Klaipeda and Gdynia are two ports in the Baltic Sea which, despite the pandemic, have recorded significant increases in transshipments. The Gdynia port ended the year up nearly 3%. The investment priority in the coming months will be the completion of works on the new ferry terminal. The port authorities are already talking about cooperation with other operators. In the long term, the construction of the Outer Port will be of key importance for the development of Gdynia, including with a new container terminal. In recent months, global consortia have submitted their bids for this project, and the selection of the contractor should end this year.
The construction of the Outer Port will be of key importance for the further development of transshipments, which – as the representatives of the PGA emphasize – are in line with the respect for the fatherhood of the great builders Eugeniusz Kwiatkowski and Eng Tadeusz Wendy. This project – the most important in the history of the port – includes the construction of a new port pier, where a container terminal will be located and infrastructure for other functions, e.g. an installation port for the construction of offshore wind farms.
This year, the investment priority will be the completion of works on the new ferry terminal. The new facility will be able to handle 240 m long ferries and will provide shorter service times and power supply from the quay with electricity during standstill, so that, in accordance with the idea of the “green port”, ferries are zero-emission. The terminal building, warehouse and passenger gallery are already being completed.
