The redevelopment of the Indyjskie Quay in the Port of Gdynia will soon begin. Today, on 21 December, the official signing of the contract for this task took place at the headquarters of the Port of Gdynia Authority. The general contractor is a consortium composed of NDI Group companies: NDI S.A. and NDI SOPOT S.A., which has 22 months to complete all works and obtain a permit for use.
“We are delighted to have signed another contract at the Port of Gdynia. Our staff coped excellently with the works at the handling and storage yards, which we completed on time, and now we are already working on the redevelopment of the Holenderskie Quay,” says Małgorzata Winiarek-Gajewska, President of the NDI Group. “The next project will allow us to make greater use of our staff’s experience in hydraulic engineering works and is an excellent addition to our portfolio in this sector for the years to come,” adds the NDI Group CEO.
NDI is tasked with the reconstruction of the Indyjskie Quay over a length of approximately 540 m, consisting primarily of widening it by 6 m. The new quay wall will be made of anchored steel cofferdams and pipe piles. The project includes the dismantling of the wharf’s hydrotechnical equipment, the demolition of the reinforced concrete cap, the track bed and the bottom reinforcement. The investment area will be cleared of unexploded ordnance and deepened to a level of -15.5 m to allow access to the quay for bulk carriers arriving at the Port of Gdynia. The reconstruction includes the construction of a rail-road system, technological installations, new quay equipment, a reinforced concrete cap structure and a reception berth. The existing flyovers will be lengthened and the loading berths serving ships will be relocated.
The general contractor has 22 months to complete the entire contract but will put the first section of the investment into operation after just 16 months.
“Thanks to the modernisation of the Indyjskie Quay, in 22 months it will be ready to receive grain cargoes at the deep-water quay. Thanks to this, the Port of Gdynia will be able to maintain its primacy in the Baltic Sea basin in terms of grain cargo handling,” explains Jacek Sadaj, President of the Port of Gdynia Authority S.A.
This is not the only project that NDI is currently implementing in the Port of Gdynia. Since July this year, it has also been modernising the Holenderskie Quay, where the task to be carried out includes, among others, the reconstruction of the rail and road surface along with utilities, as well as the construction of a network which will power the port cranes at the quay there. This task is to be completed by the end of 2023.
