Poland Gdansk Port Infrastructure
Gdańsk, the largest port in the Baltic Sea, is undergoing construction of a deep-water quay for container ships.
The investment, which is scheduled to be launched in mid-2024, is to increase the handling capacity of Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) Gdańsk by almost half to 4.5 million twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) per year. DCT Gdańsk and the Port of Gdańsk Authority confirmed that the lease for the next container terminal at the port has been awarded to the incumbent operator DCT Gdańsk. DCT Gdańsk operates T1 and T2 at Gdańsk, which have a total capacity of 3M TEU per annum.
With the construction of the new terminal “Baltic Hub 3,” a third deep-water quay located at the new port area will be created, increasing the handling capacity of DCT Gdańsk by 1.5M TEU, to 4.5M TEU. The investment is worth $466M. The third deep-water quay will be 717m long with a depth of 18.0m, and 36-ha of yard will be built. Construction is scheduled to start in late 2022 and the project also involves the purchase of seven quay cranes that can handle the world’s largest vessels, and 20 semi-automated rail mounted gantry cranes (RMGs) for the container yard, which will be remotely operated by operators located in ergonomically designed workspaces.
The Port of Gdańsk has been an ongoing construction project in recent years. An important investment to the development of the Inner Port will soon be completed, related to the deepening of the fairway and the modernization of more than 5 km of quays, and another, the continuation of this investment, is already being planned. The project is called “Improving Access to the Port of Gdańsk – Modernization of Fairway 2.” Within the framework of this undertaking, it is planned to extend four quays of the Inner Port with a total length of 1,916 meters together with the railway infrastructure. The Wiślane and Bytomskie Quays are located along the Port Channel, whereas the Ore Quay III and partly the Coal Quay are in the Mining Basin. The project has all the necessary documents: design and environmental documents, as well as consents and permits. The total value of the project is approx. $117 million, of which the EU co-financing amounting to 85 percent of the costs will constitute more than $100 million. The planned investment implementation period is 2022-2026.
