The construction is planned to start in 2Q 2022 and Baltic Hub 3 is scheduled to be operational by mid-2024.
The Port of Gdańsk has begun a new era of container handling on the Baltic Sea.
On 23 July, a lease for a new port area was awarded to DCT Gdańsk S.A., comprised of PSA International (40%), the Polish Development Fund (30%) and IFM Global Infrastructure Fund advised by Australian IFM Investors (30%).
DCT Gdańsk is the largest container terminal on the Baltic Sea. Since the start of its operations in 2007, two deep-water quays (T1 and T2 – launched in 2007 and 2016 respectively) have been built with a total capacity of 3m TEUs.
The new Baltic Hub 3 container terminal will be sustainably built on the site, located east of the existing T1 berth. The development is expected to bring investment into the region of 2 billion PLN (about €450m).
“Investments such as Baltic Hub 3 strengthen the position of the Polish economy,” said Marek Gróbarczyk, Poland’s deputy minister of infrastructure.
