Construction Starts on DCT’s New Terminal

DCT Gdansk, Poland’s largest and fastest growing container facility, has secured €290 million to meet the growing demand for deep-sea services in Central-Eastern Europe by expanding its operations.

The construction of a new deep-water quay in Gdansk’s Northern Port officially began yesterday with DCT Gdansk handing over the construction site to the Belgian N.V. BESIX – the general contractor and the designer of the new facility.

DCT Gdansk’s team, our shareholders, clients and the people supporting us in this project, had been waiting for this moment for over two years. Getting to this stage was not easy, but today we can be proud that this major step for the Polish container industry has been made,” said Maciek Kwiatkowski, DCT Chief Executive Officer.

Poland and the whole Baltic area have gained a new quality in deep-sea services with a multi-user container terminal capable to serve the world’s largest container vessels.” added Kwiatkowski.

The construction works will last approximately 19 months. These include both site preparation and building the facility. The preparation of the building site should take approximately six weeks. After this, the construction works will begin.
