New Radio Centre Built for Croatian Air Traffic Control

ZAGREB, 8 Dec, 2021 - Croatian Air Traffic Control (HKZP) said on Tuesday it had successfully completed an investment of HRK 9 million (€1.2m) in the Northern Adriatic VHF/UHF radio centre, which will increase the total capacity of its radio air traffic control system.

The new radio centre is situated on Mount Guslica in Risnjak National Park and will be used by the Area Control Centre Zagreb and approach control units.

It was built in cooperation with Risnjak National Park, which will use it as a field station for its monitoring service.

The radio centre will ensure the provision of safe, efficient and regular air traffic control services and responsible and rational management of national infrastructure resources, the HKZP said in a press release.

It was built to environmental protection standards and forms an integral part of the protected wooded area of the Gorski Kotar region, .

The investment is part of a HRK 25 million (€3.3m) project aimed at upgrading the operating system. It was launched to ensure that the infrastructure can support the expected increase in air traffic in Croatia in the years ahead, the HKZP said.

The European Commission covered 85 per cent of the costs of the equipment and infrastructure with funding from the Connecting Europe Facility.
