POLAND Singapore investor PSA International, the Polish Development Fund (PFR) and the IFM Global Infrastructure Fund managed by IFM Investors, have signed an agreement to acquire a 100 pct stake in DCT Gdańsk, the largest container terminal in Poland.
The sale estimated at over USD 1.3 bln is subject to regulatory approval. The seller is Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) managed fund Global Infrastructure Fund II, MTAA Super, AustralianSuper and Statewide Super.

Poland Getting New Shipping Channel

Poland’s Maritime Office in Gdynia has signed an EUR 187 million (USD 205.4 million) contract for the development of a shipping channel through the Vistula Spit which separates the Vistula Lagoon from the Gdańsk Bay.

The joint venture Besix – NDI Group will be responsible for delivering the project that aims to ease the maritime traffic and boost Elblag’s port installations by reducing the distance between the port and the Baltic sea and making it accessible to larger vessels.

The works include the construction of two breakwaters, a channel, two rotating bridges over the lock, four sluice gates, buildings, landscaping as well as the adjacent roads and the soil reinforcement of the roads embankments.

A 190-hectare artificial island within the Vistula Lagoon will also be developed.

The channel stretches over 1.5 kilometers with a width varying from 25 to 120 meters. Located outside the spit in the Gdańsk Bay, the two breakwaters have respective lengths of 1,014 and 568 meters and form a protective harbor.

Works are expected to start in 2019 and be completed in 2022.

Port of Gdańsk CEO: 2020 Will Be of Historic Essence for Us

Poland’s Port of Gdańsk, one of the biggest seaports in the Baltic Sea, is preparing for an important milestone of becoming the busiest container port in the region.

As of now, the difference between the Port of Gdańsk and the Russian Port of St. Petersburg, the currently leading Baltic port, is only 122,000 TEUs, meaning that Gdansk is very close to achieving its goal.

“We expect the year 2020 to be of a historic essence for us, reaching 2,350,000 TEUs, a 10% increase compared to 2019,” Lukasz Greinke, CEO of the Port of Gdańsk Authority, said in an interview with World Maritime News.

“The huge impact on the projected increase is tied with the Euro Chain Train (ECT), which directly connects China with Gdańsk. Starting January 2020, Gdańsk will regularly receive regular railway services from Xi’an through Małaszewicze to Gdańsk.”

As explained, this connection offers many new possibilities not only for the port but for shipping companies as well, allowing a much faster route to the Scandinavian and British markets. The first train on this route arrived on November 24 from Xi’an, taking only 10 days.

However, the port’s ambition reaches far beyond that, according to Greinke. The current investments, and those planned such as the flagship project, the new Central Port, are to accelerate container throughput to up to 7,000,000 TEU.

The projects also include a plan to modernize the majority of the quays in the Internal Port. This will allow for more and bigger vessels to be serviced in this area of the port, Greinke continued.

The road and rail infrastructure linked to the Port of Gdańsk is also said to be a subject of very extensive works, focusing on modernizing and adding new connections leading straight to the port.

When asked about the main facilitator of the container volume increase at the Port of Gdańsk, Greinke said that Poland is experiencing continuous economic growth as it has become one of the most versatile markets within the European Union. This year’s annual growth is expected to reach 4,3%, with consumption remaining its main engine.

“This also applies to the Port of Gdańsk, the largest Polish port. I believe that this is due to our excellent understanding of Gdańsk’s geographic and economic strengths. We are the only port in the Baltic regularly receiving calls from the biggest shipping lines. The biggest vessels in the world, including the Gulsun class, can enter the port.”

Additionally, the port is said to have the fastest connection with Eastern Europe – mainly to Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Hungary, Belarus and Ukraine.
