DCT Gdansk to invest US$76 million to add 9 new quay cranes


Poland's biggest and only deep-water container terminal, DCT Gdansk, is to undergo a major expansion programme worth PLN280 million (US$76.32 million).
The announcement comes as the port celebrates its 10th anniversary and coincided with the visit of Deputy Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
The expansion will add two new ship-to-shore (STS) cranes, which will be among the world's largest, five rubber tired gantry cranes (RTGs) and make more yard area available. The gate complex will be also fully optimised and automated to improve the efficiency of the arrival process for truckers, St Petersburg PortNews reported.
In addition, the port's rail capacity will be boosted, with a 50 per cent increase in rail lines to six sidings, all of which will be extended to 750 metres - currently the longest possible in Europe. This enhanced rail operation will be handled by two new rail mounted gantries (RMGs).
The project is due to be completed within the next three years, strengthening DCT Gdansk's position as a gateway to Poland and Central Eastern Europe and international transshipment hub to the upper Baltic region.
DCT Gdansk started operations in 2007, with one deep-water berth equipped with three STS cranes and a total annual capacity of 500 000 TEU. Within the space of one decade the terminal has grown six-fold. The opening of terminal two at the end of 2016 raised total capacity to three million TEU. Currently, the port has a 1.3-kilometre quay line and 11 STS cranes.
