Port of Gdynia – storage yards
The Port of Gdynia will gain new manoeuvring and storage yards in the area of the Logistics Centre. The total area of over 17 hectares will be used to store containers and wind farm components.
Port of Gdynia Authority S.A. signed an agreement with a consortium of companies from Sopot – NDI Sp. z o.o. and NDI SOPOT S.A. for the execution of works related to the “Construction of manoeuvring and storage yards in the area of the Logistics Centre in the Port of Gdynia”. On behalf of ZMPG Lublin the contract was signed by: Vice President of the Management Board – Director of Infrastructure and Asset Management Jacek Sadaj, and Vice President of the Management Board – Director of Finance and Financial Management Maciej Bąk. The NDI consortium was represented by the President of the Management Board – Ms Małgorzata Winiarek-Gajewska.
The growth of seaport transshipment is increasingly linked to the potential of intermodal transport, which in the coming years will become a priority branch of freight transport, both in Poland and Europe. A comprehensive project of conceptual development of the Western Port area of about 30 ha, together with the construction of manoeuvring and storage yards on an area of about 20 ha, is an element of the Logistics Centre, including the construction of an intermodal terminal.
One of the storage yards will become a base for handling elements of Polish offshore wind farms. – We would like the Port of Gdynia to be the place where sets of wind farms are completed and then exported to the licensed maritime areas – comments Jacek Sadaj – Vice President of Port of Gdynia Authority S.A. Investments in this area of the Port of Gdynia are directly in line with the Strategy of the Port of Gdynia 2027. Our aim is to create favourable conditions for the development of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) – adds Sadaj.
– The development of investments in Polish ports is nowadays very dynamic and I am very happy that as a company from the region – from Sopot – we can participate in this process. At the moment we are completing the development of road infrastructure in the Port of Gdańsk. One of its elements was a square made using a method that will also be applied in Gdynia. Here, we will make two such storage yards, which are as large as 17 hectares – Małgorzata Winiarek Gajewska President of NDI.
General Contractor, NDI sp. z o.o. and NDI SOPOT S.A. have 22 months to complete the construction. The consortium will carry out two concrete pavement yards with underground utilities. As part of the construction of Square No. 1, a linear drainage system is to be built, as well as the reconstruction and construction of underground and above-ground utilities is to be performed. It also means the construction of a storm water drainage system, sanitary and water supply system, the so-called hydrant system with a tank and a fire water pumping station.
There are also plans to implement power and telecommunication networks, to build two transformer stations, an open storage tank with access roads, as well as service platforms for refrigerated containers. A similar scope of work concerns Square No. 2. Additionally, an access road will have to be built there from ul. Logistyczna and culvert and a temporary road from ul. Logistyczna in the line of the so-called technological road to the fire-prevention entry to Square no.2. The cost of the investment is estimated at nearly PLN 90 million.
