Polish terminal operator Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) Gdansk has started work on its new €290m (US$326m) deepwater quay.
On Thursday January 22, the terminal operator has handed over the construction site to the Belgian company N.V. BESIX – the general contractor and the designer of the new facility.
DCT CEO Maciek Kwiatkowski said: “DCT Gdansk’s team, our shareholders, clients and the people supporting us in this project, had been waiting for this moment for over two years. Getting to this stage was not easy, but today we can be proud that this major step for the Polish container industry has been made. Poland and the whole Baltic area have gained a new quality in deep-sea services with a multi-user container terminal capable to serve the world’s largest container vessels.”
