UK-based design-build consultants CH2M HILL has won a £1.4m (US$2.3m) contract to supervise the expansion of the Deep Container Terminal (DCT) facilities in Gdansk, Poland.
Beginning operations in 2007, DCT is Poland’s sole deep-sea hub terminal; it has a strategic goal to become the largest container hub in the Baltic Sea. To this end, part of the works package will create an additional 666 m of quay and substantial development of the container handling and storage facilities.
In addition, the contract includes design works, preparation of contract documentation, assisting in the tendering process and supervising contractors. The design phase is expected to last eight months, with the construction period scheduled for two years.
