Naftoport from the PERN Group has signed a contract for the preparation of design documentation for the investment consisting in the expansion of the terminal with a new deep-water berth for transshipment of crude oil and petroleum products, PERN reported. The agreement also includes obtaining all formal and legal decisions, including the building permit. This is an important milestone on the way to increasing the capacity of Naftoport, and thus strengthening the energy security of the state.
“The current international situation has radically remodeled the architecture of raw material supplies to Europe, including Poland. Our oil windows to the world are the Naftoport and the fuel terminal in Dębogórze – they are now at the forefront of the Polish energy security agenda, as they enable effective supplies of crude oil and fuels by sea,” said Paweł Stańczyk, President of the Management Board, quoted in the release.
“Naftoport has doubled the volume of transshipments performed over the last 5 years. For this year, we assume a further, very significant increase in turnover, and then – maintaining such a high level over the decades. The main objective of the investment is to strengthen the certainty of operational continuity and full availability of Naftoport for reported raw material supplies,” added Andrzej Brzózka, President of Naftoport.
The design of the stand will be made by PPBH Aquaprojekt from Gdańsk. The implementation of design works and the entire project is carried out with the participation of the Port of Gdansk Authority.
PERN is a national leader in crude oil logistics and a leading entity in the field of crude oil and liquid fuel storage as well as pipeline transport of crude oil and fuels.
