One of the tallest shipbuilding halls in Europe is being built in Gdynia!

In March, work began on the construction of the tallest hull hall in the Polish shipbuilding industry and a modern production hall at PGZ Naval Shipyard in Gdynia. The investment will significantly increase its production capacity.


The Hull Hall of the PGZ Naval Shipyard in Gdynia will be built as a 43-metre-high steel structure. The large gates will have similar dimensions: 43 metres high and 34 metres wide, and the cranes will be able to lift up to 100 tonnes. It will be one of the largest facilities of its kind in Europe.


Demolition work has been completed and piling work has been carried out under the production hall building and the office building. Sanitary and electrical networks are under construction. Demolition work on the hull hall continues and piling for the foundations of the hull hall has begun. Power clashes have been removed.


“We have completed the reinforced concrete work for the foundations of the office building and the production hall, and have started assembling the prefabricated structure of the office building and production hall. In mid-July, we will also start hydraulic engineering works related to the reinforcement of the existing quay,” says Sylwia Rogall, Project Director at the NDI Group. “We plan to start assembling the steel structure of the hull hall at the end of July.”


Twenty-five equipment units and around 60 employees currently work on the site.


The hulls of three state-of-the-art frigates for the Polish Navy, built as part of the Miecznik programme, will be integrated in the new hall building. According to the project, the development area will be close to 6,000 m2. The production hall will house all the shipyard’s outfitting departments. The general contractor is a consortium of NDI S.A., NDI SOPOT S.A. and Pekabex BET. The general contractor has 67 weeks from the date of signing the contract to complete all the work. The work will be completed in June 2024.
