertiliser plant.
