The investment named "Dredging of the approach fairway and inside waters the Port of Gdynia - Stage I" is part of a large investment project named "Dredging of the approach fairway and internal water reservoirs of the Port of Gdynia - Stage I and III and reconstruction of quays in the Port of Gdynia - Stage II and III." The entire investment project was directed to funding from the European Union Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020.
Stage II - Deepening of the approach fairway, conducted in parallel by the Maritime Office in Gdynia, in a separate application procedure, will supplement the part of the multi-stage project realized by the PGA SA (i.e. "Dredging of the approach fairway and internal water reservoirs of the Port of Gdynia - Stage I and III").
Hence, the following division into the implementation stages of the investment in the part concerning dredging of the port:

Stage II (Maritime Office in Gdynia): Dredging of the approach fairway of the Port of Gdynia (up to the heads of the breakwater) to the ordinate of approx. -17.00 m (an increase in the depth by approx. 2.5 m compared with the current depth of approx. -14.5 m).
Stage III (PGA SA): Execution of dredging works to the ordinate of -16.00 m in the Port Channel and the port water reservoirs (an increase in depth by 2.5 m compared with the current depth of -13.5 m).
