The Port of Gdansk is working on a project that will modernize the long-neglected Dworzec Drzewny quay.

In mid-December 2017, the port issued a call for tenders for the modernization of the quay. The bids submitted by eight entities have just been opened.

According to the port authority, five consortia and three enterprises have submitted bids for the reconstruction of the Dworzec Drzewny quay, with all potential contractors declaring that the work will be completed within 96 weeks from the moment of signing the agreement.

Dworzec Drzewny is a quay which has remained out of use for many years. Due to years of neglect, it fell into ruin and lost all its transshipment capacity,” said Lukasz Greinke, President of the Board of the Port of Gdansk Authority.

We want to expand it, so that it can become vibrant with port life once again. We assume that it will be a universal quay. Currently, it has a steep sloped structure, which has to be changed. We also need to move the fender line,” added Lukasz Greinke.

Future work on this quay will focus on the expansion of an area of about 1,220 meters. The selected contractor will perform demolition work, earthwork, dredging and bottom-reinforcing work, sanitary work, and road and railway work.

“A new sheet pile retaining wall, new fender lines and berthing lines will be built. This will make it possible for the largest vessels able to enter the Inner Port – with draughts up to 10.6 m – to be handled at Dworzec Drzewny,” explained Marcin Osowski, Vice-President of the Board and Director of Infrastructure at the PGA.

The Port of Gdansk also said that the modernization of the Dworzec Drzewny is one of the tasks in a project involving the conversion of the fairway. 85% of the funds for the project come from the resources of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).

Thanks to the EU funds, work will also include the dredging of the fairway and the modernization of the Oliwskie, Obroncow Poczty Polskiej, and Mew Quays, as well as the Zbozowe Quay along with a part of the quay at the Wisloujscie Fortress. This means a total of 5 km of renovated infrastructure.

Projects financed using CEF will be completed by the end of 2020. By that time, investments at the Port of Gdansk will reach the amount of $290 million.
