DCT Gdansk T2 Opens

Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) Gdansk, maritime ports consultant CH2M and Belgian contractor BESIX celebrated the opening of Terminal 2 (T2) yesterday.

The new 650-meter-long and 17-meter-deep quay increases DCT’s annual handling capacity to up to 3 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit).

Additionally, the new terminal berth can now accommodate ultra-large container vessels of capacity exceeding 18,000 TEU, such as the Maersk Triple E class container ships, which enter the Baltic Sea through the Danish Straits.

“The construction of Terminal 2 is of strategic importance to us, and we decided to entrust the contract engineer’s role to CH2M, thanks to their strong, global experience in maritime ports infrastructure,” said Maciek Kwiatkowski, DCT Gdansk CEO.

At a height of 82 meters, T2’s new ship-to-shore (STS) container cranes are the largest port equipment in Poland.

Terminal operations are supported by an assembly of electrified rubber-tired gantry (eRTG) cranes.

A key requirement of the project was to power the STS and eRTG cranes with electricity rather than diesel fuel to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and noise pollution.
