DCT Gdansk Kicks Off Construction of Deepwater Berth

DCT Gdansk, the operator of Poland’s largest container terminal, officially started the construction phase of a new deepwater quay in Gdansk’s Northern Port on Thursday, January 22.

Back in October 2014, DCT Gdansk chose the Belgian N.V. BESIX to be the general contractor and the designer of the new facility. By early November 2014, DCT Gdansk finalized the financing process for the construction of the 650m deepwater berth with a group of commercial and development banks which provided EUR 290 million (USD 359.3m) for the project.

The construction works will last 19 months. These include both site preparation and building the facility. The preparation of the building site should take approximately six weeks. After this, the construction works will begin.

The new terminal berth will be ready for operations in 2016. It will be equipped with 5 STS cranes, delivered by Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd., 16 RTG cranes and additional yard equipment.

The new 650m long berth will increase the DCT’s annual handling capacity by up to 3 million TEUs in the first stage of the construction.
