Krajowa Spolka Cukrowa (KSC) S.A. opened its Sugar Terminal in the Port of Gdansk

  11.10.2019    

KSC S.A. invested over PLN 100 mio. to develop the Sugar Terminal, the silo and quay infrastructure. This move will help the Company reach new markets in Asia and Africa. Krajowa Spolka Cukrowa plans to ship 300,000 tons of sugar over its terminal in the coming years. A few dozen jobs will be created in the Tricity as a result of the project.
On 10 October, Krajowa Spolka Cukrowa S.A. opened its Sugar Terminal in the Port of Gdansk. The facility is located at the quay, in direct vicinity of the Martwa Wisla river, which ensures passage and loading of high-tonnage vessels.
The entire project covers a handling and shipping terminal, comprising:

    a 50,000 ton silo
    a sugar packing hall
    a finished product warehouse, approx. 8k tons in capacity and clear height of 12 metres
    office rooms
    Wislane Quay infrastructure providing for undisrupted road and rail access.

The opening of the Sugar Terminal reasserts the Port's readiness to respond to customer needs. We are happy to cooperate with Krajowa Spolka Cukrowa, the largest sugar market player. KSC's decision to choose the Port of Gdansk as the site of its project proves right our Port development strategy based on establishing strategic alliances with leaders from the respective industries, and validates the claim that the Port of Gdansk is a safe and promising location to develop business operations - says Lukasz Greinke - President of the Management Board of the Port of Gdansk Authority SA.
The entire project enables sugar unloading from rail cars and silo trucks. Modern handling and shipping facilities provide for sugar shipping in polypropylene bags, stacked both in containers and cargo decks of conventional ships. Circulation yards, car parks for trucks and passenger cars are being developed at the Terminal, to be followed by railway track rehabilitation.
The Sugar Terminal enables us to export by sea at least 300,000 tonnes of sugar per year. Our own Terminal eliminates the requirement to hire storage space at third-party warehouses, which will cut down our costs significantly - says Krzysztof Kowa, President of the Management Board of Krajowa Spolka Cukrowa S.A.
Krajowa Spolka Cukrowa S.A. seeks not only to maintain its current domestic and global customer base, but also to acquire new customers, previously difficult to reach due to sea shipping constraints.
In the years to come, Krajowa Spolka Cukrowa S.A. plans to manufacture one million tonne of sugar per year, approximately 30% of which will be exports outside the European Union. The Sugar Terminal is a major step in the development of KSC S.A. Sugar consumption has remained stable in Europe for many years. To be competitive on the market where sugar consumption is growing, notably in Asia and Africa, we need our own handling terminal - notes Krzysztof Kowa, President of the Management Board of Krajowa Spolka Cukrowa.
The agreement on the property lease for the development of the handling and shipping terminal, including access infrastructure to support sugar transport, was signed by Krajowa Spolka Cukrowa S.A. and the Port of Gdansk Authority SA in November 2017. The development work started in April 2018 and was carried out by T I Construction Sp. z o.o., supervised by KSC S.A. staff. The Terminal development cost will exceed PLN 100 mio. KSC S.A. will employ a few dozen new staff members for the Terminal, such as warehouse and forklift truck operators and logistics staff.
