Polish Minister of Maritime Economy and Inland Navigation, Marek Grobarczyk, together with the Governor of the Region of Pomerania, Dariusz Drelich, visited Port of Gdansk last week.
During the meeting with the minister, the port officials presented the latest port development plans, including expansion of the port and its capacity with other deep-water transshipment quays and the establishment of the Central Port.
“Both projects, as pointed out at the meeting by the CEO of PGA SA, Lukasz Greinke, are a response to the accelerating growth in international trade, in which the role of the Port of Gdansk, especially in handling the Central and Eastern European market, is undeniably growing,” the official announcement stated.
The construction of the Central Port is the first large-scale concept for the development of the Port of Gdansk in 40 years.
This capital development project involves the construction of new deepwater terminals to handle the largest vessels entering the Baltic Sea.
The Central Port will also serve as an infrastructure base that will allow for the further development of the distribution functions at the port for the whole of Central and Eastern Europe.
