30 million tons of cargo in the Port of Gdansk


Evident in daily handling operations carried out in the port this year, an economic recovery resulted not only in the record large turnover in a thousand-year-old history of the Port of Gdansk, but also enabled for a barrier of 30 million tonnes of cargoes handled to be broken through.
Promising statistics have been reported by all Polish ports since January. In summing up the first six months of 2013, Gdansk also had good reasons to be very optimistic about the future. The forecasts of Deepwater Container Terminal's turnover growth came true. Regular weekly shipping volumes delivered from the Far East as part of the AE 10 Container Service were reinforced by introducing in July the world's largest Triple-E class container ships holding 18,200 TEU at a time to serve the Port of Gdansk.

Millionth TEU in DCT Gdansk

15-th November 2013



DCT Gdansk is now officially a member of a prestigious club of container terminals handling 1 million TEU annually and more. After only 6 years of operating, DCT Gdansk became a hub port for Central – Eastern Europe and Russia, serving as a true gateway leading to Poland and other Baltic states. DCT handled millionth TEU of the year on the 15th of November 2013 while operating Męrsk Mc-Kinney Mųller.

This is a great milestone not only for the terminal, but for the entire Polish container business in particular. For many decades Polish market was serviced by foreign ports. Together with creating DCT Gdansk, Polish importers and exporters gained reliable and efficient facility providing the highest international standards.

“Polish container industry is young and still searching for its identity on the international market. For a long time Poland was perceived as a marginal player and both clients and terminal operators doubted that this position may ever be changed. DCT Gdansk filled the gap and responded to the market demand by attracting direct deep sea calls to the Baltic Sea and taking on the role of the leader in changing region’s trade patterns. Gdansk became an important link connecting CEE and Russian markets with the Far East. It is crucial for the whole Baltic industry to acquire coherent pattern of container transport, with leading container hub port in Gdansk, and sufficient and modern feeder terminals in other main Baltic ports” says Maciek Kwiatkowski, President of the Board, DCT Gdansk.

Polish ports to invest zł.10 billion (2,5b euro)

Poland's marine ports plan to invest zł.10 billion in 2014-2020, far more than the zł.4 billion they spent on investments in 2007-2013. These amounts include both the port's resources and EU funding.

Major investments, worth about zł.700 million, are planned in the Port of Gdańsk. These will include both work in the docks and in the outer infrastructure of the facility. The Port of Gdynia plans investments worth zł.600 million.

According to Actia Forum study, the Port of Gdańsk is the second biggest in the Baltic region, after the port in St. Petersburg, when it comes to freight reloading.

Construction of the Outer Port - an investment fit for the XXII century




A few months ago, the Port of Gdansk celebrated the 40th anniversary of the construction of the Northern Port - the deepwater part of the Port of Gdansk - which is currently one of its fastest growing areas partly due to the excellent hydrographic conditions. At the moment, the Port of Gdansk is launching its next project, which will determine the shape and position of the port over the coming decades.

The current "Development Strategy for the Port of Gdansk" which runs until the year 2027 includes the concept to develop another deepwater area of the port in the direction of the Gulf of Gdansk. The project was given the working name Outer Port, or alternatively Central Port.

There will be three phases of the project: analysis and conception, documentation and execution. The first of these will serve to verify the strategic assumptions in terms of the spatial possibilities as well as to verify the market forecasts included in the strategy.

According to the assessment carried out by the Port of Gdansk Authority SA, there are enormous opportunities for developing the port within the basins lying within its administrative boundaries, from the north-west to the existing deepwater port facilities. Here it is possible to develop the port with technology similar to that used in the Northern Port by siltation and the construction of piers. An additional advantage of the proposed location of the Outer Port (Central Port), is its location in the vicinity of the existing infrastructure (road and rail). This solution will contribute to reducing the cost of constructing new port infrastructure, especially in terms of land access.

Today's port, as a communication hub connecting maritime and land transport, must compete effectively in the European market. Ports, especially those important to the economies of their countries, have evolved into the role of organisms creating added value, a key chink in the global supply chains in which infrastructure and suprastructure are part of a uniform system. The architecture of this system channels the effort of all resources into one direction: to ensure high efficiency and maximum convenience for all port customers, accessibility for larger and larger ships as well as to minimise the risk of congestion.

The construction of the Outer Port is therefore a concept that makes these demands a reality. It is also consistent with the overriding idea behind the development strategy of the Port of Gdansk, which puts special emphasis on the scenario of transforming into a V generation port, namely:

a universal intermodal logistics hub, allowing us to service the largest vessels entering the Baltic Sea,
an important centre not only locally within the Pomeranian region, but nationwide offering a comprehensive intermodal transport service,
a key communications hub on the South Baltic Sea operating within well-managed terrain to ensure the optimisation of space, featuring innovative logistics solutions,
a port-maritime trading centre attracting direct investment, stimulating the regional Pomeranian economy as well as the country.

The initial analytical and conceptual phase of the construction of the Outer Port (Central Port) is therefore a most important step for the future of the port both in terms the economy and society. The expansion of the Port of Gdansk, which is the base port of Trans-European Transport Corridor No. 1, also means the activation of the local community, for whom new places of work will be created along with new opportunities and life prospects.

Such a concept of a new generation Port of Gdansk is not just a futuristic vision, but a real expansion project concerning the largest seaport in Poland, soon to be witnessed not only by its direct beneficiaries but in fact by all of us.

A new record at the Port of Gdańsk. Cargo throughput up 11,8 % in 2015

In the first half of this year, the Port of Gdańsk (Poland) handled 17.2 million tons of cargo. That's 11.8 percent more than in the same period last year.


- The current year is very successful for us, especially if you take into account the situation of the other Baltic ports. Only a few top-ten ports in our region boasts the growth rate of almost 12 percent - says Monika Wszeborowska , Director of Marketing at the Port of Gdańsk .

More liquid fuels

Excellent results at the port can be attributed to high turnover of liquid fuels, up by 30 % in 1H 2015.

- The previous year was very good in this respect in our port, because we handled 12.5 million tonnes of fuel. It was the third best result in the history of the Gdańsk - says Monika Wszeborowska. - This year should be even better. In the first six months port already handled 7.3 million tons of fuel – almost 60 % of whole 2014 turnover – she adds.

Gdansk also achieved excellent results in coal ore handling, despite the difficult situation in global economy, especially on the Polish market. Coal ore throughput rose by 13 % to almost 2m tons. Noteworthy results were achieved in the group of "other bulk cargo", which recorded 3.5 % increase in cargo turnover compared to the first half of last year, mainly due to high aggregate cargo handling.

Decline in container throughput

Turnover of grain dropped by 5 % (40,000 ton). There was also a change in the structure of the group. This year wheat accounted for 32 % of grain cargo, up by 9 perc.

A slight decline was also recorded in handling of general cargo at the port: from 5.6 million to 5.5 million tonnes.

- The slight decrease is due to the somewhat weaker performance in terms of container handling. Their throughput dropped by 3 percent. While the number of containers (TEUs) actually significantly decreased in the current year, their tonnage remained nearly on the same level - informs Monika Wszeborowska . - Such changes in the handling of containers at the port is the result of historically low freight rates around the world, which equally affected all Polish ports. However, we also have some reasons for optimism. From August G6 Alliance will start calling at our port – she added.

The Alliance G6, formed by 6 container shipping companies - APL, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL), Hapag-Lloyd, Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) and Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) - will be calling at Gdansk as part of their weekly service.

Over the past six months, the Port of Gdansk has witnessed three more important events for container market. Work began on the extension of the deepwater container terminal DCT Gdansk - an investment which by the end of next year will have doubled the terminal's annual handling capacity of 3 million TEU in the first phase of the extension. Also, container giants such as Maersk and MSC operating within the 2M alliance and Hamburg Sud started calling at Gdansk.

Will Gdansk soon have some new intermodal terminals?

07.10.2015

The Port of Gdansk has launched a new tender for the following attractively located areas in the Outer Port in the hinterland of the currently expanding DCT container terminal, PERN oil terminal, dry bulk cargo terminal of the Northern Port and the soon to be built new OT Logistics deepwater bulk terminal.

EnlargeThe object of the tender is 7 adjacent plots with a total area of over 45 hectares, of which the smallest is less than 2 hectares, while the largest - over 12 hectares.

The indisputable advantage of all this real estate are its excellent transport connections by both road and rail. For many, value will be added by the direct proximity to the dynamically expanding Pomeranian Logistics Centre - currently the largest since it boasts half a million m2 of warehouse space, the national logistics project, and the so-called buffer parking zone planned nearby by the municipality.

This is the last of the free space at the disposal of potential investors interested in locating their business in the outer, deepwater area of the Port of Gdansk. These lots admittedly do not have direct access to the shoreline. However, their close proximity in terms of the main feeder rail link carrying traffic from the Outer Port into the heart of Poland and in terms of the main national road network and the A1 motorway make this currently one of the most attractive locations in the Port of Gdansk for the construction of intermodal or logistic terminals or enterprises with the capability of using this kind of transport.

Another important issue is their location in relation to the planned direction of the further extension of the deepwater area of the Gdansk port, i.e. the construction of the Outer/ Central Port. With a view to, among others, expanding the port in the immediate vicinity of this real estate, investment is planned for the 2014-2020 period within the scope of the project entitled "The development and modernisation of road and railway networks in the Outer Port in Gdansk". This project will include the construction of new and the reconstruction of the existing road-rail system, which ultimately will further improve communication in this area of the port which, as forecast in the "Strategy for the development of the port by 2027", is predicted to see the highest growth rate in cargo handling and the development of enterprises connected with the port.

In a word, soon 45 hectares of attractively located port land plots will be at the disposal of interested parties who appreciate opportunities to develop their production, logistics or service businesses in one of this country's fastest growing ports.

All interested parties are welcome.

The largest crane in the country

Quote:
From the port of Vlissingen in the south-west Netherlands to Szczecin sailed gantry crane for Bilfinger Offshore Mars.

Nearly 120-meter crane will be used in the final stages of production of foundations for offshore wind Ostrow Brdowskim. The ship docked at the quay of the Kashubian island Ostrow Brdowskie.

The crane was at the Szczecin elements. This 8 parts weighing 80-340 t and a few smaller ones. The total weight of approx. 1,500 tons. The crane was manufactured in the Netherlands, after the assembly will have almost 120 meters high, with the ability capacity to 1,400 tons.

Unloading of the lift will take several hours, and the completion assembly crane is scheduled for December. A team of fitters will consist of approx. 20 people, and the installation will require, among others, two cranes (400 and 600 tons capacity). The crane will be the highest architectural element of our city, visible from many places of Szczecin.

Polish LNG terminal ready to receive fuel
22.11.2015 11:19
The Świnoujscie LNG terminal in northern Poland is ready to receive its first shipment of gas, with a tanker leaving Qatar on its way to Poland.

The tanker operated by Qatargas is set to arrive at its destination on 11 December.
It is carrying over 200,000 m3 of liquid natural gas (LNG), and started its trip once Qatargas had conducted a successful audit of the Polish terminal, and confirmed that it can receive its first delivery of gas.

The LNG terminal in northern Poland is meant to decrease the country's energy dependence on Russia.

The project is worth some PLN 3.5 billion.
Qatargas is “the largest LNG producing company in the world, with an annual LNG production capacity of 42 million tonnes per annum (MTA),” it says on its website. (rg/di)

DCT Gdańsk's T2 Berth Gets 1st STS Cranes
Quote:
The month of May has begun at Poland’s DCT Gdańsk terminal with the arrival of a multipurpose vessel owned by Hansa Heavy Lift carrying first STS cranes for T2 operations intended for the new depwater berth at the terminal.

The ship moored at the newly built second deepwater berth that will be equipped with five modern STS cranes with the outreach of 25 rows of containers, able to handle the largest boxships in the world.

“The current level of progress is approx. 65% of the total investment. The next step will be the erection of delivered cranes and positioning them on the crane rails,” Michał Biernacki, T2 project manager says.

The completion of T2 infrastructure construction work is planned for the second half of 2016.

“The moment the second berth will be ready to use, we will double our handling capacity up to 3 million TEU per annum. Further development of DCT Gdansk will permanently change the face of Polish economy in this part of the world,” Maciek Kwiatkowski, Chief Executive Officer of DCT Gdańsk points out.

Currently, the elements of two cranes are being unloaded from the ship. The third crane is expected this month, and another two in August 2016.

The project’s main financier is Australia, according to DCT Gdańsk.

The video below shows the arrival of the first SNS cranes:
