Gdańsk Seaport Staying Afloat

Despite reduced cargo handling, the Baltic seaport of Gdańsk turned a zl.5 million profit on revenue of zl.110 million last year, port executives said.

The port's terminals handled a total of 17.8 million metric tons of cargo last year, down from 19.8 million tons in 2007. The decline was primarily due to reduced handling of coal and liquid fuels, which, according to preliminary figures, stood at 1 million and 10.3 million tons respectively, said Gdańsk Port Authority chairman Ryszard Strzyżewicz.

Optimistically, general cargo handling exceeded 3 million tons last year, rising from 2.3 million in 2007, executives said, adding that the port's Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) and the Gdańsk Container Terminal stevedored a combined 185,000 Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEU) in 2008.

The seaport carried out a number of investment projects last year, using both its own funds-zl.14 million in all-and co-financing from European Union coffers, executives said. The port pursued projects such as the construction of new facilities to service roll-on/roll-off ships, and modernization of the wharf, stacking yards, and access roads.
