The Port of Gdansk will modernize 2 quays

By Marek Grzybowski

The total length of the quays undergoing reconstruction is over 450 m. These will be the Rudowe and Bytomskie quays.
The investment is part of a project financed by the Connecting Europe Facility for 2021-2027 (CEF 2). The President of the Port of Gdansk Authority, Krzysztof Kaczmarek, signed two contracts with PORR S.A.

The modernization of the quays will improve the service of ships entering Gdańsk with bulk products and general cargo. This will improve the competitiveness of the Port of Gdansk, strengthen the transhipment potential and increase throughput – emphasizes the Port of Gdansk Authority.

The project “Improvement of the infrastructure of the Port of Gdansk together with an analysis of the implementation of the low-emission OPS system for the sustainable development of the TEN-T network” will receive a subsidy of nearly EUR 100 million.
The European Union Fund co-finances the reconstruction of four quays of the Inner Port, with a total length of 1,916 meters. The underground and railway infrastructure will be modernized.

The quay will have a greater load-bearing capacity and will be adapted to transshipment with the largest self-propelled devices such as LHM 550 and Mantsinen 300. The port basin will be deepened. Ships with a draft of up to 10.60 m and a carrying capacity of up to 35,000 tons will be able to moor here at the quay.
