The Port of Gdansk Authority (PGA) has signed an agreement with DS Consulting company related to the construction of the Central Port – the largest planned maritime investment in Europe.

According to the Port Authority’s latest announcement, the Central Port will include a basin covering about 1,400 ha and a reclaimed area covering 410 ha. The project involves the construction of nine terminals, four turning areas and three approach fairways.

We believe that the construction of such a complex infrastructure must respond to market demands. We want private investors to decide which terminals should be located here. On the other hand, we want to provide our future business partners and ourselves a professional project consultancy for this task. For this reason, we have signed an agreement with specialists in public-private partnerships,” said Lukasz Greinke, President of the PGA.

For many years, we have been successfully supporting public sector entities in implementation of large infrastructure projects, helping to carry out pre-investment analyses, obtain funds and negotiate with business partners. We will work together with our subcontractors: Wuprohyd (Gdynia) and a Warsaw law firm of Dr Rafal Cieslak, which specializes in the issues of public-private partnerships,” commented Rafal Szporko, President of DS Consulting.

As part of the agreement, DS Consulting will carry out preliminary analyses (including the feasibility study) and will provide constant consultancy for transactions, covering economic, financial, market, technical and legal issues.

The construction of the Central Port in its final form will cost around $3 billion, including expenditures on the part of the maritime administration – on the construction of new breakwaters, turning areas and approach fairways.
