Baltic Hub kicks off construction of its third terminal
Baltic Hub (formerly known as DCT Gdańsk), the operator of the largest container terminal in the Baltic Sea, ceremoniously kicked off construction of its third deep-water Terminal – T3 yesterday.
When fully completed in the second quarter of 2025, the new terminal will have a 717-meter-long and 17.5 meter deep quay wall.
This will be Baltic Hub’s third deepsea berth that can handle the largest container vessels in the world.
The new terminal will also provide 36.5 hectares of additional operating space. In total, the investment is worth 450 million EUR.
Also, the T3 project, which will be open for commercial operations after the first phase is completed in the first half of 2024, is testament to Baltic Hub ambition to develop the largest container hub to serve Central and Eastern Europe as well as the Baltics and become one of the largest container terminal hubs in Europe.
The construction of the T3 project will be executed in two phases. In a first phase, the consortium of the companies Budimex and DEME will build the 36 hectare terminal area next to Terminal 1.
This new terminal area, which will be completed by the first half of 2024, will be entirely reclaimed from the sea.
Also, it will increase the handling capacity of Baltic Hub by 1.5 million TEUs (20-foot containers) to 4.5 million TEUs per year.
In the second phase construction of the 717-meter-long, 17.5 meter deep quay wall will commence. This is scheduled to start in early 2023 and completed in the second quarter of 2025.
