The seaports of Gdańsk and Gdynia on the Baltic coast have welcomed new investors over the past several months. New owners have taken over the terminals in Gdynia and new investment projects are planned.

Dutch company Fairplay BV, based in Rotterdam, became the owner of WUŻ Przedsiębiorstwo Usług Żeglugowych i Portowych Gdynia Sp. z o.o., a company providing towage and mooring services. The Port of Gdynia Authority sold 100 percent of the shares in WUŻ for zl.44.4 million. The WUŻ workers received employment and work and pay guarantees for three years. ATIC Services, based in Paris, paid zl.60.3 million to buy 100 percent of the shares in the company operating the Maritime Bulk Terminal in Gdynia. And the privatization of the company operating the Baltic General Cargo Terminal in Gdynia is planned for next year.

In another important development, the Port of Gdynia Authority signed a contract with Polish construction company Mostostal for the modernization and expansion of road and rail infrastructure providing access to the eastern part of Port of Gdynia. As part of the project, Mostostal will relocate Polska Street and the railway tracks adjacent to the port. Underground infrastructure will be redeveloped and new parking areas will be built.

In Gdańsk, the PERN PrzyjaĽń and Oiltanking companies are planning to build a fuel terminal with a capacity of 800,000 cubic meters on the premises of the Port Północny company, which handles bulk cargo in the Port of Gdańsk. The zl.800 million project will be carried out by Oiltanking PERN Gdańsk, a company set up for this purpose. The tanks will be built on a site of 27.5 hectares.

The construction of a dry cargo terminal in Gdańsk was announced at the International Economic Forum in Gdynia. The Belgian Sea-Invest Group is building a new terminal in the Gdańsk’s Port Północny. The group wants to spend around 50 million euros on the project. The terminal will be provided with two cranes with a lifting capacity of 50 tons each, a system of belt conveyors and new storage depots. The terminal will be serving ships with a draught of 15 meters and length of 300 meters. The project is scheduled for completion in 2013.
