More metres of quays completed!

Construction of the new quays in Szczecin is underway. At the end of last year, the first stage of the Czech and Slovak Quays was successfully completed with an occupancy permit. Construction work on the remaining stages two and three is already underway.

The improvement of access to the Port of Szczecin in the area of the Dębicki Canal includes the modernisation of the Czech and Slovak Quays and the construction of new Norwegian and Danish Quays as well as a spoil dump site on the island of Ostrów Mieleński. The general contractor for the investment is the NDI Group.

In the winter, some parts of the individual quays were granted occupancy permits, which enabled the completion of construction of, among others, 300 m of the Norwegian Quay, 780 m of shore lining at the Danish Quay and the scope of the first stage of the Czech and Slovak Quays. The fender line for the Finnish Quay, where an occupancy permit was not required, was also replaced. Acceptance work is underway at the construction site of the spoil dump site on the Ostrów Mieleński Island.

“Recently, we have been working on the construction of the second and third stages of the Czech and Slovak Quays. We have completed another seven sections (approx. 140 lm) from No. 17 to No. 23. Acceptance work is underway there. At the same time, we have started demolition work on the penultimate third section of the quay. The dredging work is 90% complete. The dredged material is being dumped in the constructed and completed spoil dump site on Ostrów Mieleński and Ostrów Grabowski islands. Finishing and trade works are underway at the Norwegian Quay. The bottom of the Dębicki Canal has been dredged to – 12.5 m above sea level,” says Piotr Arabczyk, NDI Group Project Director.

Documents have also been submitted to the Voivodeship Inspectorate for Construction Supervision to obtain an occupancy permit for more than 780 metres of shore lining, which forms the first stage of the future Danish Quay. We have passed the inspection and are waiting for the permit to be issued,” adds Piotr Arabczyk.

The modernisation of the port will improve its accessibility, especially in the area of the Dębicki Canal, and enable the handling of the largest vessels. The project is co-financed by the European Union from the Cohesion Fund under the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment. Companies of the NDI Group are the general contractor.
