The conference, which has already become a tradition, presenting the results for the previous year and the intentions for the following year was held today, on 13 February 2014, at the office of the Port of Gdynia Authority S.A.
The Company’s Management Board presented a summary of the activities of the Port of Gdynia Authority S.A. in the past year, as well as the cargo handling amounts attained in 2013 in the Port of Gdynia.
The conference also included a presentation of the Management Board’s investment activities last year and plans in this respect for the year 2014.
The bygone year 2013 was a record year for the Port of Gdynia for many reasons, including the following: the largest cargo handling amount (17.66 million tons) in the Port’s 91-year history, the best result in the group of general cargo (over 11 million ton), or the greatest number of signed agreements for funding investment projects out of EU funds totalling the amount of over PLN 210 million.
These record results can undoubtedly be attributed to the Management Board’s considerable investment activities, which help Gdynia to maintain a solid competitive position among Baltic Sea ports. In the years 2003 - 2013 the Port of Gdynia Authority S.A. invested about PLN 763 million in the port’s expansion and modernization ( including about 77% in the Port’s infrastructure ). Out of the invested amounts about PLN 687 million comes from own funds (i.e. from the Port Authority’s revenues and privatisation of port companies) and about PLN 76 million from EU funds (EU Cohesion Fund, Norwegian Financial Mechanism). The amounts of planned capital investments for the years 2014-2016 will total another PLN 737 million.
