Zarząd Morskiego Portu Gdynia S.A.

On 3 April 2014 at 13:00 hrs an opening information conference was held at the premises of the Port of Gdynia Authority S.A. in Gdynia concerning the project entitled “Developing the Area of the Bulgarian Quay in the Port of Gdynia”, co-funded by the European Union out of the Cohesion Fund as part of the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment.

This is one of the most significant investments of the Port Authority in financial terms. The total planned cost of the project is over PLN 101 million. The aim of the investment is to increase the port’s handling capacity and prepare over twenty hectares of real estate for the purposes of logistics, and thereby to further consolidate the competitive position of the Port of Gdynia in the Baltic Sea region.

Located in the Western Port in the immediate vicinity of Gdynia Container Terminal, the investment will allow creating appropriate conditions for handling both general cargo and bulk cargo, thus offering prospects for acquiring new clients interested in activities in this area. Another aim of the project is to increase the share of alternative transport modes (in relation to road transport) in Pan-European Transport Corridor VI of TEN-T network by increasing maritime shipping. The executed works will also contribute to protecting the area in question against uncontrolled rainwater runoff.

The actions undertaken as part of the project relate to, amongst other, the construction of wharfs: the Bulgarian Quay and closing quay with necessary infrastructure, roads and manoeuvre areas with ground and underground infrastructure and micro-levelling of land. The development works also include building up the mouth of the river “Chylonka”, strengthening the mouth sections of the river and Potok Chyloński, as well as gradual construction of new manoeuvre surfaces.

We would like to remind you that the entity responsible for carrying out the construction works as part of this project is STRABAG Sp. z o.o., pursuant to the agreement concluded on 5 September last year. The date for completing the works has been determined for March 2015.

Thanks to the agreement for co-funding the project “Developing the Area of the Bulgarian Quay in the Port of Gdynia” as part of Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment 2007 – 2013, signed on 30 December 2013, this project will be co-funded out of EU funds in the amount of over PLN 50 million.
