BESIX Group, of the Belgium’s largest companies operating in the construction industry, has won a contract for the design and construction of a new berth and the adjacent container stacking yards at the DCT Gdansk (Deepwater Container Terminal Gdansk).
The new 650m long berth will increase DCT’s annual handling capacity up to 3 million TEU just in the first stage of the construction. It will be equipped with 5 STS cranes, delivered by Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd., 16 RTG cranes and additional yard equipment.
Deadline for the construction of the new berth is set for early 2016.
